Rumor: Fall Update adds new family timer

According to a post made by JasonX1 over on the forums, he spotted some potential Fall Update facts on the back of his recently purchased Guitar Hero III keychain. More specifically, the keychain text hints at a new family timer and reads ...

I think it's a good idea. I mean, I would spend ALL WEEKEND gaming when I was younger. I suppose some children do game too much and this is a good tool to help combat that.

lol lol parents are going to manage they child time

anyway do you really think parents are going to use these feature

If they are invovled in their children's lives they would.

In the case of parents that use TV/video games as a baby sitter then probably not...which is a shame.

Cause I do and I think this type of thing is great. Using a games console is a privilege not a right. If you're child does all their homework and jobs round the house then there is nothing wrong with rewarding them with time playing games (if they want to that is).

Its not healthy to be stuck playing games hour on hour anyway.

That look at what their kids play?

wageslave4867d ago

Uhm, yes. I feel sorry for you if you actually believe that.

Darkiewonder4867d ago

It was question O.o

I did not claim or say parents do or do not watch what their kids play.
