After Home briefly lost voice chat a little while ago, people were probably wondering how they’re supposed to chat. And no, keyboard doesn’t count, because Sony has instituted a ridiculous word filter that cuts off anything even remotely offensive. How bad is it? “Hello” is considered to be the devil’s work because it contains “hell.”
It’s not terribly far off from the filter used in Hot Shots Golf on the PS3, which cuts off any tiny word considered to be “off color.” It’s something that needs fixed, along with a lot of things in Home (like adding unlimited bowling lanes and arcade machines).
