With video games reaching an all-time record of $17.9 billion in sales for 2007, parents may need assistance in helping their kids use their games in safe and healthy ways. Here are two new resources we just learned about:
Xbox offers family settings where parents can set timers for their kids, control which games they have access to, and require approval before connecting with new people.
WhatTheyPlay.com offers parent reviews of video games, descriptions of content, and images/video from the games themselves. Users can search by the kind of video game system, the game rating, game title, or kind of content.
