Xbox 360 - Facebook, Twitter and Last FM, The Pathetic Catch

Postby SonicBoom » 17 Nov 2009, 19:30

...you have to be 18 to use these features

to be quite honest, Microsoft are taking the Mick, I use all of these on my OWN laptop.

I'm 17 so My 360 is child locked, there isnt even a Parental Option to allow these Apps.

Thoughts?

Pathetic if you ask me, was looking forward to using last fm aswell

Wait, what?

My 360 has no locks on it.

Does this mean i can access all these new features?
400x100 is a ridiculously small signature size, i'm not even going to bother making a new one.

Your 17. Aren't you basically at the age you can ask your parents to unlock your 360?

They're only doing it to keep you safe.

Also, you're an idiot for not putting your account to 18

Yup, which is exactly why I said gold members only.

M$ will never do a 360 browser cos then they couldn't do this stupid branded crap.

Why didn't you just lie about your age when you joined up? I'm using all of these without any restrictions and I'm enjoying them a lot to be honest.

They've already said that they're going to allow parents to pick which apps you can use in the near future.

yet another reason why I hate my 360.

but if I shift a meter to the right to my PC, I can do all those things without any stupid non-logical age restriction

Facebook and Twitter are lame on it anyway. Especially since I use my laptop to bridge it anyway.

last.fm will be pretty good for some situations. Shame you can't play it during games though.

Also, age restrictions? Oh well.
Once more, with feeling.
