ESA To Attend White House Meeting On Violence In Video Games

Posted on by Ryan


Last week many video game companies were caught off-guard after the White House revealed they plan on hosting a meeting with several major video game companies with many saying they would not be attending. Now it seems we know at least one company that will be attending.

The Entertainment Software Association have announced they will be attending this meeting at the White House. The organization said in a statement..

“Video games are enjoyed around the world and numerous authorities and reputable scientific studies have found no connection between games and real-life violence. Like all Americans, we are deeply concerned about the level of gun violence in the United States. Video games are plainly not the issue: entertainment is distributed and consumed globally, but the US has an exponentially higher level of gun violence than any other nation.”

“The upcoming meeting at the White House, which ESA will attend, will provide the opportunity to have a fact-based conversation about video game ratings, our industry’s commitment to parents, and the tools we provide to make informed entertainment choices.”

This meeting will take place on March 8.
