Revolutionized Parental Control

Revolutionized Parental Control Revolutionized Parental Control

This may be the most unlikely news but Nintendo is developing a parental control system for the Revolution, in order to allow parents to lock-out their kids from unsuitable material. Just in case Zelda turns up for a game in hot-pants and without a top.

By using a password-controlled setting, adults can decide what flexibility they'll allow younger players to have in playing video games rated by the ESRB. The system also ensures dedicated adult gamers can opt to play without limitations.

How does it work? The actual game software will contain a code indicating the rating, which will activate the control system to remain locked or unlocked. The feature will be included in every Revolution worldwide.

Nintendo's next console will usher in a new era of video gaming. It will feature a controller designed to be used with either one hand or two, a first in the video game industry. The position and motion of the controller itself dictates the action on the television screen. A second, plug-in expansion gives hard-core gamers additional control for more in-depth game play.

Revolution will play both new game discs, as well as Nintendo GameCube discs. It also will have access to 20 years of fan-favorite games, including those from the Nintendo 64, Super NES and NES eras.
