(NEW YORK) – Westchester County has teamed up with the video game industry’s rating board in an educational campaign to make sure parents have the information they need to make educated decisions about their kids’ computer and video game choices, County Executive Andy Spano announced today.

The county and the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) have jointly developed a brochure titled “OK To Play?” that explains in detail the industry’s voluntary rating system for computer and video games. The brochures will be distributed by the county to parents and other residents through libraries, schools and stores where video games are sold and rented.
