2K Sports has explained that if the Kinect or PlayStation Camera catches you using profanity while playing NBA 2K14, you’ll be given a technical foul.
A 2K Sports representative confirmed to Polygon in NBA 2K14 that if the Kinect or PlayStation Camera catches wind of a player using profanity while playing the game, you’ll be given a technical foul. This applies to all users who have an Kinect on Xbox One, Xbox 360 or the PlayStation Camera on PS4. Though it should be noted that, even though this functionality is enabled by default, there is an option to disable it in the game menu if the player decides too.
You can see NBA 2K14‘s voice-activated technical fouls for yourself in the video from YouTube user ‘randomfrankp‘. He flies into a rage after being slapped with a technical for swearing at Kinect in the Xbox One version of NBA 2K14 (NSFW language, obviously).
When asked what words could lead to a technical foul, the 2K Sports Representative said, “The obvious ones are there.” The representative also explained that “this was a feature we incorporated [in] NBA 2K13 that we felt brought both realism to the game, and a more civilized online environment for our players. The result was so positive we have continued it in NBA 2K14.“
NBA 2K14 is avaiable on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows, iOS and Androidyoutube, polygon
