is there a utility out there that I can install on my PS3 so that I can set a time limit for my children?
I would like to set that each children has max 1 hour of playing time available per day, then the PS3 will log him off.
Off course if there are warnings 10 minutes before the deadline it would be nice,
as well as if, I, as parent controller, could extend their time with a simple command if I would like to make an exception for them on special occasions.
Thanks for your inputs and suggestions.

Hi & welcome to the Forums.
Depending on the age of your children there are parental controls on the PS3 that you can take advantage of ,but I think these just restrict access to age restricted areas, there are no third party applications available for download to the PS3, Sony restricts this.
All I can suggest is that you make sure that either you, your partner or another 'adult; is around to supervise & restrict the children's activities on the PS3.

He's talking about his children!
even a child shouldnt be limited to that much time jeez.... school for 7 hours, homework for about an hour, there is tv, but if he is restricting his kids from the ps3 he is probably doing the same thing with the tv and pc. i say he should give his kids a break, if they got nothing else to do let them play, dont limit them and just make them sit there stairing at a wall.
