PEGI: Not The Solution But The Start

With the new ratings system coming in in the UK and the Germans still intent on putting developers of violent video games in jail I thought it was time to pass some sort of comment on the state of play (excuse the pun).

The new ratings system that PEGI will be implementing is a massive step forward for the industry (despite the eerie similarities to the BBFC symbols). Now consumers should be less confused as all games will be rated under the same system. It will also become legally enforceable by 2010 and so hopefully people will begin to exercise some consideration in the games they buy for their children.

Anyway, here are my thoughts on the matter.
