Clinton Targets Game Content
8:18 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

As detailed in a recent IDG News article, Senator Hillary Clinton has announced plans to introduce legislation to prevent children from gaining access to video games with violent and pornographic content. This decision results from controversy surrounding the recent "Hot Coffee" modification for the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas game which allows players to access pornographic content.

Clinton said such material makes it tough on parents to keep pornographic material away from children. The New York senator plans to push for tougher enforcement of existing video game ratings as well as a US$5,000 penalty on retailers that fail to prohibit sale of violent and sexually explicit games to minors, she said in a statement on her Web site.
The repercussions of legislative action in this case could have a significant impact on the choices available to gamers on all platforms, and are likely to draw a great deal of interest in the days ahead.
