http://www.mediafamily.org/research/...grc_2005.shtmlThe newest</a> actually says 44% success rate. Which is still pretty bad. But 42 stores seems a bit too small segment to me.

It's also worth reading http://biz.gamedaily.com/features.asp?article_id=11225this article</a> which has the ESRB and IEMA responses.

But the report card isn't all bad. They do recommend parents to buy the Minish Cap and We Love Katamari <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
