Watch GameSpot

Go to apps, My Apps, and then GameSpot.

  1. From the app’s Home menu, you can:
    • Watch any of the featured programs displayed in the center of the menu.
    • Select What’s New or What’s Hot to quickly access relevant video content.
    • Select Who’s Watching What to view a filtered list of video content. Select All to see all videos, select Me to see the videos you have previously watched, or select Friends to see the videos your friends have watched.
    • Navigate to Search, Home, Shows, Reviews, Trailers, or Previews for additional video content options.

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.
