There have been rumblings that swearing in Skype calls on Xbox One can result in the loss of Xbox Live account privileges, but it's actually the Upload Studio you need to be careful with. You may have seen this image that's been making the rounds. Funny grammatical errors aside, yes, swearing too much in videos recorded using Upload Studio can get you in trouble.

A Microsoft representative gave a statement to TechCrunch, which reads: "To be clear, the Xbox Live Policy & Enforcement team does not monitor direct peer-to-peer communications like Skype chats and calls. Also, we take Code of Conduct moderation via Upload Studio very seriously. We want a clean, safe and fun environment for all users. Excessive profanity as well as other Code of Conduct violations will be enforced upon and result in suspension of some or all privileges on Xbox Live. We remain committed to preserving and promoting a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for all of our Xbox Live members."

Naturally, concerns have been raised about why swearing is such a big deal for footage of games which feature graphic depictions of violence and profanity, and I tend to agree. Surely there is a better solution here than a flat-out ban on harsh language.

Your hard drive cries: Master Chief Collection takes up 65 GB of space

It kind of feels like beating a dead horse at this point, but each instance somehow still seems more noteworthy than the last. Nowadays, games are big. Really big. And, apparently when you pack four games into one, the result...more
