British Columbia retailers are lauding a new self-regulatory approach to classifying video games that adopts the international Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) system, much to the relief of those who were worried about the government adopting a B.C.-only guide. Since the introduction of legislation mandating a restrictive ratings system last April (CNM, April 19/01), a new conservative government headed by Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell has apparently decided to extend the industry more flexibility than the previous NDP government, which first introduced the new laws.
