This Ugly Device Will Automatically Switch Your Consoles Off

Once was a day parents had to do their jobs, and manually enforce the amount of time a kid spent playing on a console. Now, all they need is the GameDr. ..... (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Oh boy, times like this I'm glad this wasn't around as I was growing up; and glad now that I am old enough to be able to monitor my own amount of play time.

"I was a nice kid, but if something like that had killed my Final Fantasy VII game, there would have been blood."

You and me both...would have hated to get far in an RPG hear the 10-minute mark and scramble to try and find a save point..

This must be one horrible invention for gamers xD, I mean the idea behind it...works you know...But when parents need this, its just sad.

Making kids understand why they shouldn't play so much also brings dicipline and value to the table.
But by hearing it from the parents, not a lame switch off.

And like you said, i would be frustrated if i never reached a save point...
I would never do this to youngsters

My bro used to lie to my dad though and stay up playing the games till like 3 in the morning saying he needed to find a save point. Even in games where you can save on the world map. Wow that's a long time ago now.

Hehe, I would kill someone if they deleted one of my files too but I've done it to myself by mistake several times.
