interview with Phil Spencer: You definitely will have the software capability to turn off all the capabilities of Kinect. We want to put the gamer in control. And privacy. The box data information that collects is your data; it stays with you. You are in control of what you want to be collected.

but why is it collected?

research purposes, see what sells, its a passive survey, doesnt interfere with you at all, it only collects data on what they might be able to make money off of, this whole "microsoft is goign to be watching everything you do" is stupid. its just a way to find out what their consumer base wants more of and what it can cut to streamline its business

They shouldn't be collecting that shit in the first place.

I don't want to get caught drinking a pepsi by Kinect and then suddenly get bombarded with pepsi ads.

I'd guess to recognise your face, your expressions, gestures, voice etc so that it can recognise them better and use them in games.
Here: interview highlights with Phil Harrison (full link at bottom)

_“Microsoft has very, very good policies around privacy. We’re a leader in the world of privacy, I think you’ll find,

“We take it very seriously. We aren’t using Kinect to snoop on anybody at all. We listen for the word ‘Xbox on’ and then switch on the machine, but we don’t transmit personal data in any way, shape or form that could be personally identifiable to you, unless you explicitly opt into that.”

They have designed a modern piece of hardware, which has the capabilities of the chips in the box, plus the power of Kinect, plus the power of the cloud, working in harmony.”

The executive also noted that Microsoft won’t force developers to integrate Kinect into game, and hopes that future uses of the tech will be more appealing to gamers.

“It could be just as simple as a voice command, or it could be just as simple as knowing there’s more than one person in the room at the same time, and being able to automatically populate options and user interface – knowing there are two people playing or three people playing,”

“I think that if you are at the leading edge of technology in the home then you will want the power of Skype working with your TV and with your game experience seamlessly, and being able to switch smoothly between them,” he said.

“Just being able to have the game snap to the screen and have a Skype call on the side doesn’t have to impact the game at all, but adds a degree of socialisation and social features to games that were never there before, so I think that’s going to be very credible and I hope very compelling.”
