Apparently the latest update for the PS4 has been causing quite a lot of concern. After the PS4 8.00 update, it seems that chat conversations will be able to be recorded and sent to Sony for "moderation", causing immediate concerns about privacy and possible misuses of this policy.
I'm honestly surprised this isn't causing more of a stir out there. I remember everyone charged against the original XBOne about the kinect being always on and recording, yet this seems ok? I'm not even sure if this is even legal, I don't know if Sony can unilaterally decide to record an user's voice. People who don't agree with this can't even do a thing about it, and in an age when online privacy is becoming more and more difficult this is a really worrying move. Unless they give users the right to reject this feature, this will have a ton of potential for abuse.
You know it deserves the GOTY.
