Japan Getting Voluntary Ratings System

Japan Getting Voluntary Ratings System

by July 29, 2002

CERO, the Consumer Entertainment Rating Organization in Japan, outlined this morning a rating structure for upcoming video game releases. This new system will rate games based on the amount of violent and sexual content a game has, and give age guidelines based on those evaluations. While the system is merely voluntary, CERO believes that video game companies have a moral obligation to include the rating. This new system is set to become reality this October.
