    Default US bill attempts to make video game age ratings legally binding (No COD for 13Y/O)


    A new bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would make ESRB ratings legally binding.

    Utah's Democratic representative Jim Matheson has introduced the bill known as H.R. 287, which seeks to "require ratings label on video games and to prohibit the sales and rentals of adult-rated video games to minors."

    According to the bill, any person who distributes an unlabeled game or sales an adult-rated game to a minor is subject to a fine "of not more than $5,000 per violation."

    As of now, ESRB ratings are the standard and somewhat enforced at most chain shops, but there's no legal precedent to do so, just as it is with adult-rated movies and music in the US.

    Source/Read More:

    I personally hope this passes. The number of pre-puberscent 'yer mum' kids will be significantly reduced.
    Also the COD sales will be reduced by 80% and hopefully Activison dies so we can get proper Spyro and Crash Bandicoot games.
    I understand one's parents could buy them the game but if the bill gets accepted it may enforce age verification hopefully as strict as Spain's "console ownership" law in which the console owner must be over the PEGI limit.

    I don't particularly care what the outcome is but i certainly dont agree, and not because of call of duty.

    Assassins creed, twisted metal, and most of all def jam (if another is released)

    What's the point of PEGI (or ESRB in your case) ratings then?

    If they're not (strictly) enforced, the there's no point in having them. Publishers are basically wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars just to get their games rated which really has no effect in the end.

    This may signal some developers to reduce the gore and violence in games but still this needs to be passed.

    Being 31 I dont give a shit I am good.I think it is great, on PS3 I can't stand it when you heard a sqeaker start singing in the fucking lobby, or blasting music. I like to see how they plan on enforcing this though.
