Kmart announced it will refuse sale of mature-rated games to anyone under 17, using a barcode scanner that will prompt cashiers to ask for identification from young people.
After Kmart's news conference in Washington, Wal-Mart announced it would adopt the same policy. In a letter last month to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the president of Toys R Us said the practice is already in place at his company's stores.
Sessions applauded the move, but said he would prefer that retailers stop selling mature-rated games, as Montgomery Ward and Sears, Roebuck and Co. already have done.
Sessions said he believes "intense involvement" with violent video games can cause a young person to become violent. "Common sense should tell us that positively reinforcing sadistic behavior, as these games do, cannot be good for our children," said Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan. "We cannot expect that the hours spent in school will mold and instruct a child's mind but that hours spent playing violent games will not."
