Ok so slight exaggeration but I couldn't fit the title I wanted in the topic bar.

A guy uploaded a video playing NBA 2K14 and when he cursed out loud in his own home Kinect caught it and cause a "Technical Foul" in game. This kinda shit would really fricken annoy me

I wonder if you could turn that off in the settings, but I think that's pretty cool honestly. :P At least the idea of it is neat.

The idea makes no sense, why do you have to be a total zen player?

Because if you swear during a real basketball game you'll likely get called for a technical. As long as you can turn it off somewhere it's a kinda cool/funny idea.

Interesting, since I drop f-bombs every time I get killed in CoD. Every f**king time. I have never had the game tell me that I have a potty mouth, and I swear so much I would make a sailor blush. Especially when I get stabbed...

Perhaps this was his headset, and not Kinect?

It's a bit of both no?

But imagine playing a game of it and some friend or family member comes in and shouts "fuck" messing up your game? lol

This happened last year too. It's more of a cool novelty than anything for me.

No dumbass it's more of a feature with EA not with Kinect. The option can be turned off from what I understand. You're an idiot if you think this has anything to do with MS or the XOne Kinect.

Be thankful it doesn't watches you fap

In before "innovation"?

#25 Edited by mems_1224 (44738 posts) -

It would be embarrassing if this was old, also on ps4 and optional.....oh wait, its all of those

#26 Posted by BruceBenzing (277 posts) -

So no playing the Uncle Fukka song while I game?

#27 Posted by -Rhett81- (3536 posts) -

ok that's hilarious

#28 Edited by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

You've got to be kidding me. Now the Kinect is the social police?

If one wants to play video games while swearing and carrying on, one should be able to exercise this liberty in their own home.

Why can't people swear? The Xbox One has no feelings, it's feelings cannot be hurt by bad language. Ha, plus in this country for instance, you can swear at police officers the whole day long and they are not allowed to be offended by bad language.

What is the rationale for this? Immersion? Jesus christ. Why not deduct points for failing to wear a suit courtside then? Jesus.

I'll just put Kinect to English and swear in good old Flemish.

Godverkut!

Microsoft told me and we both know they're very reliable.

Kind of funny, actually. Hopefully, if can be turned off if need be.

Lol, its actually part of the game not microsoft, it's how the developer of the game implemented kinect and ps camera. Stupid as far as i'm concerned. Dead rising 3 should give you health for swearing.

why distract a good thread with facts and reason. Let the monkeys continue to throw feces at the wall. It's the only way order is kept around here.

So? At any time anyone can get near you and press some random button messing up your game. Are we gonna bitch and whine about controllers too?

Kind of silly to blame Kinect when 2k chose to use it as such.
