Game Content Usage Rules Clarification

We’ve heard some fans are confused about our Game Content Usage Rules and specifically using game titles in connection with user generated content. Of course, we recognize our community needs to use Game titles to identify and describe their creations. The portion of the Usage Rules in question is focused on using Game titles in ways that are confusing about the source of the content or misrepresent Microsoft’s role in the creation.

We took an exciting step forward last week by updating our Game Content Usage Rules to enable Xbox fans to participate in the partner programs on YouTube and Twitch and earn revenue for ads in connection with their videos. A major goal of this update was to bring the policy in line with current community usage. The policy has always been about enabling creators to use our game content, and we recognize it only works if their content can be found. The key here is for people to use game titles for discovery and not misrepresent Microsoft’s role in the content’s creation.

We’ve heard the feedback and will be updating the language in the policy to provide some more examples and clarification of this clause with the revised version below:

In addition, your Items may not use the name of the Microsoft Game in their title to give the impression that Microsoft is the source of the Item, or authorized or endorsed the Item. Items that make referential use of our titles are fine, for example, “Let’s Play Forza Motorsport 5” or “Tips and Strategies for Halo 5.” Using the Game title to tag your Item on social media is fine. We also don’t object to “Red vs. Blue” or “Operation Chastity”. But we may object to “Halo: Covenant Strike,” for example, if it could be confused as something Microsoft produced or licensed, or if it could be mistaken as an official part of the Game. We just want to make sure consumers don’t get confused.

Rest assured, we have not seen rampant abuse of this and we’re not actively seeking violations on YouTube and Twitch. We love that you’re passionate about our games and we want you to create great works. This is a small way for us to protect against abuse. Sorry if there was any confusion.

Xbox One Closes a Record-Breaking Holiday and Looks Ahead to 2015

I want to thank all of the Xbox fans who contributed to our record-setting holiday and making 2014 such a successful year. The Xbox One deals were quite popular and have inspired a new promotion starting January 16 where fans in the U.S. can buy an Xbox One for $349 at their preferred retailer.

Some interesting statistics about 2014:

• Xbox 360 became the best-selling seventh generation console of all time in the U.S.

• In 2014, users logged nearly 8 billion hours globally in apps across Xbox 360 and Xbox One, a
50 percent increase from time spent in 2013.

• Xbox One became the best-selling console in the U.S. in November and December and weekly average sales during these months outpaced Xbox 360 by 50 percent at the same point in its lifecycle.*

• Xbox One also sold more games throughout November and December in the U.S. than any other current-generation platform.*

• From November 24 to January 3, fans spent more time playing on Xbox than they ever have before, at any point in the history of Xbox.

• In the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta alone, 18 million games have been played to date.

The Xbox Wire has a great year in review summary and what to expect in 2015, including a few upcoming console titles and the future of PC gaming on Windows 10. You can find that article here.
