NBA 2K14 is literally going to put you on the court and will take into consideration any behavior that’s against the spirit of the game. A video released by one gamer shows how the Kinect heard him cursing while playing the game and as a result was awarded a technical foul in the game for excessive swearing.
“Oh my God, that’s ridiculous — I can’t curse in my own house,” the gamer says after receiving a technical foul. “I spent $530 for an Xbox One and you’re going to penalize me?”
NBA 2K14 is not the only game to keep language in check. Another user has noted a similar problem while playing FIFA 14 on the PlayStation 4.
It appears that the cursing-recognition is a feature you can turn off while playing in case you want to swear without penalty. I’ve yet to purchase an Xbox One console so I can’t really confirm as to what games are offering this feature.
In the mean time you can either take on the referee or else try and go through a gaming session without uttering the naughty words.
