Usually when screaming at your console of choice the worst that can happen in your neighbor calling the cops, your girlfriend/boyfriend leaving or being banned from certain online gaming activities. But now users are reporting it’s actually affecting their gameplay.
Players able to not throw their controllers across the room are reporting that Xbox One and Kinect are listening and handing out technical fouls in NBA 2K14. The fan above uploaded this NSFW video of receiving a technical foul during single-player mode for screaming at his Xbox One.
