New PEGI ratings for UK delayed

New age ratings system held up in committee

UK Minister for Culture Ed Vaizey has confirmed that there will be a further delay in implementing the new PEGI age ratings system brought in in the Digital Economies Bill.

The new system was due to become the legally enforced standard in the UK on April the 1st but there are still a few details to iron out and that is what is causing the delay.

Vaizey said: "There's been some technical delays to iron out a few kinks nothing fundamental, nothing serious. And we'll crack on with it as fast as we can."

A source close to PEGI told GamesIndustry.biz: "What goes on the front of the box is fine. It's what goes on the back of the box that's still being discussed."
