All that said, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. As Kotaku notes, its not clear if users can get away with blocking or obscuring the Kinect sensor from watching them if they still want to play games. Whats more, Microsoft hasnt yet provided any details about what it will do with all the data that Kinect records of users behavior in their living rooms. Instead, the Microsoft spokesperson simply said that we know our customers want and expect strong privacy protections to be built into our products, devices and services, and for companies to be responsible stewards of their data while adding that the company would fill in the blanks on privacy questions at a later date, most likely at the E3 gaming convention in June.
