ESRB announces no-cost ratings system for downloadable games

The ESRB today announced a no-cost, streamlined service for the assignment of ratings to all digitally distributed games content.

ESRB announces no-cost ratings system for downloadable games

The system utilizes a "brief but detailed online questionnaire" to assess both the age level of content along three additional categories by which a title is judged: "Shares Info," "Shares Location," and "Users Interact;" these refer to sharing of personal information with third parties, sharing of physical location, and user-generated content/user communications. 

ESRB announces no-cost ratings system for downloadable games

This new service will soon be put into use for Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Certified Devices, Nintendo eShop, Wii Shop channel, and Windows 8 titles. "Other digital content aggregators, online game networks, streaming, and download services" will soon follow. Presumably, mobile games will be next on the chopping block for this new system.
