Parental controls on the Xbox

The head of Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox division said Thursday that the Xbox would be the first console to include a parental control that can restrict children’s access to violent or inappropriate content.

A simple setup procedure will let parents determine what level of violent games they want their kids to be playing, based on a standard ratings system. The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board rates most video games for content.

``We’re big supporters of the creative concept on a console and that people can have a broad range of content, but we also believe that parents should have the right tools to be able to keep track of and manage what their kids are playing,’’ said Robbie Bach, Microsoft’s chief Xbox officer.

Microsoft is marketing its system at 15- to 25-year-old ``hard-core gamers’’ - those who will be wowed by realistic graphics and are old enough to deal with violent content. Bach said some of Xbox’s games will be violent enough to warrant a ``mature’’ rating.
