M-rated video game sales jump in United States

Number of the day

26%

That's the percentage of video games sold in the United States with an M rating for mature content this year, up from 16 percent in 2009, according to NPD Group. The bloodshed in some of these games is drawing flak from the Italian families of Mafia victims, who say titles such as Mafia II trivialize murder. Sonia Alfano, whose father was killed in 1993, wants the European Commission to consider banning the Mafia titles. Between 2004 and 2008, there were 116 organized-crime killings a year in Italy on average. (Industry, Tag Invalid)
