It can actually be quite different. Take for example Persona games. In Japan they are rated CERO B, something likely to get an E10+ in the US under a majority of circumstances. In the US, its rated M for the same content.Nandemonai wrote:B173 M3 wrote:I'm talking about releasing all-ages games on consoles.

...That's it? Having the occasionally subjective "T" rating as opposed to the expected "E" rating or the occassionally subjective "M" rating as opposed to the expected "T" rating is a reason to write off the ESRB as some kind of obstacle for VNs? I know they can be weird at times, but really, is that all there is to it?
