Xbox 360 live, adult content, identity fraud and minors
So your children provide an Xbox 360. They believe it's great. You think they spend far a lot of time on it and their eyes will go square. Still, it's all harmless fun. . . swag bucks
Right Well, most parents are happy to trust their children with privileges such as the Xbox 360, after almost all, I myself grew up with gaming consoles.
However, once i was gaming, it was solo exploit, not the massive multiplayer social media and instant content downloading era that it is now. Your child could also have an Xbox 360 Reside Gold Subscription, I know I actually do. But I'm an mature, and as such, when i entered my credit card and private information, I was allowed to access the adult content available for download through the Xbox 360 Live Dashboard.
I provide answers about the Xbox 360 Live Subscription and system on a popular questions database, and have noticed an increasing frequency of children that are under 18 (and often under 13) wondering how to reset their account to enable them to make themselves appear older than they are really. Most of these children just end up getting another gaming profile regarding Xbox Live and enter false birth dates, allowing them access to content that I'd rather them not need, that I restrict by refusing to purchase.
So how could this be prevented The honest answer is the fact that I simply don't understand. Considering the fact that many adults know less about Ps3 live than their children (and most children are deceptively cunning) I don't really see a way of barring the information without having silly levels of verification, and creating a heck of lots of work for Xbox Live. gaming lagoon
However, we have to consider the people that are manipulating the system are not going to make a fuss about the truth that they managed to get round it, after almost all, this was their aim to begin with.prizerebel
But as the Ps3 Live network, (which needs a Subscription), expands, as well as develops new uses (films, TV programmes, and even voting happen to be suggested), maybe it's time someone put a little thought into what you can do to prevent unsuitable content being accessible to minors.
