It's looking increasingly inevitable that the United Kingdom will be legislating videogames. While the British government currently rates videogames, the classification doesn't prevent the sale of games to minors. It is expected that an upcoming report will call for legal penalties for retailers who sell violent games to minors.

According to a report in The Guardian over the weekend, the government in the U.K. will also tell parented to make sure all gaming is done in the living room or kitchen, where the TV is in clear view and activities can be monitored.

Although similar laws have been passed in the United States, they've eventually all been deemed unconstitutional by the courts.
