Games age rating rules changed

Games age rating rules changed

The system by which video games are rated in the UK is to be made “simpler and stronger”, the government has said.

Games will now be rated by the Video Standards Council (VSC) in line with Europe-wide guidelines.

Previously, additional ratings were decided upon by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

The new system means for the first time that anybody selling a 12-rated game to a child under that age could face jail.

The Pan European Game Information system (Pegi) gives games an age rating as well as additional information such as violent content and bad language.

The VSC will now rate games to Pegi’s specifications while enforcing compliance among retailers.

The new ratings do not apply to games bought online.
