Microsoft has confirmed that the company is working on a system for Xbox One that helps segregate the trouble-makers on Xbox Live from the fair-players.

The new system will place reputation on players, therefore pooling the “bad” players together, then hopefully allowing for more sportsmanlike gaming for the rest of the users.

“There are industry best practices we’ve looked at, about giving kudos and props to people who behave well, explained Microsoft’s senior product manager Mike Lavin.

“We’ve learned from everything we’ve seen, and we’re trying to take it to the next level. So there’ll be very good things that happen to people that just play their games and are good participants. And you’ll start to see some effects if you continue to play bad or, or harass other people en masse. You’ll probably end up starting to play more with other people that are more similar to you.”

Lavin also assured gamers that there is no way to shortcut the system, such as players who team up against you to hurt your reputation.

Lavin also explained that examples of positive behaviour might include engaging with Microsoft’s community programmes, such as Xbox Live Rewards.

“Reputation is just like Achievements – you want your Reputation score as high as you can get it. There may even be opportunities where if you participate in some of our community programmes, your reputation can even get higher.”
