Previously, Microsoft had shared some details about the Xbox Community Standards update. The company recently update about “acceptable trash talk,” and Microsoft provides some funny-sounding examples. But what’s the “acceptable trash talk”? Let’s remember it first…

Acceptable trash talk includes:

  • Get destroyed. Can’t believe you thought you were on my level.
  • That was some serious potato aim. Get wrecked.
  • Only reason you went positive was you spent all game camping. Try again, kid.
  • Cheap win. Come at me when you can actually drive without running cars off the road.
  • That sucked. Get good and then come back when your k/d’s over 1.

Going too far looks like:

  • Get <sexual threat>. Can’t believe you thought you were on my level.
  • Hey <profanity>, that was some serious potato aim. Get wrecked, trash.
  • Only reason you went positive was you spent all game camping. KYS, kid.
  • Cheap win. Totally expected from a <racial slur>.
  • You suck. Get out of my country—maybe they’ll let you back in when your k/d’s over 1

But Microsoft seems quite serious about it. Xbox’s Phil Spencer spoke in his blog post in which he wrote that “gaming is for everyone.” 

“First, gaming is for everyone. No one group “owns” gaming. Instead, whether you’re new to gaming or are a diehard e-sports fan, you are welcome to play and welcome to all the fun and skill-building that comes with gaming. In this way, when everyone can play, the entire world wins.

If you imagine gamers as predominantly men and specifically teen boys, think again. We are a 2.6 billion-person strong community of parents playing with our kids, adventurers exploring worlds together, teachers making math wondrous, grandmothers learning about their grandchildren through play, and soldiers connecting with their folks back home. Most gamers today are adults; nearly half are women.”  As part of the new policy, Microsoft launched the “for everyone” page.
