In theory that's a good idea but  who's to say someone won't lie about their age ?

Bad idea thats just like asking for more spaces like x7 and their restrctions. The younger players already have it rough. I won't ever be able to get in the VIP club x7 because of my age. Ps+ has to be 18, that's so lame. I even got rejected by the free 7days code given by the E3 promo. Anyways by the time ill be allowed I don't know if Home will exist.

Ps plus isnt the only way into x7 if you own mansion parts or certain clothing items you can get in regardless of your age.

This, old bean, is a poor idea! 

 

Age is not a real indicator of maturity! And how, in practice, could this be executed? Kids lie about their age all the time! They play GTA and you think you could just place an age gate and expect them to be honest and not find a way to get around it?

 

It becomes an unexecutable and unnecessary barrier because of the impracticality of an age gate and the maturity of humans being based in individual minds and not their age!

Old and young can fake their ages. Thus, whatever you're trying to avoid will still happen... A young person knows how to fake their age. They've been doing it for decades.

 

Also, an older person can fake their age. Who knows how long they've been doing it?

 

SCEA does have age restrictions on certain content in Home. But people do find ways a round it. 

 

 

 

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

This idea has been talked about a lot in the past.  Sony at one point even said that they where going to do just that.  But like many other things Sony has said it never came to be.  The way I see it a age is just something way to easy to fake.  I know 5 year olds that know how to beat the system when it comes to an age check.
