Yesterday Microsoft announced changes to their Terms of Service, set to go into effect on May 1st. Most were minor, but a significant revision to the agreement’s Code of Conduct warned of suspensions, bans, and even the loss of funds in your account as a penalty for using “offensive language.” Naturally, this has not sat well with many Xbox users, so Microsoft has stepped forward to clarify the situation.
In response to inquiries on Twitter, Mike Ybarra (Corporate Vice President of Xbox Program Management at Microsoft) indicated that there will be no policy changes on Xbox Live. It’s still unclear exactly how Microsoft will go about enforcing this new policy on services like Skype, but it appears that the Xbox brand is safe from any major shake-ups for now.
