It's not as if the Xbox One had a bad reputation already...
Why is MS on such a PR train wreck? Honest question, from my perspective they've been shooting themselves in the foot several times already (remember the 24hr connection/buy a 360 debacle?)
I'm also surprised the Windows 8.1 integration with Bing that analyzes your local files hasn't erupted into another PR scandal that is at least as big as the one Canonical went through - this being actually worse, since Canonical doesn't analyze your local files to show you ads as far as I know, and more like LG's scanning of USB keys in their own latest spying scandal.
Can't believe I'm linking to TechCrunch of all sites. Heh.
Unless they try to recognize whether it's from the game or the speaker. But in that case it's kinda weird because why is it ok for a character in game to swear but person commentating it cannot swear? "Silly peasant, freedom of expression is for corporations".
On the other hand I'd love to see Sony respond to this with a similar video they made for sharing the games. Same actors, same smiles "This is how you can talk in your videos to those mtherfckers! PS4 - F*cking awesome!" (cencored due to lack of information about HN policy, kinda ironic isn't it?)
"violations will be enforced upon".. who? and really?
If Microsoft bans swearing in public, it's fine by me. Actually, it's probably a good thing, Xbox Live chat is terrible and could do with a cleanup.
However, It's my right to say what I want to my friends in private. I swear a lot when I'm on Skype calls. Probably too much, but that's not Microsoft's call to enforce. No pun intended.
"To be clear, the Xbox Live Policy & Enforcement team does not monitor direct peer-to-peer communications like Skype chats and calls. "
This comment actually got me thinking. What kinds of things will be possible in 1 or 2 more generations? When microphones (and cameras) are everywhere, internet-connected devices are ubiquitous, speech recognition isn't just better by then, but so is AI good enough to understand it and analyze it (to some limited extent.)
I have no idea what this means or what it could be used for but it's somewhat disturbing to me.
And my personal list of companies i don`t want to by electronic devices from just grows by the day. Just added LG to the list two days ago...
If you've ever played on XBox Live, you'll get what I mean. It's basically 12 year olds calling each other wonderful things such as c###s, f##s and n#####s  like it's a YouTube comment thread. It's appauling and totally ruins the experience for everyone else. They only do it as well because they know they are mostly anonymous.
 censored as I reckon I'd be hellbanned and then have to create another account, not becaue I wouldn't post them here.
Swearing in private calls doesn't lead to a ban. What does is uploading videos with profanity in it. This is Microsofts right to do. It would probably be better to age gate content considering the profanity in video games but whatever. Microsoft want to create a family friendly video site of people playing games.
The only complaint that can be made is that presumably there is no warning before you upload the video.
Don't Xbox Live Gold your customers Microsoft. Also, please refrain from creating new verbs.
