Nintendo 3DS Parental Controls Revealed

King Nintendo Fanboy: Today at Nintendo’s 3DS media event I had the chance to skim through all of the Parental Controls the new handheld has to offer. (Nintendo DS)

LoL - master code in case they lock themselves out. GG parents.

Seriously does any parent actually use the parental controls on any devices these days? I see parents on line for midnight launches for GTA4 to buy their spoiled kids a game they shouldn't be playing.

Kids these days are spoiled.

many parents i've seen dont even know how to navigate in consoles menu .

Not that they'd bother searching for the option anyway and turning it on .

No instead they'll be complaining about the god awful mature content of games .

nintendo and the others are only covering their behind legally anyway , by adding the option

I hope Nintendo actually calls the master key, a "Super Unlock Key"

Well, I think they need to advertise this a bit more to be honest...

no 3D pron for kids?? :(

Ironically, the big thing that I would want would be to lock out the 3D effect in games, because I don't want my kids' vision screwed up. I'm fine with it for pictures they take with the built-in camera, etc.

The 3DS has a lot of appeal over the DSi, for other reasons, but the 3D actually is a downside, IMO.

??? You can just remove the 3d screen . It's one of the three first thing they said about the console , so i dont see how is there any downside here .

You can't lock out the 3D effect. You can turn it off, but a child can simply turn it back on.

What I want is a parental lockout for the 3D effect in games, so the physical slider has no effect whatsoever.
