This feature heightens the potential for online child luring, warns Signy Arnason, director of Cybertip.ca, because children are speaking with strangers who could pose as children, but actually be adults.

That is why Ottawa lawyer Mark Hecht said video game companies should monitor online chats.
"The technology is such that you don't actually have to have people viewing all these chats, but that you create the software that would flag conversations which could be questionable," said Hecht, who is also a spokesman for Beyond Borders, an agency that looks to protect children from sexual exploitation "Then someone could jump in, monitor and if need be, pull the plug on it." The Entertainment Software Assocation of Canada, which is responsible for video gaming north of the border, did not directly respond to the suggestion of monitoring online conversations.
