so my 8 year old asks me to run some network cable up to his video game room . thats right a room dedicated to video gaming, 32 inch sanyo , ps2 , x box and game cube with full surround.any way he wants to play star wars battlefront online so i run the cable for him . he hooks it up, configures it, and online he goes . he finds a game to join and is having the time of his life when a chat message appears and you gussed it. someone uses some pretty raw language in the chat message . anyone know if the chat function can be turned off so he can just play and not recieve any messages? i was gonna get him the headset so he could join a socom and ranbow six game , but i don't think i will. he's a pretty smart 8 year old and mature for his age but i can only imagine the talk through the headset , anyway any help would be appreciated.
