Government drops BBFC games ratings

Digital Britain plumps for PEGI...

Lord Carter's Digital Britain report is finally published today, with the government deciding that PEGI is set to be the UK's the single games rating body, with the independent British Board of Film Classification no longer being used to evaluate videogames.

The news follows the statement in the House of Commons on Lord Carter's Digital Britain report, which can be read in full online at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport's website.

While many in the games industry will celebrate the news, questions will no doubt be raised as to whether or not the industry should, effectively, be allowed to regulate itself. (Industry)
