Gaming Console Advice

Five things parents should consider when buying games consoles:
  • Age appropriateness: some games consoles have a greater number of games suitable for younger children - Nintendo, 3DS and Wii U
  • Online purchases: prevent children from accidentally buying a game or spending money through in-game purchasing
  • Multiplayer networks: use parental controls settings to avoid children playing against people they don't know
  • Parental controls: set up parent controls straight away to ensure your child doesn't access inappropriate content
  • Standby mode: turn devices off so that they do not remain connected to the internet and download content when they are not in use
