HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut's attorney general isn't happy that a video game called "Beer Pong" was rated suitable for children as young as 13.
Richard Blumenthal says that was a mistake by the Entertainment Software Rating Board. He wants the video games rating board to change its methods so games involving alcohol aren't recommended to minors.
The game is made by Las Vegas-based JV Games Inc. and designed for Nintendo Co.'s popular Wii game system. The name of the yet-to-be-released game has been changed to "Pong Toss" and the gamemaker is eliminating all references to alcohol.
The ESRB's president defends its rating of the original "Beer Pong" game. She says alcohol played a minimal role in the game and nobody was shown drinking beer.
