According to Yahoo!Buzz:
According to video game blog MCV, “the Swiss National Council has now officially passed a law that will ultimately lead to the complete ban of any violent video games in the country.” The exact requirements have not been decided yet. However, the Swiss government will have the authority to “introduce any measures they see fit.”
Move over Australia. Switzerland will not be outdone when it comes to authoritarian control of free expression.
According to Yahoo! News, the National Council passed two resolutions which are not yet law:
The first resolution comes from the Socialist Party, which wants to “stop the manufacture, advertisement, importation and sale of any game that promotes as a means of advancement or ‘success’ acts of violence against humans or ‘human-like’ creatures,” according to Kotaku. This passed by a margin of 19 to 12.
The second resolution, pushed by the Christian Democratic Party, delves into specificity, seeking to “restrict the sale of violent shooters to children.” It passed by a margin of 27 to 1.
I haven’t seen anything to indicate there are any plans to censor sex-related material, but you can be sure that will follow eventually.
