comparison to some of the others!
We walked around all day looking at the new games being launched by all of the different developers although at one point we were stopped from wandering into one area because my girls were under 18. I was pleased that this particular company was careful to keep children away because of the game's violent content but it has to be said that some others were not as vigilant. In one of the main halls we found ourselves in the company of several semi-naked women advertising various online games, and if I tell you that one woman was only wearing body paint and a smile then you catch my drift.
It was a relief to make our way back to the Xbox area, where I was confident that my girls wouldn't be exposed to any adult content and could play in safety. I suppose it's the same in life as it is online, children can accidentally find themselves in the wrong place. Keeping safe online can be an unknown area for some parents and that's where we can sometimes need a bit of help.
And that's something Xbox are very keen on and their Play Smart Play Safe website comes in very handy. That's where you can find out more about the family settings and tips for teenagers on how to stay safe.
We had the most amazing time at Gamescom, and we'd like to say a huge thank you to Paul Fox from Xbox for making the trip possible, and the fabulous Kerry Jean Lister from Digital Outlook for being professional, friendly and well, just ace. Thanks guys.
