Too Young for Online Gaming

My son turned 9 today and we got him Xbox Live Gold.

When we try and play EA SPORTS FIFA 2011 it says he is too young to play online.

 

I have changed his settings so that he is an adult and also left it four hours before trying. Is there anything else I am missing?

 

Thanks in advance.

EA have an age restriction for online play, so you need an adult account to access their titles online.

Did this solve your problem?

To clarify a little, for the EA sports titles and games that are not m rated, you have to be 13 in order to play online. For m rated games you have to be 18. There are no settings you can change to fix that.

Corporate parenting?  Really?  I threw down the $60 for Battlefield 3 as a gift for my son.  Pretty disappointing to find out he can't play online.  I know the content of the game and I know what sort of shenanigans he will encounter in online gaming.  As his mother, it's my right to decide if he's mature enough to handle these things. This is the last EA game we buy, ever.

That is an issue/greivence you would need to address to EA. It is your right to decide what your son can play. However  EA has every right to dictate who uses their service.
