Jeff said that when his son Matthew – who is now 11 – turned eight, he received an X-box 360 as his present.
“We did a lot of research, researching games, to see what kind were suitable for his age, and we got him a game called Minecraft, which was about building. It is a great game, so we got him that,” Jeff told the Herald.
His son’s birthday was in November, and then at Christmas, he asked if he could have X-Box Live, to enable him to talk to his friends while playing.
“We thought it was just his friends. So I put a piece of paper beside the TV and I said write down all your friends’ names and all the ‘handles’ – the name codes – they have. He wrote down six or seven of them,” said Jeff.
The dad-of-three looked over the names to be satisfied he recognised them.
