They are still gonna be banned in military bases/sensitive work areas due to the kinect always on camera unless they revise that too.

I hear you can disable it but that won't fly by military standards.

ETA: .... But if the console was offline since day +1, would it matter?

I'm sure the military doesn't even want the remote chance of hackers (independent or foreign agencies) remotely turning the consoles on and using them to collect information. Or directly tinkering with the Xboxes in order to to do the same.

You're right, this is the military--let's throw logic out the window

As it stands right now, I'll be getting a PS4 and maybe a XbOne waaaaaay down the road ('cause I'm a slut).

Sorry Microsoft, you didn't hurt me in a good way this time.
