    Xbox One has a feature where you can upload game clips. It also lets you skype. If you say bad words though, you'll get banned:

    Oh shit, Skype censoring? :P How absurd. And I thought Nintendo was being prudish lately. O.o

    Microsoft's online infrastructure is such a joke. I mean seriously, you have to pay to have access to it and yet they ban more people than any other online service. It's completely ridiculous. I'd rather it be free and not have to worry about being banned for stupid junk like this.

    soo...essentially microsoft is monitoring your conversation on Skype....NICE.
    Now i know not to bother using skype on my xbox one.

    I mean come on really, skype is a messaging app that is used by more than just xbox.
    This is just crazy to ban someone from using skype just because they used profanity while they were using it on the xbox one.
    Even though, the person receiving the message on skype most likely isnt even on an xbox.

    Wonder how it deals with accents or drawn out versions of words, I usually enjoy pushing these features to breaking like that. Would love to get their blacklist as well ( http://hackmii.com/2010/04/bad-words/ ).

    Anyway I guess this is some sort of incentive thing to make Live a slightly less vile place to be, not sure it is the way I would have set about doing it but I suppose baby steps and all that.

    Nowhere does it say that Microsoft is monitoring or banning you based on your Skype convos.

    The post only talks about getting banned from Skype for saying a bad word in an uploaded video.

    Great reading though folks.

    I thought that spamming profanity was what attracted a large percentage of the Xbox's audience...

    Please. You expect people on GBAtemp to actually READ the post instead of just basing their comments off of the title?

    EDIT: In case it's too hard for people to understand...

    "However, he said that there may be some issues with Skype and Upload Studio, which matches what others have been saying."

    It's a bug, people. Microsoft isn't spying on you, they aren't censoring you, etc.

    So TeamSpeak is going to get some LP'ers. Perhaps they'll become more well known?
    But honestly, cursing in a recorded video is so common. This all just seems kind of silly.

    Maybe you didn't read as well as you think you did:

    So if Microsoft starts giving temporary bans for people who use bad language, might we then see the end of Xbox Live? :unsure: But, um, why are they censoring Skype anyway? Are they going to use that for the regular voice chat instead of whatever you guys have right now? (I dunno how you guys speak on XBLive; you use those headsets, but does it just read your voice? I'm not into voice chat or online play. I'm used to the chat feature that was on the N64.)

    So gamers can't use bad language in their videos?
    I think they're banning 99% of their consumers.

    I don't think there's a single person on the Xbox side that doesn't cuss. the only people that could ever want this are the mothers who don't understand that the F bombs they're hearing are from their own children not people from over the internet

    And those same mothers probably wouldn't even know about the banning until their children get banned.

    Nintendo has gotten very chill about swearing. Or at least far more chill than you would expect from a company like them. It used to be that you'd get banned from Miiverse if you even thought about saying the word "poo", but I see "damn" used quite often without consequence these days.

    Spybox One, even worse I've made a troll post on another site during E3's airing that I've stated that this thing would ban people who cuss in chats, the trolling is coming true.
