Questions of the Month for October
Each month we field all manner of different questions on askaboutgames. Some people have intricate queries about particular games while others want to know which console will be best for their family. Here are our picks this month.
Question: How do you save an Xbox 360 game so you do not need to start it all over again?
Most games have save points or an automatic save system that records progress. If you want to check whether progress has been saved, select the Quit option in the menu and you will be prompted if progress is going to be lost — this is usually only since the last check point.
Question: How I can remove the parent control code on Xbox 360? My husband doesn’t remember the code, and now our son is unable to play a game.
To remove this password you need to restore your console’s default factory settings, ensure you have backed up your game saves and other data first either to secondary storage or online via Xbox Live.
Enter the Settings menu, in the Storage settings menu, press “Y” and format the hard drive to initialize setup. You’ll need the console’s serial number, located both in the System Info section and on the console itself. Once the progress bar completes, you will need to set up your Internet connection again and download your Xbox Live profile.
After this, you can set up a new parental control password but be sure to make a note of it.
Question: I have many games for PS3, but we bought PS4. How to be able to play games for PS3 to PS4?
The PS4 doesn’t play PS3 games, although there are some titles that have been re-released on PS4 to take advantage of the improved visuals. Also some games purchased on the PS3 via PSN will offer a reduced price version on PlayStation 4.
Question: Why is Ryse Son of Rome an PEGI 18 certificate?
This game has the PEGI 18 rating for violence and language, “Contains frequent strong, bloody violence”. The GRA expand on this rating by stating that the “Violence contains frequent scenes of hacking and slashing, with much blood and dismemberment shown. Also include violence towards vulnerable and defenceless persons.”
