Default Industry Changes for Digital Game and App Developers

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.
