* 360 gets Kiddie Timer

Xbox/Xbox Games
Parents worried that their kid plays too much Xbox360 may have a new weapon - the next set of updates includes parental controls that can even shut off the kid's account after a certain amount of time played per day.

Microsoft says that more than 90 percent of parents placed restrictions on gaming, and over half the parents surveyed said they would use a timer if it was available. In conjunction with the new feature, the Redmond company is joining with the National PTA to encourage parents to talk with their kids about "screen time."
Number of parents who know how to successfully lock down the 360 console so their kid doesn't just set up a new account: perhaps 1 in 20.
