Curbs on Violent Video Games? Makers Brace for Possibility

When the U.S. Supreme Court agreed in April to review a California law prohibiting the sale or rental of violent video games to minors in its next term, it sent shock waves through the gaming industry.

Analysts, insiders and even casual observers had been expecting justices to let stand a lower court ruling, which had declared the law unconstitutional. Once they didn’t, the scramble began to assess the possible implications—and leaders of the industry say they could be dire.

The story is too old to be commented.

i simply don't see what the big deal is. you can't sell an R rated movie to a minor but that hardly puts no country for old men "on the level of pornography". i think publishers are simply scared because they know alot of their consumers are underage.

i'm a libertarian, i'd like to see ALL age restrictions on legal products (except guns obviously) eliminated but i think this furor is much ado about nothing. should this exist? no. but it's not this sky is falling doomsday scenario.
