Calif. Legislature Passes Requirement that Retailers Post Video Game Ratings
GameSpy reports that the California legislature has passed a bill requiring videogame retailers to post ratings labels and provide information about ratings on videogames (Video game bill passes Senate). The bill now awaits the signature or veto of Gov. Schwarzenegger. Read the legislative analysis of the AB 1793 here: AB 1793 - Bill Analysis.
While this is better than original versions of the bill, it still shows the prejudice legislators have against this particular media. Why not similar requirements for bookstores, movie theaters, music stores and magazine stands?
