Blog: Idiots on Xbox Live
Many people don’t understand how tough gaming life can be. Playing an amazing game on MW3 only for your Internet to die when your moments away from a moab/nuke, putting 30 plus hours into a game only for the save to corrupt, surely we’ve all suffered one of the above.
But one thing that has been a constant since I can remember is the XBOX LIVE PENIS.
These are not rare things that David Attenborough hunts down for a BBC one special, oh no, these people ruin a game every minute somewhere in the world. I kind to need to get this off my chest, as I think this has been going on since I can remember and clearly the system that Microsoft has in place is a failure.
A Category One Penis:
The final straw for me was the other week while reviewing Wrecked for Xbla. Having the game about 30 minutes I decided to try out MP only to stall the game through no fault of my own with the game having day one DLC. What followed was a voice message from a low life using many curse words and questioning if I had a brain. I know my Grammar sucks, but trust me I do have the brain capacity to press an A button. But what hit me was my 6 year old sometimes jumps on my gamertag, what if he had heard that?
Now I know the 360 has all this family settings for blocking such things, but why should I turn this on just because of people like the above. Does he have a block nice gamer filter on his Xbox? I pay my 40 pound per year just like he does. So what could Microsoft do to maybe improve the system?
I would like to see a forward message option for every message you receive from anyone, as you then know any such message will be read or heard and not get put into a long lost vault of complaints. Maybe even a record function such as Call of duty, which you could record in game voices rather than footage and then forward that on. With Microsoft making millions every year from us surely they need to start looking at the growing increase of this major issue over Xbox Live and do something about it.
Interested in whatever you guys have to say below. Have any of you suffered from the Xbox live penis? if so tell me about it and what did you do about it.
