Not that this is a surprise to anyone, but Sony can monitor your voice communication and will do so. What separates this from others from the past is that they're not saying it's because of law enforcement. They're doing it for their own reasons. I'm not to sure how well that will sit with some people. With the uproar people made about the Xbox One sending pictures of your randomly to their servers, which was proven false, how will the masses react to this? Will people be OK with Sony listening to your conversations at their choosing for their own reasons and not because of law enforcement forcing? via Polygon and Sony (full ToS).
