As per the recent bbc article above, another parent has been caught out by the issues of FUT Packs and children purchasing them without permission. It doesn't effect too many people but its still a problem currently.
EA refusing to comment once again is troubling. I understand their defence noting the parent should have proper protections in place for payments from the console, however I don't agree with it.
The game age cert is released as a 3+, meaning any child can pick up the game and play. However, if you have to put protections in place for young children so they cannot purchase Fifa points, surely this overrides the 3+ certificate.
Extreme example here but if someone purchased a dvd which was PG rated, but to watch the film on a PG rated version, the person in question had to select the correct format on the menu, otherwise the dvd would start playing on a 15 rating. The game rating isn't EA's fault mind you, but just screams of hypocrisy.
