PSP: On the ‘Go’ ESRB Ratings

September 19, 2009Written by Kishen Patel


The Electronic Software Rating Board, better known as the ESRB, has been around since the first violent mainstream game, the original Mortal Kombat, hit homes back in 1994. Since then, the independent content advisory board has evolved its tactics by utilizing sophisticated techniques.


Patricia Vance, the president of the ESRB, announced a new application that comes pre-loaded on the PSP Go (seen above). The application informs gamers, usually parents or guardians, about the the content rating guidelines and teaches them how to use the PSP’s parental controls.

Just a word of advice: if players have no need for this gaming education, they can opt to delete the application from their go to free up some space for more Mini’s.
