Xbox is cracking down on bad behavior in a big way. They’ve introduced a new rule that can get players in trouble if they use too many bad words or do mean things online. This new rule is like a strike system, kind of like getting in trouble at school.
Here’s how it works: Every time you do something bad, like using bad words or cheating, you get a strike. Think of it like a little mark on your record. If you get two strikes, you’re not allowed to play for one day. Get four strikes, and you’re in trouble for a whole week. But here’s the kicker: If you manage to get eight strikes, you won’t be able to use any of the social features on Xbox for a whole year!
The things that can give you strikes include using bad language (that’s one strike), cheating (also one strike), being really mean or saying inappropriate stuff (that’s two strikes), and using hateful speech (that gets you three strikes).
Do you know that Netflix has launched its debut into cloud-streamed gaming, launching the first public testing of this new business in a key step toward growing its digital entertainment empire? Netflix users in Canada and the UK will enjoy exclusive access to a number of games on certain TVs, connected TV devices, and Netflix.com web browsers starting Monday:
Xbox wants everyone to play nicely, so they’ve made a list of things you shouldn’t do. They’re like the rules of the game. If you see someone doing something bad, you can tell Xbox about it, and they’ll take care of it.
But don’t worry, if you think you got in trouble by mistake, you can ask Xbox to take another look. It’s like telling a teacher you didn’t do anything wrong.
Before you start playing, Xbox wants you to read their rules so you know what’s allowed. So remember, when you’re playing online, be kind and follow the rules, or you might end up with a strike against your name!
