The software giant will ban those who use bad words while playing games and upload recordings of their gameplay via the “Share” function. A number of customers have already complained that they couldn’t use Skype and other apps reliant on Xbox Live on their new consoles.
The tech giant confirmed that while they don’t monitor P2P communications like Skype, videos uploaded through the Xbox One’s “Upload Studio” feature are monitored, and the company treats “excessive swearing” as the breach of terms of service.
Microsoft claims to take Code of Conduct moderation through Upload Studio very seriously. The company wants a clean, safe and fun environment for everyone, and excessive profanity and other violations will be enforced upon. Microsoft claimed that such behavior may even result in suspension of some or all privileges on Xbox Live. The company didn’t specify whether the monitoring was conducted through automated means or not, or whether the suspensions could escalate with repeated offenses.
Everyone knows that Internet gaming is notorious for its foul language with gamers experiencing abuse at the hands of other gamers across in-game communication services. Those have even led to a reporting mechanism where victims could flag abusers to warn or ban them.
Nevertheless, the decision to ban gamers for swearing in some games that themselves employ profanity as part of their mechanic brings in double standards. The users of the official Xbox online forum believe that it is quite strange that Microsoft allows people to record any game footage when there are games having really bad foul language.

They should provide one XBox online kid channel. Let's us adult express what we like or feel
|I don't know why people are buying a Xbox one or PS4 anyway there's not much difference from 360 and PS3 the companies are just running out of money.I'm even thinking on quitting gaming because it's more about graphics and online play than it is about fun and storyline.The price of games today are ridiculous they charge between £40-£60 and you've completed it in 4 hours and half the time you don't even like the game and you don't even get half the price you paid when you trade it in.People think COD is great but apart from the outfit it's no different to kill zone it's a straight forward shoot game.|

|And how long before the same happens on PC gaming?.|
|#6 . This will NEVER happen with PC gaming. I can control everything about my gaming experience and no one can ban me off my own computer.|
|Thought police controlling the masses telling them what they can play,say,see and think,George Orwell is no doubt rolling over at many revolutions a minute in his grave.Between Microshite and the NSA Iam glad I use Linux,where do these people get off telling us what we can and cannot say,how we play games or what we can and cannot watch.Iam so glad I do not have an XBox and never will.|
|Yeah THIS SITE will ban you for swearing too!!! lol EPIC article FAIL... Both are lame.|

|For the Xbox I think rules iz rules and swearing should be banned, not just excessive swearing. That will be the fast lane to cleaning up the platform. I get loads of wingey gits msg me with swear words and 'obscene' language which boils down to "Hey I'm Pro and this is is an important message!! - You can't play as well as me. I'm awesome" . Yeah yeah.|
Gears Of War 3 FTW tho.

|There are so many idiots out there gaming that I completely agree with this. If you can't express yourself without cussing up a storm or making someone feel bad then go shove something up your a-hole, douche. Seriously... anyone that claims their freedom of speech is being infringed upon, remember, your rights are only valid as long as they don't impose on someone else's rights. Damn bunch of teens thinking they are cool because they can use words they would never use in an actual human encounter is patheic. Grow up kids, shut your mouth and learn something.|
|no backwards compatibility with PS3 games killed the PS4 for me, they scan keep it.|
|That last part makes a good point.. The users of the official Xbox online forum believe that it is quite strange that Microsoft allows people to record any game footage when there are games having really bad foul language...|
|Lame Idea, They will end up with no online gamers lol! But I agree I find swearing shows a lack of vocal eloquence, the fact I have 4 or 5 ebot warnings for swearing on ET is a bit puzzling because I generally don't swear. I've just recently commented on a youtube vid because the girls conversation was approx 50% swearing. So people, expect to pick up cheap x-box ones on eBay soon lol!|
Please note mr ebot there are no swear words in this post.
|i agree.i had to take my 3 sons headset off them after 6pm cos of the language on certain games everybody swears i know that.but if you ban some and make them aware it will be a better place for everyone....in private lobbys with youre invited mates that another question||
