Xbox 360 to have parental control for games

Posted on Friday, July 22 2005 @ 17:37 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Xbox 360 console will include a parental control feature to lock kids out of certain games based on age restrictions, Engadget reports.

It will be a very easy system as parents will only need to type in the age of their kids. The Xbox 360 then reads out data from game discs and locks out the children if they aren't old enough to play certain games.

The restrictions will be based on local rating systems in each country. More info Engadget
