 - US Supreme Court, Violent Videogames, State of California, I was in the Expendables, Where I shot a lot of people

It looks like the storm in a teacup brewing over the pond with regards to a Supreme Court hearing, with the State of California petitioning for a motion to change the way games are sold to minors, has sort of fizzled out a bit.

With the hearing often getting quite heated, and various examples cited by SoCal of instances where games crossed the line from entertainment into gross indecency were, if anything, examples of why such a ruling could never really be passed into law.

Anecdotal evidence based on squirmier moments in games like Running With Scissors' Postal and Postal 2, or Sega's MadWorld, were not enough to take the case much further than a stalemate.

The US Supreme Court has until next July to make a firm ruling based on the hearing's outcome. Kotaku's excellent coverage of the proceedings can be found through the link at the top of this article
