Hårda regler för vad avatarer får och inte får göra

Din Xbox 360-avatar är en svärmorsdröm

Med New Xbox Experience kom som bekant avatarerna till Xbox 360 - alltså möjligheten att skapa en liten fånig figur som till en början inte verkade fylla så stor funktion. Det går fortfarande att diskutera hur mycket funktion avatarerna egentligen har, men nu börjar det i alla fall dyka upp spel där man kan använda dem.

Den som hoppades få använda sin avatar för att gå bärsärk, svära, skjuta heroin eller ha sex kan dock glömma detta. Microsoft har nämligen satt upp en lista med hårda regler för de utvecklare som vill använda avatarerna i spel. Bortsett från redan nämnda förbud kan exempelvis nämnas att avatarerna inte får ha någon röst, uppträda aggressivt eller spotta. Snacka om svärdomsdrömmar alltså - eller riktiga mesar...

Full lista på Microsofts avatarriktlinjer efter hoppet.

Spel, Microsoft, Xbox 360, XBL,

* Player interacts with their avatar as if it?s a separate character

A player?s avatar does not have an autonomous personality or instinct. The avatar is under the control of the owning player. It can have idle animations and can respond appropriately to game events but it should not interact with the user as if it is separate from the player, try to get the player?s attention in an annoying manner

* Violence which causes blood, gore, dismemberment, decapitation, maiming, or mutilation

Cartoon violence is allowed. Violence is allowed as long as there is no blood, gore, dismemberment, decapitation, maiming, or mutilation. An example of allowable injuries includes injuries that might befall an avatar in a sporting event such as American football. Avatars can die temporarily to depict failure.

* Player?s avatar talks

The player?s avatar should not have their own voice. They are allowed to make individual sounds, such as laughing and crying but otherwise cannot use a voice

* Acts of sexual innuendo or mildly explicit sexual descriptions or images or sexual posturing

Sexual acts or terminology cannot be insinuated or enacted

* Excretes obscene bodily fluids or substances

No sexual or bodily fluids or substances can come from the avatar

* Glamorized criminal act

Criminal activities need to be relevant to the story and are presented unfavorably

* Acts of an aggressive or threatening manner

Gratuitous insults, bullying, intimidation or otherwise violent or emotional abuse of a position of power are not allowed. Avatars may leave innocents or bystanders slightly injured, but not dead.

* Vulgar or profane act

Game-controlled avatars cannot use profane, racist, or discriminatory language, nor can they make obscene gestures.

* Use of controlled substances

An avatar is not allowed to hold, be seen around or partake in any controlled substances or paraphernalia including, but not limited to, alcohol, tobacco and drugs

* Replace Avatar features

The features of an avatar cannot be hidden or in obscured and cannot be replaced with alternative items. Items such as, but not limited to, masks, hats and alternative clothing, are not allowed

* Avatars proportions are not modified

The proportions of an Avatar cannot be modified form their original settings. An Avatar can be resized as long as the proportions don?t change

Synd, där hade de kunnat ha ett stort övertag över Nintendo. Vem vill inte lemlästa fula online-avatarer med motorsåg?
