...and he thinks I can fix it for him, including getting the famous Stampy to be his friend He is randomly typing in the name of school friends (eg "Ben" not actual gamertags). Is there any safe way to find children for him to play with? Does anyone have a child in the same situation who might link with him? Normally I'd just say no, but having a bad week and really just want to make him happy!
Oh bless him, what he needs ate his friends "gaming" nicknames. I'd suggest my DS but he's 12, autistic and bossy .
It seems that kids all over the world love the game and DS chats to lots of American children at the moment. I have the Xbox in the living room so I can hear who he is talking to....lots of overexcited kids internationally extolling the greatness of Stampy.
Stampy has a full friends account so cannot add anyone else. ..much to my DS's disappointment.
Thanks guys, all good info. Hadn't thought of it as a risk Bigred though obviously you're right - though of course my ds as much at risk as anyone who replied on the thread! I have no contacts from school, don't do the school run unfortunately so it never seems to happen. Will ask some rl friends in other places instead. Is there any point though if he hasn't a headset, and can't read/write all that well?
Hi brandy does your son have pc or console? My son doesn't get to play multiplayer as I worry about what he might hear! He is also 7 and is begging to play online with somebody! We do have a headset but I think he's more interested in just playing 'side by side' with someone else instead of in his world on his own IYSWIM? We have pc and xbox one and xbox 360 versions so unless you have a ps3 he would love to add your son!
