They want to censor you before you even say "Fuu..."

Surely this is going to just create ways to get round swears? And what else are they going to deem acceptable language? Are they going to blank me if I start talking about PDF files? ;-)

It'd be great if this worked like the censoring in GTA SA where certain words are automatically replaced with non-offensive alternatives.

Hmm. So this system 'recognises key words and renders them “unintelligible or inaudible”. I thought Live already did that to all voice comms. I didn't realise it was a feature.

Was so tempted to abuse my mod powers and change Il's post so it said "carrots"

but that would be wrong. Freedom of speech n'all that.

they really need to do more than just make it inaudible though, especially as it seems to be talking about racial slurs etc, not just swear words. it should replace what the person said with comments back about them. bloke says "you fucking gay nigger" it should say "i want to be penetrated roughly by a big black man" in a very effeminate voice and so on :)

Cum drinker.

Surely neither the word "Come" nor the word "drinker" are going to be censored?

To that end...

"Ass Mangler" would be OK and surely "Marmite Miner" would still be legit.

Will this put much lag on the VoiceComms?
I imagine it delays transmission while it analyses the signal, wonder how much delay there is and will the Rainbow 6 brigade get boned?

If it lags the voice comms to any extent MS will get crucified so sharply they'll have to go back on it.

Can you imagine if this blocks the word "Faggot" ? I'd be able to actually switch on public voice again in online games against yanks.

Actually it'd have to also block the word Eurofag too

How many languages would this cover incidentally? Sales of the book titled "swearwords in over 50 languages" could go through the roof. I imagine it would at least make live a bit more colourfully mixed.

"je t'en merde"
"va franculo (sp?)"
"halt's maul"
"que?"
"that was my kill you arschkriecher"
