Xbox One wants you to watch your mouth.

Players of “NBA 2K14” are being penalized if the machine detects too much cursing.

“Swearing too much earns users a technical foul for bad language,” says the Onion’s A.V. Club. One user even got this message: “Refrain from using such colorful language in the future and control your overly aggressive nature.”

Yeah, that ought to take care of it. Besides, no one in the real world of professional sports ever swears during a game, right?
