Xbox 360 Opens Pandora's Box of Privacy Concerns

HEXUS gaming has posted information and screenshots related to Xbox LIVE that you've got to see if you're an Xbox 360 owner, or someone who is in the process of acquiring one. The information is especially relevant if you're planning on using the Xbox's Extender functionality to communicate with your Media Center PC. HEXUS says: "Simply put, anyone you've been in contact with through Xbox LIVE can subsequently see what you're up to, regardless of whether they're in your friends list or not. [...] The amount of detail Xbox LIVE passes to others goes way beyond just being helpful in linking you up with other gamers, so far beyond that you could easily regard it as a pretty major intrusion into your privacy." eHomeUpgrade | Xbox 360 Opens Pandora's Box of Privacy Concerns
