Brilliant news. The Digital Britain review has come out in favour of the PEGI system of game age classification, as championed on here (and the rest of the industry). And they have rejected using the BBFC quango as championed by Tanya Byron.
However, before we open the champagne, it is worth noting that the review says that PEGI will be overseen by the Video Standards Council. Let’s hope this does not mean taking a system that currently works well and burdening it with unnecessary bureaucracy and bureaucrats.
And always remember that books, which contain far stronger adult material than any video game, have no age classification system whatsoever.
