ESRB announces no-cost ratings system for downloadable games

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

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.

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.
