Okay, I'm sorry, but I just *DON'T GET IT*.
I've lived in the US, and yet there are still things I don't get about it - like the clinging to the consitution for things that patently don't make sense.
So: Game rating ages are attempting to be enforced by law - sounds perfectly reasonable, we do it in New Zealand under the same rating system as movies and dvds and publications (you know, old style pr0n) - and this is "unconstitutional" on grounds of freedom of speech? Thus creating lots of legal arguments, etc, etc, which will eventually resulting in a redrafting of the law so it will have exactly the same effect but rephrase things so that people can't object on constitutional grounds?
Right, that seems like a good use of taxpayer and industry cash.
