Do kids use PSP and DS gaming devices to surf the net?

SUREN on May 15, 2009

While Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS are primarily used as portable gaming consoles, they can also be connected to the internet through a wireless broadband connection. The main intent behind this is to download games off the web and compete with other players remotely.

Are these browsers very popular among kids who are busy playing games? The answer surprisingly is yes. With readily available Wifi networks, kids accidentally access inappropriate content/messaging and become easy targets to cyber predators through these gaming consoles. There are many forums where concerned parents share information on internet safety and consumer advocacy groups raise concerns about unsupervised internet access to kids using such devices.

However, both PSP and DS come with parental controls to block or control internet access. In addition, parents should also take time to have a dialogue with their kids about internet safety and sharing personal information since kids as young as 7 years old are attracted to these gaming devices.
