My son has created an online ea account to play football on his xbox 360. he can't play because it is telling him he is to young. can i create another account..

Yes, you should be able to create a new XBox Live account for your son.

When you create a new XBox Live account, make sure to edit the date of birth so it is at least 18 years old. This way any and all restrictions on his online gaming experience will be nullified.

Hope that helps!

I can not connect fifa 11 online on my xbox 360, the code i was given on the back of the game package says it is invalid also get a meesage saying sorry you are to young to play this game, please help

If you are being told the code you were given was invalid it means that someone has used the code already, most likely you bought the product used. the message that says your are to young to play this game is caused by the age you have associated with your Xbox live account.

Hi my son can't get on xbox live with fifa 10

unfortunately, after doing some research, i have determined that unless the problem is that you don't have xbox live gold, in which case you wouldn't be able to play online period, your son needs to make a new gamer profile. It should work afterwards. I need more details as to exactly what happens before i give you a definitive answer, though.

Fifa o9 online

Unfortunately you have to be over 16 to play EA games online. Only way to fix this would be set up a new Xbox profile with an older age

I have just returned from holiday and my xbox has gone onto family settings and it is saying i am too young to play Fifa

This fifa problem has come up alot......

  1. From the XBOX dashboard screen, go to settings and then parental control.
  2. When prompted for the password, perform the following sequence using the XBOX controller: X, Y, Left Trigger, X.
  3. Enter in a new password, or disable parental control entirely.
Do that to make a new password or unlock family settings and change them.

If you cannot edit your settings with that new password, ask your parents for their email/password for the XBOX LIVE PARENTAL account.

From there you should allow all types of games, (no age blocks)

Good luck!

Cant play two players on fifa 09

Freezing playing offline two players or even one player.

First I thought the problem was related to the fifa09 DVD, and therefore I got a new one. That didn’t help. Then I got at new PSP3, and it didn’t make a difference. However, I found the solution:

Unfortunately I did two things at the same, so it’s not possible to say, what made the difference.

1. Dot not choose your local language (in my case Danish), but chose English (the next time you start fifa09 it can run with your local language)

2. Delete your saved data concerning fifa09
