Microsoft's GetGameSmart

Microsoft announces the launch of, a new initiative in partnership with a number of retailers to encourage families to collaborate on making wise entertainment choices: "It means developing healthy habits when it comes to playing video games, watching TV and surfing the Web. It's also about understanding online safety, setting screen time limits and making rules about what's OK and what's off limits. Take the Get Game Smart Family Challenge and we'll help you create a fun, balanced media environment in your home." More details are in this press release.

To me this looks like Microsoft covering their ass as far as prospective law suits and also bad publicity. If under attack, they can respond with something like "We do try to protect our consumers with our program. We realize there may be certain risks associated with compulsive web surfing, game playing and TV watching." blah blah blah.

This is so that if something like 60 Minutes tries to make a big huge scandal out of what MS sells, they can show some kind of effort to save face.
