Xbox on Tuesday introduced a new set of “Community Standards” for online conduct — i.e. what is and isn’t acceptable behavior. While Microsoft has always had a conduct policy (and sanctions for violating it) for Xbox Live, the examples and casual tone the Standards document uses lets players know how to talk a little trash without going over the line. “A little trash talk is an expected part of competitive multiplayer action, and that’s not a bad thing,” the document begins. “But hate has no place here, and what’s not okay is when that trash talk turns into harassment.” To further draw the distinction, Microsoft calls trash talk “lighthearted banter or bragging that focuses on the game at hand.” Harassment is when someone gets personal, disruptive, “or likely to make someone feel unwelcome or unsafe.” In a series of examples that have traveled Reddit and social media in the past few days, clear themes … [Read more...] about Xbox Live’s new standards try to define acceptable trash talk

In a sign that Microsoft wants to further unify Xbox and PC players under a shared ecosystem, Discord is coming to Xbox Live sometime in the near future. Best known as a kind of a free chat app, Discord is commonly used among gaming communities for all sorts of purposes, ranging from functioning as an even more private in-game chat channel to simply being a place where people with similar interests can talk to each other. This partnership will allow Xbox users to link their Discord accounts to their Xbox Live Gamertags.

Xbox Insiders can preview this new feature right now by going to the Account Settings menu on their consoles. From there, you can go to “Linked … [Read more...] about Microsoft and Discord Team Up to Bring Discord to Xbox Live
