Forums - Gaming Discussion - According to Microsoft "Fabula Nova Crystallis" is offensive

Since I'm such an FF fanboy, I wanted to put down Fabula Nova Crystallis (the collective name of FF XIII, Versus XIII, and Agito XIII) as my motto for my XBL gamertag, and when I entered it, XBL told me that the motto had "inappropriate words or phrases and must be changed"

don't believe me, try it for yourself

Probably since it is in a foreign language and may be close in spelling to inappropriate words in other languages. (just a guess).

Fabula Nova Crystallis, which means "the new tale of the crystal," in Latin
that is not very offensive. !?!

correct me if I am wrong
stop me if I am bias
I love a good civilised debate (but only if we can learn something).


One of the words is probably used a censor bypass or something in a language.

I am currently sigless.

heh, I think that's a bit of a stretch. It's weird though, I wouldn't see anything there that's even close to a bypass or offensive word

It means new tale of the crystals, is that like against religion?

or maybe its cus they don't want people advertising Versus & Agito on xbox live roflforlforlforlf j/k

All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey
