Robbie Bach Fronts Safe Gaming Campaign

Microsoft Entertainment and Devices Division president Robbie Bach will be spearheading a family-friendly gaming initiative beginning today.

The campaign, called "Safety is no game. Is your family set?", will launch at the DigitalLife consumer technology conference in New York City this afternoon. The initiative will involve a 20-city bus tour that will offer parents and guardians hands-on education on topics such as ESRB ratings and Xbox 360 Family Settings.

"With success comes responsibility," said Bach. "We are unwavering in our commitment to address the genuine concerns of families on how to keep interactive entertainment safe and fun for our children. In addition to our current Family Settings feature in Xbox 360, we have built in robust but easy-to-use parental controls in Windows Vista. Windows Vista serves as a good example of how we are working to incorporate the Family Settings feature into our products to ensure that parents can decide and set the parameters for their families."

That's a good way to get the 360 to parents as a safe way for their kids to play videogames... good thinking, MS!

Still have my ps3 copies. Bought it at launch and another one when I found it cheap and in perfect condition about 10 years ago. I wouldn’t buy it on Switch but if they made a PS5 version I would. I still have one of my PS3 Fats hooked up so good to go either way.

Id play it again on the switch. I wished my 360 version was bc but this is still a good way to play.

Fallout 3's Reveal Led To Death Threats And Bethesda's First Security Guard

The artist behind Fallout 4’s Deathclaw reveals just how bad things got back when Bethesda took over the series

People are stupid I get it. No one should feel unsafe,

But I think they need to talk about why they cut so many corners during the development process and why none of their games ever look current. And why they think all of this is okay while they charge full price.

As much as Bethesda deserve criticism, that's not really relevant to the reveal of Fallout 3 in 2007.

The default angle Kotaku always go for is to highlight the worst in gaming.

I would’ve focused on the creative.
