“The ESRB has announced that the upcoming Why is the campaign rated R? campaign will be rated R. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of the rating system among parents and will be supported by a national TV online and print advertising campaign.

“The Why is the campaign rated R? campaign is a response to continued concerns from parents about the content their children are exposed to when playing video games” said ESRB President Patricia Vance. “This campaign is designed to help parents better understand the ESRB rating system so they can make informed choices about the video games they purchase for their families.”

The Why is the campaign rated R? campaign will feature a 60-second TV spot that will air on primetime and cable television as well as online video ads and print ads in major magazines.
