The people saying kids need a swear free enviroment need to talk to their own kids first. I used to talk to people on xbox live, but I got sick of the racial slurs and while i'm not offended by swearing, xbox live is just swearing, no actual conversation mixed in. But the by far worst offenders sounded and acted like 10-16 year olds. Most adults either don't talk or are pretty respectful. Kids are the worst offenders of this policy, especially the racial stuff, i've heard the "n" word on xbox live 100x more than in real life.

This move by Xbox/Microsoft is incredibly hypocritical. On one hand they want to stop Xbox users from using foul language, yet Xbox cranks out a plethora of games that are rated "M" for strong language, i.e. foul language, vulgarity and profanity. This actually goes beyond hypocrisy by Microsoft, it's irresponsible and indefensible. And we wonder why America's youth have such foul mouths when they're fed a constant stream of low-life language. Please write to Microsoft to stop this nonsense.

Criticizing Microsoft for supporting games with swear words in them is like criticizing your Sony TV for playing movies containing profanity. Each game is developed by individual studios, and Microsoft has no business mandating developers create their games in any certain way. Utah's and SigmaBlue's ignorance concerning videogames is astounding.

With this move, Microsoft has become one of the first companies to officially fight online profanity, and may very well be the largest. That they're willing to risk the inevitable backlash trying to do something good is very honorable, and I hope many other companies decide to follow suit.

Muchascha misses the entire point. It's Microsoft's name on the game,and the hypocrisy is still valid. Try thinking through your supposed line of logic before you lash out at others.
