I have had the same problem playing xbox live and psp. People as young as 8 using the same terms and words. Unfortunately after contacting Microsoft tech support and Sony both have stated that "the freedom of speech has no restriction on they're platforms, we as a company sell the product, we do not moderate it".
I know you're not supposd to take the content in chat seriously but when it becomes this big, at this level, I can't see what good live chat is in a game. It just makes people more aggressive and offended, some people I know have actually gone to bigger lengths to get revenge and hack those who've made comments or beat them in a game.
I choose not to be a part of this problem, and since the companies who provide the service obviosly wont adress it as an issue I simply dont plaly psp online anymore, and mute all my online xbox games. Some people enjoy the interaction but I personally cant stand it.
