Free App for Checking Video Game Ratings

ABC News/Activision(NEW YORK) -- Wanna check the rating on a video game without looking at the package?  There’s an app for that.  Patricia Vance, president of the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, says it is now offering a free mobile app that features voice recognition technology so users can simply say the name of the game to obtain a ratings summary.  The app works for over 20-thousand video game titles.

Vance says, “There's really no excuse for parents to be surprised when they bring these gifts home for the holidays and then the kid starts to play the game and they discover that's there's some sort of content that they weren't aware of.”
