The Revolution will be ... locked out?

Some interesting stuff here. Apparently every Revolution will have a "play control system" that will enable parents to choose which games are playable on the console. Right now we know the European system will conform Pan European Games Information (PEGI), which is the overseas equivalent of the ESRB rating system - no word on if the US version will let people lock out "T" or "M" rated games. If so, you have to wonder what types of games Nintendo may be open to with that level of optional censorship.

If Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's warming up to first-person shooters and massively multiplayer online games, then perhaps this unshakable "kiddy" image Nintendo has can finally die a quiet death.
