Our Xbox 360 is very much our home consoles that the family uses for gaming, whether that be Kinect games or more traditional core games. We primarily utilise just 1 Xbox Live Gold account, so the kids can play online, as can I, at different times. What I am calling for here as the individual owner of the account and bill payer, is better protection on purchases.
Whether that be accidentally downloading the next chapter for Sesame Street Kinect due to it poorly being implemented as an existing level as opposed to a usual download/store screen. Or, frankly just to stop other family member being tempted to download map packs utilizing my Microsoft points or linked payment method.
Not all of us can afford, nor want to pay for Gold for each of our children, and I am more than happy for them to play online using my own Gold account, what I am not happy for though, is for them to be able to easily spend my money on Xbox Live.
I am calling for an option to lock-out purchasing on Xbox Live. Take for example you buy something from Amazon on your card, you typically have to put in the security numbers on your card. For Xbox Live I would like to see one of two things, option 1, have purchases require the user to enter a password via. controller, much like you can do for siging in - I would prefer this method, for example, LT,LT,LT,LT might be the button presses as my password, or utilize the account holders Live id password, I prefer the first method though.
