Sony Corporation has reportedly announced parental controls in its forthcoming machine, PlayStation 3, that promise to help parents restrict their children's access to violent video games.

For PlayStation 2, parental controls will extend only to movies and not to games. Sony Corporation remained incommunicado about further details.

Nice idea but it needs to be easily accessible by the parent in order to be successful. Most people are computer illiterate and might not be able to set up a complex parental control system very easily.
