yes there is but MAYBE this person is now of age and has a legitimate reason to change it? I don't mean to imply that this is the case, but there is no harm in asking and your answer isn't contributing much to the query other than what we all already know.

Easiest way it go onto hotmail. Log in. Go to account options (cant rember where) and there is an option for age in it. Then you can play all the game you want if you make your age over 18 ;)

No, there is no way i am in your same situation. The person who said above to change your windows live id birthday will not allow you to then download m trailers and demos. I know its a stupid rule since at the age of 17 you can buy the games. But once you do turn 18 it will allow you to take control of your account but not untill then sorry. I looked this all up a couple months back and called mircosoft.

You have to be 18 years old and set a new credit card on the account, then you get total access.

I don't like how I can't download M rated games even though I can legally buy them in a store. Apparently it gives you the option to promote your account when you hit 18...just three more months for me!:D

How to change your age? It's the easiest thing ever!! To get older, simply wait... =) To get younger is more complicated... I can sell you a fountain of youth map, or you can go to a plastic surgeon :p

I do find it annoying since I am 17 but I can't get demo's or videos of M rated or NR rated games. But I can wait.

^This. As for the map to the fountain of youth, we are selling them at the bargain price of 100 clams at the moment; however, legally I have to disclose that no one has ever found the fountain and the maps are pretty much a scam. Now, how many would you like? Wait, I forgot you are trying to change your age.... Good Luck!

Yes, the reason is the FCC is afraid stupid kids without any common sense will go around spending all of their parents money and killing other people because of the "violent images" on some games. There's no reason that a 17 year old with their own bank account shouldn't be allowed to buy NETFLIX with their own money. Maybe instead of giving us all life lessons, you could just give an intelligent answer, unless that's too hard for you.

You can't, you probably should've thought of that before registering. :P

Besides, wait for the time to go by, it goes by fast like how 2010 is going. We're like at the end of the year already. Why not buy the mature stuff legally at a retailer?

There is no way without getting another GT/account. It tracks your age so that when you do turn 18 you can promote the account to adult but that is it. I am sure a lot of ppl made this mistake when they created the account because they did not bother putting in their real birthday and only picked the top dates. I tried every angle to change a nephews and no luck. EA is the worst for this because you can't play online for some of their games and they use Lives age stats to restrict you. So you can buy Battlefield 1943 but you can't play it!

I don't think there is a way to change age, so it looks like your going to have to wait those few months.

You can't, luckily, I have always been a sneaky one, and set all my live accounts to a couple of years older when I made them just in case.

Then I got an xbox and it turned out I made the right choice

I don't have any prob with age restrictions as long as the option is there for the parents consent. Business is just following what the ppl want so you can't please all the ppl all the time. I let my 6 yr old play Black ops with me but not by himself. He is a good kid and is pretty good so as long as he knows what is real and what is game then I am fine with it.
