California Game Bill Signed

Governor Schwarzenegger Signs California Games Bill (thanks Primotech) announces that the bill restricting the sale of violent games to children before the Governator has been signed into law, to take effect on January 1, 2006. Here's a bit:
Governor Schwarzenegger has released an official statement on his action, commenting: "Today I signed legislation to ensure parent involvement in determining which video games are appropriate for their children. The bill I signed will require that violent video games be clearly labeled and not be sold to children under 18 years old. Many of these games are made for adults and choosing games that are appropriate for kids should be a decision made by their parents."

The bill requires warning labels to be placed on violent games. Customers purchasing games with the label would be required to show ID; retailers who either did not check for ID or did not show the labels will be liable for a $1,000 fine per infraction. The stronger punishment written into the bill is a result of a previous effort by Assemblyman Yee to limit sales of violent games, the failure of which Yee believed to be due to a lack of consequences.

If stores like Wal-Mart (which sell the vast majority of games) are forced to ID people who want to buy mature rated games, they will simply NOT SELL THOSE GAMES.

I doubt it. The Wal-Marts around where I live have been carding for M-rated games for the last year or two. Any M-rated game scanned brought up a message telling the clerk to check IDs, even on the self-checkouts.
