As a adult myself, can take care of myself but children is different. Your network is all over the news, but the story isn't PSN is the place to play games this summer; Instead it's "An innocent game of Fifa has gone awry, Billy was working on his corner kick when he received messages from "Sally"" The Xbox One and PS4 have parental controls, hell I'm pretty positive the 360 had them too.With the family controls it gets even more granular, setting hours they can play, who they can speak to etc etc.The person claims to be an american college girl, but is mostly probably a fat loser with fat stains on all over his shirt Had one on psn contact me a few weeks back... Someone hits me up, says "hi", I ask who is this and they tell me that they're bored and just want to chat. first article I have ever read on N4G where I am struggling to see a single dislike to any of the comments! I used to play with a big You Tube streamer all the time so I thought it was a fan that recognized me the first time.
This needs to get approved so the message to stay away from this scam gets out to gamers I got message too.
I wrote so cringy stuff because I knew that this is very sketchy.
They claim they will give you a private peep show for free but you have to go to a certain web site and enter your credit card info.
Anyone who does this is clearly going to have some sort of credit card fraud happen so I would advise to stay far away from this.
but it's obvious that many don't, and while that's bad PR for any company, it doesn't mean they can't be active in actually being a solution to the problem, instead of ignoring it or actively keeping others away from such things because they have to protect the children. A friend of mine kept on messaging and ended up on one of those cam sites where they asked for his card details.
@ Nintendew Kids use all sorts of other social services like Facebook, Steam, PSN, XBL, Instagram etc and you don't see half the dumbass functionality that you do on Nintendo's service Also Nintendo's console is no more a family system than Play Station and Xbox, so that is not a legitimate excuse for why they can continue to put out a lackluster service. She said she's going through a list looking for people to chat to as she's bored. Edit: I noticed some of them go through the communities list where they find you and so pretend having similar interests I got one of these a few weeks ago.Except no one uses them and if something were to get weird with a kid in say Minecraft the story doesn't change regardless of whether parental controls were there.When so much of Nintendos bottom line relies on younger kids, I'm not going to disparage them for taking the super safe route.From what games you like playing, to "do you want a free pass to watch me practice my show"... All I needed was my credit card to verify my age.... @Weeb, If you're going to be an absentee parent that's on you and I feel sorry for your kids.
