CAUTION: Child Gamertag w/ Battlefield 4

My son saved up $60 for a preorder of BF4 for Xbox One. Because his Xbox live Gamertag was a child account (<17 yrs old) he was not able to set up an EA Origin account required for online play. Now, he cannot play BF4 locally or online, nor BF3 on the Xbox 360.

I went to and did the online chat. I spoke with an EA help rep. Bottom line: I was told they won't budge on the age requirement due to the ERSB rating--the only thing my son can do is play through a different Gamertag.

Not happy...

Yeah, my kids can't play online on BF4 as well, but they can play campaign. I even tried logging them in with my Origin account to no avail. So I guess they won't be playing BF4 online at all.
