Games industry calls for single rating system

The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) has called on Europe to adopt a single rating system for video games.

Paul Jackson, director of ELSPA, told the Westminster Media Forum that the government must recognise the decisions made in the Byron Review of computer and video games.

Jackson is pushing for adoption of the Pan European Games Ratings Information (PEGI) as the de facto standard rating system across Europe.
