Yeah, it's a great thing to have provided the parents know how to use it.

I completely agree. This is more of an evasived action against law suits on Sony's part. Read this, it's old but an intresting article, and it's somewhat intriguing to us gamers because of what you stated.

Sorery for double post, but if you can't trust your kid(s) (this isn't directed towards anyone, just banter) to be on a computer, you need to hgave a serious talk with them because kids these days will find out that you have a restriction, and chances are if you are choosing to block your children from the full experience of anything that will only give you what you ask of it, (this includes console, computers, and toys alike) because they are doing something bad, or knowingly exposing themselves to something not appropriate, they shouldn't have it. If it's a family computer, buy a darn firewall, you shouldn't be looking at pornographic materials or anything too violent if you have kids to raise anyways. The only time you'd need a restriction is if it was a public computer (excluding family use), and once again, you can buy a firewall for that. The restrictions on windows won't allow you to use google images at my school, yet I could go to google and type in images on the search, and follow a direct link right to the images, and even had the ability to turn off safe search. I can do that, yet I can't right-click ANYTHING.

amen to that,

My parents know its just a game, and trust me on my own computer and xbox.
It's all a matter of trust, If your parents can trust you to not do bad things, then this is unneccessary.

Yeah, I'm 14 and I've been playin M games since I was 10.
Likewise, its not like parents in Britain and Canada don't buy their kids games. But it doesn't matter because who said that's so wrong. They require the 18 age restriction for buying them not because of content, but because of the fact that they want the parents to decide if it's appropriate. But it's not like you can't get them anyway (i pay debit to amazon for M games if i want them, but my parents don't care anyway)

May God bless you if you read that whole thing

I'm sure this will stop the next wave of crazy zombie serial killers.

Notice my scarasm.

Frankly IDC when I see partenal controls like a program or somthing I just turn them off. I have been researching ISPs in germany one is called Bunt, well parental controls don't let me get there. Cna't wait till I get my own machine back.
