Game consoles to let parents control access

PlayStation 3 is the latest to restrict children's access to violent video games

Sony will place parental controls on its forthcoming PlayStation 3, according to the Entertainment Software Association. That will mean all three major video-game console makers are promising parents help in restricting children's access to violent video games.

Microsoft has parental controls in its new Xbox 360, which debuted last week. It also offers parental controls on the company's Xbox Live online gaming service, limiting whom their children can interact with.

Earlier this month, Nintendo announced similar plans for its next-generation machine, Revolution, due 2006.
