Ted Price: Video Game Legislation Has No Place in America
Insomniac founder and CEO Ted Price has said that he believes video game legislation has no place in America.
"It saddens me to see legislators stomping all over our First Amendment rights for their own specific interests." he said.
Price believes people should write a letters to their Congressman about bills that are happening in their state in order to make a difference.
"Otherwise, legislators don't know that their constituents care and they're just simply, I think, walking blindly, following what they think is the mainstream opinion." he said.
To quote: "We're going through what every other entertainment industry has gone through, and that's being the temporary scapegoat for society's ills," Price reasoned. "I think that we as an industry do a fantastic job of policing ourselves, we have one of the most effective, if not the most effective rating system in any entertainment industry right now."
"It won't be until we have more gamers running for office that this will calm down," he added. "It's something that we'll weather, because we are right, what we do is defensible under the Constitution and shouldn't be regulated by the government." More PlayStation 3 News...
