Will The Xbox One Live Up To Its “No Jerks” Promise

For the last few months, Microsoft has been saying that the new reputation system being used with the upcoming Xbox One console will cut down on the number of crap-talking tools that have historically kept some gamers away from taking advantage of online multiplayer games. Now the company is explicitly marketing the Xbox One as a “No Jerks” experience. (Xbox One)

As long as I'm playing, there will always be jerks on XBL.

Baby boy can't take a joke? Why am I not surprised!

=P

Ofcourse there will always be jerks online, thing is if the system works they will be playing with other jerks. But hey it could turn into a giant circlejerk

I think there will always be jerk, and people can be cool most of the time and jerk every now and then too, so this won't eliminate it.

However, if the community is spread across a wide population of different people, then in theory you should end up playing with people more similar to you. That means, jerk or no jerk, they are similar!

I see only one way to get rid of jerks (as in drastically reduce it):

Make every Xbox Live account link to a real facebook profile. When you are no longer anonymous, people start thinking twice about being @ssholes.

Combine this with the fact that MS charges you a fee for the account, then it gets expensive to be an @asshole.

Probably not, because some of their most die hard fans take offense to everything.
Hicken  +   641d ago
If the MS fans that are on this site actually buy the XB1, it'll be jerk resplendent.
CrossingEden  +   641d ago
Maybe because people like YOU constantly harass us. -_- I'm actually glad people like you will be on a different console.
nukeitall  +   641d ago
Look here, Xbox One news, but we got the Playstation fangirl Hicken in here attacking gamers that like Xbox One.

Guess we know who the jerk is!
malokevi  +   641d ago
amen, brother. Will be more then happy to rid myself of the N4G SDF when XB1 drops. Go our separate ways, never to meet again!

*sigh of relief*

If they can keep MS PR staff off of Live then they should be fine.

i bet people will abuse the system...
kratos_TheGoat  +   641d ago
there will be jerks in every console like pc, ps3, 360 wii u, etc just ignore them by mute them that sometimes I will do
dillhole  +   641d ago
No jerks on XBL? That's like promising no nerds at an anime convention.
ilovefatgirls  +   641d ago
it most certainly will not the system is there to be gamed, sorry for pun
MacTastic  +   641d ago
This system will be horrible abused, the jerks are going to report good players, and friends are going to help their friends out buy giving them good feedback. But in the end it will change nothing and jerks will be jerks.
admiralvic  +   641d ago
It's literally impossible.

Why is that the case? Well there are far too many people out there and there are too many factors. Like some people don't take offense to many things, where as some people will act like saying "Halo isn't my favorite game" is the same as saying it's the single most generic game that frat boys play to seem cooler than the CoD kiddies.

The jerks are only on fighters and shooters. Everything you do is considered a scrub tactic to them.
2pacalypsenow  +   641d ago
like ythey promised for xbox 360?
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   641d ago
They will exist on any platform.
memots  +   641d ago

It's impossible for one reason...everybody is a dick every once in awhile, it's an inevitability.
Intentions  +   641d ago
It probably will work, but then people will prob find a way around, you can't guarantee everything to work according to plan.
iliimaster  +   641d ago
everyone here has ran into the people who report you for kicking their @$$ in a multiplayer game, ive seen it all on xbl since halo and gears, its so common and thats where this system is BS
AceBlazer13  +   641d ago
comon , it's the internet jerks aren't goin anywhere. your jerk is somone's buddy.
paul-p1988  +   641d ago
The only way they might make it 'jerk free' is by making people use their real name. Surprisingly, once that veil of anonymity has disappeared they change their attitude.

But then again, 8yrs on CoD would just be abusive anyway...

The 'jerks' chose what direction XBone development took. Weak hardware, intrusive spying, restrictive policies that will return with time, lies and attempted deceit, on and on.
Jerks.
BladerunnerZX  +   640d ago
Just ban the racist bad mouth 12 year olds and that would rid every online game of at least 50% of these "jerks".
