Mom upset by porn sites on game systems


UPI News Service, 01/11/2007 

A San Antonio mother says she was shocked to discover that pornographers have made their Web sites compatible with PlayStation 3 and Wii video game consoles.

The game systems, which include WiFi technology to allow players to connect to other gamers online, can be used to browse the Internet, and that includes pornographic sites, KENS-TV, San Antonio, reported Thursday.

"(Children are) innocent and we want to try and keep them that way," Lauren Schroeder said. "It's very upsetting that something this popular, a kid's game, can go that direction so quickly.

"And that's why it's so important to read into it and, you know, do a lot of information, do a lot of research and background checking before you invest in it," Schroeder said. "It's not the age we're, you know, going to approach that and we need to keep them protected from people like that who are trying to invade a fun game like the Wii."

Schroeder said the console includes parental controls that allow her to block some content, but she and other parents have called for the manufactures of the systems to include more filters and protections.
