Video games to get ads before ratings

Video games and films will soon be allowed to be advertised before classification in an effort to help thwart piracy, the NSW government has announced.

In a bill to be introduced in state parliament today, the NSW Classification Enforcement Act will be amended in anticipation of new federal laws.

The laws will include a maximum $22,000 fine for failing to advise consumers to check classification, or advertising M and PG-rated films during a G-rated movie.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's not like the ESRB is paid much attention to anyway.
