NBA 2K14 for Xbox One Hands Out Technical Fouls for Swearing Thanks to the Kinect

NBA 2K14 for the Xbox One is handing out technical fouls for bad language through the Kinect's voice and motion sensor.

A 2K14 user posted this video (warning adult language) to his YouTube account to show the technical foul he received during the game for cursing. Already frustrated with the way he was playing, the technical foul magnified his anger.

Players of FIFA 14 have noticed similar warnings within the games. According to Deadspin, one user got sent a letter from his "football club" in the game that scolded him for his "aggressive behavior" and told him his swearing was putting the club in a "bad light." See the letter here.

NBA 2K14 is filled with new features that take this game to the next level. NBA Today is an upgraded real time feature that connects the gamer with the NBA to create an almost realistic game playing experience. The game's real world integration of scores in the game will reflect what has happened in real life. While the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game update stats, scores, and ratings daily, the next-gen versions will update as it occurs.

"[NBA Today] is a feature we put out there a little silently for our current generation of the game to kind of test it out and tune it before the next-gen one comes out," Erick Boenisch, Visual Concepts and 2K Sports senior producer, told Polygon. "In the [current edition of NBA 2K14], it's like 'Hey, the Lakers played last night. They lost 115 to 114. Kobe had a pretty good game.'"

"In this one, it's going to be like 'They lost on a last second shot. Kobe missed it but he shot 14 for 28. He had 31 points. Got in foul trouble late in the game.' And that's the kind of detail that you don't get from the old system," he continued.

The feature is revolutionary and will be an integral part of all the games that will come out along the line.

NBA 2K14 was released on Oct. 1 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. It arrived for the PS4 on Nov. 15 and the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
