The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has brought its Digital Rating Service online. The system allows developers of downloadable games to have their content instantly assessed by means of a questionnaire, at no cost. This is great news for small and indie developers wanting the professionalism of an ESRB rating on their product, but also for consumers and caregivers wanting guidance as to what apps are appropriate for various age groups. The new system has been in the works since early last year.
