Xbox chief Phil Spencer is no stranger to talking about toxicity, inclusion and what can be done to improve online where people gather to play games. Spencer wrote more than once to talk about the topics and even published his long post on a blog, discussing the topic, and in a new interview with Kotaku he again shared his thoughts. He expanded some of the prospects he shared in the blog post and resolutely said that "Xbox Live is not a free speech platform."
Spencer's post, published on May 20, gives some insight into his conversations with Kotaku's understanding of what was being discussed, so read it if you did not. He told Kotaku at the time of publishing this publication and said it was related to Microsoft's "Gaming for Everyone" pushing to make Xbox platforms more inclusive and accessible. Spencer admits there may be some who are not crazy about the direction Microsoft is targeting, but stressed that these people will not have the right to say what they want to others in these online communities. now is, just as we make progress in the games for all because we will do more in our services as we increase parental control, there will be a segment of fringe that does not like the direction we are going in, "Spencer said. "I'm public before: Xbox Live is not a free speech platform. This is not a place where everyone can come and say something. And since we are working to ensure that this is a safe and inclusive environment for all, I do not want to be opaque to it. I want to be there in the front and center to find out our motivation. "
Spencer's comments on Xbox Live, which are not a platform for freedom of speech, should not be too surprising for those who use it, certainly not those who have ever been forbidden for something they have said. With chat and moderation policies that do not allow players to lobby aggressively or offensive comments or phrases to other players, there has always been some limitation on what you can say and do. Microsoft is just dealing with this question right now and doing it with other features such as the Looking For Group friend and allowing players to place more restrictions on their own account if they want to. so it's all about taking one, many of the controls that are already in place, and really focusing on a child account and expanding them, and then continuing on that, "Spencer said. "The blog post did not miss" why "why do we do that."
