ESRB lifts age requirements on select content

There’s been some new changes to how the ESRB rates games.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has now ruled, in its industry followed guidelines, that mature-rated demos and trailers can now be presented without age gates restricting the content. There is a catch however – content must still adhere to the stipulations for ‘general audiences’ and be approved by the ESRB.

Other adjustments to how things are being done include allowing software to have mature-rated content packed in with lower age-rated titles. For instance – a Far Cry 3 trailer packed into a Raving Rabbids title. Barring research (which wouldn’t exist for that example) correlating the audiences of each game to one another.
