Did you have to post the tweet with the swearing?

Apologies - it was the one with the best picture. I'll swap it for the slightly family-friendlier version, although the image is slightly obscured by his proof-paper.

EDIT Ack I've just noticed he swears on the proof paper too, although it's not as noticeable. I'll switch out the tweet for just the image and link the credit.

Thanks, it's just I don't want 10 year olds thinking that swearing is good.

I'm responsible like that :D .

"This is very surprising", thought I initially upon hearing(reading) this story. But now that I have had time to contemplate I realise that it was rather inevitable, and am sure there will be some accidental PS4's being sent out within the next few days. This sort of thing always happens. The majority of day one adopters will probably be day 0 adopters instead.

Of course, I love a good explicative as much as the next man, but overuse just cheapens a good swear.

I pretty much subscribe to the Stephen Fry school of thinking, basically. (Link, naturally, contains swears.)

I read this earlier on nvg,it would not surprise me if it were a permanent ban,it was clear apparently that he was going to start posting more.I have seen people get banned for playing halo early so this will be not good.If he would of just kept his good fortune to his self he would still be playing now.

There are very few topics on which I don't subscribe to Stephen Fry's school of thinking

I love the courtroom scene on that video, how everyone is shocked at things that sound like swear words, but are happy when he actually does swear.

Its a bit shitty that they banned him just because he was sent the console early.

I think they may just have banned the console from LIVE until launch?
