Microsoft is planning on rewarding Xbox One players who demonstrate good social behavior while playing over Xbox Live instead of just punishing bad behavior.

Frank Savage, partner and development lead at Microsoft, said during a GDC talk that it hopes that this system will “actively encourage them to be better.” If your reputation is “soaring because you’re this amazing player that everyone wants to be with,” then you may be rewarded. Savage explained that it’s a way of saying “Thanks for being such a good member of the community, here’s a reward.”

Later Savage informed Polygon that the company is still in the “brainstorming” stages of the system and hasn’t decided what the rewards will be.

Currently players who frequently receive negative feedback on Xbox Live will have their negative score shown on their gamercard and will be grouped with other players in a similar situation while playing online.
