Microsoft announced today the release of the parental timer, which will let parents decide how long they can play
Yesterday Microsoft presented us with the parental timer for the Xbox 360, which will let parents limit their children’s time playing games or watching movies on the xbox either on a per-day or per-week basis.

When a child approaches the maximum playtime, a notice will appear to warn the player to save the game and once the clock hits zero, the console will turn off automatically.

The Family Timer feature will be available for download via Xbox LIVE in early December.
