Google to Track Gaming Behavior?


 Ooh, oh no. This doesn’t sound good.

Google might be taking a Big Brother role with gamers, possibly tracking their gaming habits and creating psychological profiles of players.

It looks like the target is World of Warcraft and Second Life players, and privacy groups are nervous.

Errrm, oh dear. And people thought the tracking for adverts in Battlefield 2142 was bad.

Besides, there are a heck of a lot of impracticalities by wanting to create a psychological profile through a virtual medium…but that would require thinking, so obviously Google haven’t reached that thought yet.
