I understand the XBox; I even understand the Kinect (though fuck knows what magic fairies live inside it to make it work so brilliantly, I dunno...)
And DS1 tells me there is something called XBox Live which he 'needs'. Or he will 'die' apparently.
Now. I'm assuming - what - this allows him to play stuff with other people who he doesn't know? Is this true with ALL XBox games, or only the ones he is NOT ALLOWED to play (COD, Halo etc... ) because he is only 11.
I feel a leeetle bit weird letting my son play with random strangers - presumably they don't chat? Or get to know stuff about you? Is it completely secure and parent-friendly?
And what advantages does it have?
Are there other things that people use it for: I have seen something called DLC but have no idea what this means...
Thanks, from a stooooopid mum who needs to know more.
