Parental Controls on Video Game Consoles

I was recently featured on City TV News discussing safe gaming, I made a statement about how choosing a console is important, and it has come out to seem that PS3 lacks parental controls. To be clear, the point was there are many parents who are unfamiliar with what they can do, and parents should be more knowledgeable about videogames and consoles.

All consoles have great parental controls, not just Xbox.  Here is a list of some parental controls.

Do you use parental controls? Which console do you think has the most user friendly parental controls for parents who are not gamers? We’d love to hear from you so that other parents can make well informed decisions.
