The Supreme Court, despite it's conservatism on social policy, will almost definitely side with gamers on this issue. They all know the law, and Schwarzeneggar's bill would make regulating the entertainment industry far more difficult than it already is.

I liked the fact that some of the justices knew more about the subject than the lawyer trying to pass the law.

Nice to see the Supreme Court siding with gamers. What a relieve. And some of this quotes are just hilarious! The Supreme Court is basically mocking these extremists! haha.

"JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR: Would a video game that portrayed a Vulcan, as opposed to a human being, being maimed and tortured - would that be covered by the act?

MR. MORAZZINI: No, it wouldn't, Your Honor, because the act is only directed towards the range of options that are able to be inflicted on a human being.

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR: So if the video producer says “this is not a human being, it's an android computer simulated person,” then all they have to do is put a little artificial feature on the creature and they could sell the video game?

MR. MORAZZINI: Under the act, yes…"

I lol'ed really hard after reading that!

The court proceedings began with Arnold breaking down the entrance to the courtroom and saying, "Knock knock." Then he went over to each of the justices and asked, "Are you Sarah Connor?" Afterwards, when the blood of the jury was dripping down his chin, he caressed his large, carcass-filled belly soothingly, until one of the justices asked if he was okay. He yelled, "It's not a toomah!"

Then he asked to be excused so he could go to the restroom. Before he was out of sight at the entraceway, he turned around, smiled, and said, "I'll be back."

so wuts this about then? banning violent video games or ban the sales to minors?

Banning the sale to minors, like cigarettes and alcohol. Kids can go to see an R rated movie with a parent, listen to Howard Stern on the radio, and can read a Stephen King novel with no problems. However, playing an M rated game?!? OH NO!!! That's what the parents are for.
