ESRB tweaking ratings icons
Entertainment Software Rating Board slightly altering appearance of ratings icons; first design change in over a decade.
The icons for Entertainment Software Rating Board ratings found on games sold in the United States are being changed for the first time in over a decade.
As reported by Polygon, the redesign is a slight shift from the current composition. The phrase "content rated by" has been removed on the new icons, while the name of the rating appears in black on a white background.
"The goal is really to ensure that our symbols are displaying as clearly and legibly as possible in the increasing variety of environments that they're being displayed [in], including online and [on] mobile devices," ESRB president Patricia Vance said.
The new ratings icons will be implemented immediately, though the change is not going to happen overnight.
