CALIFORNIA - The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a California law Monday that would ban the sale of "violent" video games to children.

The 7-to-2 vote made it a victory for video game makers and sellers, who said the ban would go too far.

If the law had been passed, the sale or rental of games like "Grand Theft Auto 4" wouldn't be sold to anyone under 18.

The gaming industry said their voluntary rating system gives parents enough information to judge if the game is appropriate for their kid.
