According to the Sony chiefs, PlayStation 3's Home service could contain an 18+ area for trailers and now, Casinos.
"For instance, a casino or even somewhere you can go and see 18-rated trailers for games," Peter Edward, Director of the PlayStation Home Platform Group, said during an interview with ThreeSpeech. "That isn't anything particularly sinister, but obviously, you’d have to prevent 12-year-olds going in there. Obviously, there are other 18-plus areas that you could imagine, but some of those might not come to fruition. But we have the ability to age-protect areas, and I think that’s something that we will inevitably make use of."
With this added feature, 18+ players would be able to watch trailers of games, movies, etc. in the 18+ areas. By controlling age sensetive content, Home will have a better and safer community for all ages.

How are they going to check, anyways?Credit card?It's too bad most sites just ask when you were born.Anybody with a first grade education could figurre that out.

Wonderfully enough, my PS3's PSN account is registered under my dad's name. So many ways to get around it. ^_^

I remember reading not to long ago in a FORUM about HOME "CASINO", you know that spot is going to be jam pack! Can't wait!

Thats a really stupid idea
since they dont block anything in the PS Store, Like The SuperBad Trailer Extended Version Has Alot Of Swearing In It
I think home should be tied into the Parental Controll Settings On The PS3
so it just wont let people access certain areas or something

It's true, but at least Sony isn't then liable for any malicious conduct or practice. It's pretty much just a disclaimer when they ask for the date of birth, it's the end user who breached that "contract".

It almost souds like they might mave some interesting stuff I wounder what he means by "there are other 18-plus areas that you could imagine" because I can imagine some very interesting things like a stip club I really dought it but it would be kind of funny.

Great... Home is gonna be full of kids standing outside strip clubs waiting to catch a peek in or a door open.

The content probably won't be that mature anyway. Its just to say that we can have a casino to gamble in and you obviously have to be over 18 to gamble. 12 year old would be able to go into the Casino or see that Saw 4 trailer but they will never be able to use a credit card to gamble.
