Industry Changes for Digital Game and App Developers

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has introduced a streamlined, no-cost service that allows creators of digital-only games and apps to obtain ESRB ratings without having to pay a fee. ESRB recently released a video announcement to digital-only game and app developers explaining the service: http://youtu.be/dHR9eMvkwoc

Screw the ESRB. It's just a ploy to get their claws into mobile, and once established, they'll exert their power. What we have works, no need for another bureaucratic "review" layer that will inevitably stifle creativity.

ESRB just try to do a Freetoplay tactic on mobile
When everyone will use it, they will charge for it.

Don't we already have an Apple rating? I don't see the point in ESRB either.
