ESA counters Hill & Knowlton's 'unprofessional and unethical' release of research

Just as various outlets are reporting about a survey by market research company Hill & Knowlton, which stated the 60% of parents would like to see government regulation of mature and violent video games, the Electronic Software Association has responded to the news with a statement to Joystiq. Actually, "statement" is a light way of putting it. The ESA, the industry lobbying group, has pimp-slapped Hill & Knowlton and called them out by saying their "decision to release these findings was both unprofessional and unethical and its timing is questionable."

The story is too old to be commented.
