I suggest you make it much more clear on this page that EA have set up this game so you must be 13 (with a sub account) or 18 (w, 22 Aug. 2014
Although the age rating says "7", you can't play this game without a PSN account linked to an Origin account. The minimum age for a PSN account is 18, but parents/guardians can set up sub accounts for from age 7. Unfortunately, you have to be 13 to have an origin account, so children between the advertised minimum age of 7 and 13 are left with the options of:
---waiting until they're 13 to play this game with their friends under their own IDs (try explaining that to a 7 year old)
---playing it as their parents IDs
---asking their parents to lie about their age when setting up their accounts (breaching all sorts of Terms of Service)
EA are wholly to blame for this debacle (again - SimCity? Dungeon Keeper? etc.), but to Amazon: I suggest you make it much more clear on this page that EA have set up this game so you must be 13 (with a sub account) or 18 (with a full PSN account) to play this game to prevent more disappointment when kids receive their birthday presents.
