Video game to treat schizophrenia seeks FDA approval

The full (but short) article is here:

Companies are developing computer games as therapies for  people with schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety. Should they be regulated, if so - how?
  1. What do you think of the FDA getting involved in regulating this kind of software?
  2. What amount of change to the app, the underlying OS, or the base hardware - will be tolerated before the application has to be re-validated?
  3. Will the FDA regulate these as medical devices, or as medical smartphone apps?
