“We will not carry over any of the 360 reputation scores into the new Xbox One reputation system. The majority of members will start fresh at the “Good” player level,” Whitten said.
Bad eggs, however, will start out at a “Needs Work” level, but will still get a chance to prove a worthy Xbox Live foe.
“We will be working with the Xbox Live enforcement team that has identified a small subset of members that have recently had enforcement actions taken against them and set those members reputation to an initial “Needs Works” level,” Whitten said.
“This will give those members a chance to prove they can participate on Live fairly, and are not automatically placed in the “Avoid Me” classification where things like SmartMatch filtering will affect them.”
And in somewhat related news, Xbox Live members will be able to sign in to his or her account on both an Xbox 360 and an Xbox One, but no more than one of each console at a time says Whitten.
The Xbox One is tentatively set for release sometime in mid-to-late November.
