An newspaper article here rather highlights the 1984 "Big Brother" abilities of the xbox :

- It can watch and monitor people
- it can recognize faces
- it can recognize gestures
- it can see how people react (of course this must be programmed as well)
- it is able to "see" even in the dark (infrared vision)
- it is therefore able to use face recognizion and gesture recognition to monitor how people react towards movies, advertisements, games, etc. …

It is therefore the perfect surveiillance tool.
Because everybody buys it at free will.
