Use Family Settings to control access to content
If you use Family Settings to control the content that is viewed on your Xbox 360 console, the GameSpot app will follow those settings. For example, if you use parental controls to restrict access to some kinds of videos, those programs will be marked with a “restricted” icon in the GameSpot app. To play a restricted item, an adult must enter the Family Settings pass code.
For more information about how to restrict access to Xbox Live content by using Family Settings, see Set parental controls for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live.
