PSPgo Features ESRB Ratings Guide

September 18, 2009 -

Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) President Patricia Vance used her PlayStation blog to reveal that Sony has embedded an ESRB Video Game Ratings Guide directly on its PSPgo.

The guide offers a walk through of ratings categories and descriptors, along with a tutorial for setting up parental controls on Sony’s new handheld.

I think this is just a CYA (Cover your ass) move by sony.  A good one at that really.

Re: PSPgo Features ESRB Ratings Guide

Parents never read ratings. That's why so many kids out there can get M rated games easily.

When Jack Thompson runs his mouth, does anyone really care what he has to say anymore?

Re: PSPgo Features ESRB Ratings Guide

There's nothing wrong with kids playing M-rated games.  The fact that many parents let their kids play M-rated games does not necessarily mean that the parents aren't reading the ratings.  It may mean that most parents are clued-in enough to realise that M-rated games are harmless.

The parents we should be concerned about are not the ones who let their kids play harmless games, but those who insist that harmless games are harmful.

Too bad the sort of parents that REALLY need something like this will also need a tutorial on how to use the tutorial.

Of course not. We'll hear how it's "Too confusing" even though all they need to do is read the goddamn manual. Of course that's al ittle much to ask in this day and age.

InfophileRetailer exclusives are the worst preorders, especially when there's more than one. It's just trying to take advantage of the hardcore fans who want all the bonuses.08/31/2015 - 5:00pm
Andrew EisenNeat idea for a comic: single parent trying to raise a kid with superpowers. http://www.dennis-liu.com/08/31/2015 - 4:35pm

Andrew EisenMore pre-order crap but pretty neat alt-costumes for Street Fighter 5. Love it when they take the time to model new outfits and hairstyles as opposed to going the easy route with a palette swap. Pick your favorite because each is retailer exclusive...08/31/2015 - 3:52pm

Brad GlasgowIt's the same argument as all her videos. She argues that the tropes reinforce bad behavior. She has no evidence to support that.08/31/2015 - 2:27pm
InfophilePredictions: 1) People will be mad and criticize her without even watching the video. 2) People will be upset that she criticizes things they like without thinking about whether the criticism has merit08/31/2015 - 1:29pm
