“To be clear, the Xbox Live Policy & Enforcement team does not monitor direct peer-to-peer communications like Skype chats and calls,”

I'm glad this is getting monitored, I don't want some video filled with cuss words or some dude stripping himself or his wife to be exposed to a minor.

It's good that there is some moderation going on.

If you want that stuff, you can always get a PS4.

I'm glad that MS has had a XBL Policy and Enforcement team since the beginning. They have done a marvelous job at trying to keep all the anonymous and rude @sshats at bay.

I think this new reputation system will help on XBL with smart matchmaking!

MS is at the forefront of online community building.

@nukeitall The first online lobby of Forza 5 that I join with my friend, everyone there is extremely nice and polite, and they're now on my friends list. This is a stark contrast from forza 4 lobbies, where I once got hounded on by some no life after I got caught in the first turn of the race and rear ended him, and he kept going until everyone else kicked him.

Those people have all been banned and Twitch have said that it is a gaming streaming website and anyone caught not streaming game content will be banned....if that's not moderating then i don't know what is.

Don't act like if X1 had twitch we wouldn't be seeing the exact same thing. Idiotic people aren't exclusive to any particular console.

Them -"the Xbox Live Policy & Enforcement team does not monitor direct peer-to-peer communications "

You -"I'm glad this is getting monitored"


"Don't know why you are getting so upset and emotional."

What are you talking about? I was simply replying to your not sure how you read my comment but im not upset in the slightest.....quite the opposite actually, only 4 more days until my PS4 is here.

I meant to agree, not disagree.

XboxFun2619d ago (Edited 2619d ago )

Don't know why you are getting so upset and emotional. (and why I have 13 disagrees)I am glad that this content is getting heavy moderation and people are getting banned when uploading inappropriate material.

As I have stated I do not want minors viewing anything inappropriate while gaming on a console whether that be PS4 or Xbox One (or PC).

"Don't act like if X1 had twitch we wouldn't be seeing the exact same thing."

Calm down dude, I never acted like it wouldn't. Let's leave the fanboy-ism at the door and think about the children.

They don't monitor peer to peer, but the person(s) in question did not do a peer to peer chat. It was an uploaded video for most to see.

If you haven't noticed, Lukas is an emotional dude......... hehehehehehehehehe

Gozer2618d ago

Don't mind Lukas hes a sony troll that finds his way into every X1 article.

"cuss words"

Really? Some users shouldn't be able to stream/upload content because they say some naughty words? At 27, I don't want to have to watch my language tbh. Honestly I haven't seen this stuff in action so can't comment however there should at least be an adult section for people who want to talk freely.

Granted I'm in full agreement with the stripping etc however being honest, it wouldn't be the internet without some desperate loser whacking off on webcam.

according to your 37+ disagrees people want minors to get exposed to inappropriate behavior. I know people on N4G are made up of fanboys but now we have a bunch of pedophiles here to?

You people are are gross and need freakin help...

pompombrum2619d ago (Edited 2619d ago )

I don't think anyone wants to see minors exposed to antics like stripping nor should anyone but ultimately, I for one would rather have Microsoft give people options like child restrictions as opposed to just censoring and/or banning anything deemed inappropriate to minors.

Granted stripping should obviously be fully banned but swearing too? There needs to be a happy middle somewhere. Providing restrictions are in place, it's not Microsoft's job to parent people's children.

NeoTribe2618d ago

Wow, way to take things to a super stupid level.

Clearly you didn't have a 360 when Uno launched.

Jdoki2618d ago

Some things cannot be unseen!!

Have never played Uno since... Either digital or the physical game.

@xbox fun

I totally agree... stuff like that should not be allowed cos people always find a way to abuse these mediums of entertainment..its good ms is putting a check on this..not happy abt it then get a wii u or ps4

LordDhampire2618d ago

Man I completely see why I can't do a xbox one, that smart matchmaking system is terrible, You can't play with friends in your party just because you are considered a troll? what is this madness? If people don't want to here profanity they shouldn't be on the internet.

The people trolling xbox live weren't the ones ruining it, they were the ones having real fun. It was you ruining it

UltimateMaster2618d ago

To be honest, they just seem a lot better when they don't talk.

Wouldn't you use Skype with real friends and family, if a minor gives his phone details away to some random gamer he has Just met on cod then that's his fault. I use Skype alot but only with my real friends and family not half random gamer friends I have just met ? That's why parents should monitor what there kids actually do on the internet etc

modesign2619d ago

i was wondering why your skyping your friends and its filled with cuss words and

Software_Lover2619d ago

More to the story than meets the eye. People like to vent on Social media for attention and for ballooning issues that don't need spotlight.

Like I said, people have said worse on Skype over the years and they use it still freely. There is more to the story than is being told. A simple "screenshot" pic does not tell the whole story.
