ESRB Changes the Rating Process for Downloadable Games

| | Comments (0)
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) – those folks responsible for the letter rating that U.S. gamers see on boxes – is introducing a revised and "streamlined" rating process for downloadable games that will appear on consoles. The system that was introduced in 1994 was designed for big retail releases, and not for games with shorter development cycles and lower budgets. The new process is shorter, simpler, presumably much cheaper, and designed to encourage downloadable games (such as those that appear on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade) to pursue ratings.
