-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
HERE'S A TOOL THAT PARENTS CAN USE, WHEN SHOPPING THIS HOLIDAY-SEASON:  THE ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE RATING BOARD HAS JUST LAUNCHED A NEW VERSION OF ITS POPULAR MOBILE-APP THAT LETS PARENTS SEARCH FOR IN-DEPTH VIDEO-GAME RATING-SUMMARIES, RIGHT FROM THE STORE--WHEN THIS INFORMATION IS OFTEN NEEDED MOST.  BUT NOW, IT'S EVEN EASIER:  JUST SNAP A PHOTO OF THE GAME-BOX, WITH YOUR "I-PHONE" OR "ANDROID"-BASED PHONE, TO SEARCH FOR THAT GAME'S RATING-SUMMARY--AND MAKE AN INFORMED PURCHASE-DECISION.  E-S-R-B PRESIDENT, PATRICIA VANCE, HAS MORE...

(VANCE):
"RATING-SUMMARIES GO WELL BEYOND AGE-RATING CATEGORIES--BY PROVIDING SPECIFIC EXAMPLES OF THE CONTENT [THAT] PARENTS REALLY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT, WHEN DECIDING IF A GAME IS O-K FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO PLAY.  WITH OUR NEW MOBILE-APP, ACCESSING RATING-SUMMARIES HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.  SO, THIS HOLIDAY-SEASON, PARENTS SHOULD FIRST CHECK THE E-S-R-B-RATINGS ON THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE BOX--AND, IF STILL NOT SURE, CONSULT OUR RATING-SUMMARY, BEFORE MAKING A FINAL DECISION.
"

(CLOSE):
THE NEW APPS ARE FREE--AND CAN BE FOUND BY SEARCHING "E-S-R-B", IN EITHER THE "APPLE APP STORE" OR THE "ANDROID MARKET".  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "E-S-R-B"-DOT-ORG.
