X-Play Investigates: The Supreme Court »


The big day is almost upon us, folks. On November 2nd, the Supreme Court of the United States will consider whether video games should be afforded the same First Amendment rights as other forms of entertainment, as presented in the case of Schwarzenegger v. Electronic Merchant Association/Electronic Software Association. As you’d expect, G4 will be bringing you all of the latest from Washington D.C. with regards to this landmark case, so break out those day planners, and hit the jump, because here’s what G4 has in store for you.

First, you’ll want to make sure you tune into X-Play tonight at 6:30PM EST. Get the scoop on what the big SCOTUS case is all about, and what the far reaching implications could be should the Supreme Court uphold California’s anti-violent video game law.

On November 2nd, you’ll be able to find out exactly what went down in the court room during the case’s oral arguments, as well as analysis and discussions about where the games industry goes from here, on G4tv.com. And be sure to check out Attack of the Show, where Adam will be appearing via satellite from D.C. to recap the day’s events, and bring you all the latest details.

Also, be sure to check out our recent interview with Insomniac Games' Ted Price, because...well, he's Ted Price, and because he addresses all of the relevant issues at hand in a perfectly succinct fashion.

If you need a refresher before tomorrow, be sure to check out our in-depth Video Games on Trial series in which we breakdown the case, look at its history, and examine the arguments put forth by both the state of California and the EMA/ESA.

And if you are going to be in D.C. tomorrow for the hearing, be sure to share your experiences and thoughts in our comments sections. Gamers unite!
