Microsoft looking to simplify Xbox One parental controls


Microsoft has said that Xbox One will feature parental controls, although it's planning to simplify them more in order to help parents understand how to use them a bit better.


Speaking with Polygon, Microsoft's corporate vice president of interactive entertainment business Ben Kilgore, "How do we simplify it a bit. We have a lot of power that's hard for a lot of people to understand.

"Part of the goal is how do we simplify it and hit on the few things that are really what parents are looking for to keep them in charge. That part of the plan is still evolving, so I don't have any specific details".

"One of our goals, over time, our aspirational goal is, 'How do we make sure all Microsoft products share the same family settings?'

"So you know that, once you've configured it that you don't want your son to watch R-rated movies, it doesn't matter if he's on a Windows slate, Windows phone or the TV. His account just knows those things. So those are, like, we're trying to drive a really unified story across all of our products".

Universal parental controls for Microsoft products. Does this sound like a good idea to you?
