I would print out the e-mail/receipt, frame it, wrap it and give it to him for Christmas.

It isn't your fault, he's 11 years old and he should know better than to think there would be a glitch to get free games by simply pressing Buy.

shame on the parents for letting an 11 yr old play on the ps3 with no supervision. cmon, the kid is 11..he doesnt need the ps3 or video games, let alone unsupervised adult account game play.

 

this is 100% the parents fault, so to come here and not only whine about it, but to suggest to others to not let their children play the ps3 unsupervised is rather MOOT because good parents would/should already know this 

Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

Actually I think it's the fault of the kid as well as the fault of Sony.  I've nearly accidently bought stuff in the past stopping just for a second to read what was going on.  

 

Here's the main problem that I see: 

 

1. The highlighter is almost ALWAYS on the "Buy Now/Purchase" thing when it shouldn't be.  I want to examine stuff and see more indepth stuff, but due to lag or some such other problems it has a chance to go past that to the "Buy" option.  Move the highlight thing down and force people to press up on the D-Pad.  The little bit of extra muscle usage won't hurt people one bit.  

 

2. Make it easy to remove CC information so that it isn't stored in the database.  Alot of times i'm seeing Go to page A and then proceed through steps B-J before you get the option to attempt to remove your CC information.

He's 11, not 5. I don't know what maturity/intelligence you associate with each age but an 11 year old should know better.

 

When he selects "BUY IT NOW", he should realize he'll be paying for it somehow.

Expensive lesson to learn.  Turn on the option for password verification for purchases people.

Sounds like your troubles wont end there if he doesnt know the difference between free and not free, I say you shouldnt let him play video games AT ALL until he can make that connection.

 

Oh and yeah...password protect your account and make the child his own profile seperate from yours.

You should set a password lock that way he cant buy anything if he doesn't know the password.
