The dark side of Xbox Live

Torrents of abuse caught on camera during Halo 3

Anyone who's taken a trip to Xbox Live will have come across it. And it's not just seen in Halo 3. Even in the most placid of game genres suffer from it. Yep, we're taking about potty mouths hurling homophobic insults at anyone they come across.

Going under the Gamertag of xxxGayBoyxxx the footage was recorded over 11 nights of Halo 3 action. The author says the responses were unprovoked and says that not everything in the clip was said with hate.

Kotaku sums it up quite well: "And by Xbox Live, I really mean 'the internet', the hateful underbelly outlet of many a lonely existence." You can see the clip here.

Sound should be kept low.
