Full PEGI Implementation Delays Continue

November 15, 2011 -

MCV is reporting that the introduction of the PEGI ratings system as the standard for games ratings in the United Kingdom has been delayed even further. Last week game industry trade group UKIE announced that the ratings system wouldn't be officially used by the UK until sometime in "early 2012." Today we learn that UKIE has pushed the implementation of PEGI further back to a date to yet to be determined.

The UK game industry voluntarily adopted the PEGI age rating system in 2003, before it was enshrined in the law in the Digital Economy Act 2010. As MCVUK points out, the relevant part of the Digital Economy Act has yet to be brought into force.

"This further delay to PEGI's implementation is extremely frustrating not to mention disappointing," UKIE said in a statement. "We have received repeated assurances from Government that the process is in hand, yet PEGI is still no closer to implementation."

"It is also disappointing that a Government constantly - and quite rightly - pressuring the industry to put measures in a place to protect children - can't seem to deliver on its side of the bargain."

It's much better that PEGI isn't rating all games (they give too many silly ratings). The longer the delay, the better.

Andrew EisenMatt - Why would you immediately turn your nose up at medium.com? It's just a blog-publishing platform anyone can use. I've been linked to articles by people on both sides of the argument. 08/03/2015 - 5:43pm
MattsworknameIP: at this point, theres pretty much nothing you can say that we don't discount right away cause your bias and personal hatred colors pretty much everythng you say. But, for the record. Medium.com? really? We should belive that in any way shape or form?08/03/2015 - 5:38pm
IronPatriotbenohawk, TotalBiscuit is a totalLIAR and decided to be part of the gamergate problem.08/03/2015 - 4:27pm

IronPatriotbenohawk, TotalBiscuit claims he's against harassment, but he joined a movement created for harassment and told inflammatory lies about the victims of gamergate.08/03/2015 - 4:25pm
IronPatriotbenohawk, TotalBiscuit told massive lies about gamergate victims like Sarkeesian. What difference does it make if one side of his mouth says he's against harassment when he joins a movement created for harassment?08/03/2015 - 4:23pm
