Summary
  • A rating system for video games seems certain, but the details are far from settled. Publishers must seriously discuss what products will be rated, which will be exempted, and how the rating process will work. The industry is under heavy pressure from Congress to have a rating system working by Christmas 1994. The Interactive Digital Software Assn (IDSA) will report to two Senate subcommittees by early June. ISDA was formed in Apr 1994 by Virgin Interactive, Sony, Viacom, Sega, Philips Media, Nintendo, Konami, Electronic Arts, Crystal Dynamics, Capcom, Acclaim and Atari. Arthur Pober, the former head of the Council of Better Business Bureaus' Children's Advertising Review Unit, has been named executive director of the IDSA ratings board. IDSA proposes a system of prior review, under which publishers would submit their games to a ratings board before sending them to market. The Software Publishers Assn, however, firmly opposes prior review.
