As Sony continues to make PlayStation bigger and better, a number of patents have been filed, including a new one that could prevent players from accessing age-restricted content.

Since parental controls were first implemented from a hardware level with the original Xbox, kids have found workarounds to access age-restricted content, but Sony may have a solution.Parental controls were first widely used with the seventh generation of consoles with the Nintendo Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360, each providing their own take on the same concept.
