 - PEGI ratings, UK, April Fools Day, 2011, Controversial

MCV has learned that the government-backed new videogame age-rating system, PEGI-fied, won't actually be in place for the usual Christmas run-up. In fact the new age ratings won't start appearing on games until April 1st, 2011.

Yup that's right, April 1st.

One odd wrinkle in the new ratings system is that PEGI 18 games won't actually be required to carry BBFC 18 certificates.

As part of the upcoming Digital Economy Act, the ratings system was supposed to revolutionise the way parents pick and choose the games that their children play, but it's unlikely that anything you can stick on the front of a game box will make a difference. Disagree? Have your say below...
