New PEGI UK ratings delayed again
The introduction of the PEGI rating system as the UK's one and only games ratings system has been delayed again.
The legislation making PEGI the UK's official games ratings system was passed as part of the 2012 Digital Economies Bill but the government has been delaying bringing the ratings in to force.
A UKIE spokesperson said: "This further delay to PEGI's implementation is extremely frustrating not to mention disappointing. We have received repeated assurances from Government that the process is in hand, yet PEGI is still no closer to implementation."
The statement continued: "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."
