Well done! How have you managed this my son would of gone absolutely balistic if I did this. The government recommends an hour at a time for playing these games but they are very addictive and getting them off after an hour is ni-on impossible. My sons are now grown up but I took these things away as a punishment and they were so much more considerate and helpful around the house when not glued to these games. These games are also apart of teenagers social networks so be sure he does not lose friends over this. many children go around each others house to play if news gets out he is not allowed to play this could cause problems. I limited the use to an hour after school and an hour in the evening using a timer on the plug socket and this helped no end. Good luck!
