Government Crackdown on Under-Age Game Sales
Today, the Government are questioning whether to enforce as law the pan-European PEGI ratings.
After being made the sole classification for video games, PEGI ratings could be induced with more meaning.
Minister Ed Vaizey for the Creative Industries claimed, ‘The new system will benefit both parents and industry by creating a stronger, simpler age-rating system.’
‘It will give parents greater confidence that their children can only get suitable games while we are creating a simpler system for industry having their games age-rated.’
