Topic - Xbox Live
Xbox has a no-tolerance policy for foul language in its latest incarnation of communication between gamers.
Owners of the Xbox 360 will soon be able to watch a broad breadth of TV shows and other content through their gaming consoles _ though most of that won't be free.
Microsoft Corp. and the chief rules enforcer for Xbox Live are apologizing to a small West Virginia town and a 26-year-old gamer accused of violating the online gaming service's code of conduct by publicly declaring he's from Fort Gay _ a name the company considered offensive.
"In this very, very specific case, a mistake was made," he said, "and we're going to make it right."
Staying ahead of slang and policing Xbox for offensive is a constant challenge, he said.
