Video game labeling bill introduced in Congress, ESA calls it unconstitutional

XMNR: Congressman Jim Matheson (D-Utah) introduced a bill to the United States Congress Tuesday that would put federal penalties behind the existing voluntary ESRB labeling system and "prohibit the sales and rentals of adult-rated video games to minors." The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) responded to the legislation Thursday by calling the legislation unconstitutional and pointing to statistics showing that the games industry performs better than any other entertainment medium when it comes to selling mature games to kids.
