Another State Sets Regulation on Video Games

A report said the state of Illinois is moving to ban sales of video games to young people.

The Wall St Journal reports that the state’s Democrat governor will introduce two bills – one preventing firms from selling violent games, and the other stopping retailers to sell games to young people that show nudity.

The proposed fine for breaching the laws, if the legislation is passed, are a year in prison or a fine of $5,000, the newspaper said.

The governor is particularly concerned about Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but the proposed legislation faces opposition from the games industry.
