The colors, Duke! THE COLORS!!!!!!!!!
The 16 year age rating should have been orange caution. The symbols are a ripoff of the CERO system and some of those are unnecessary, come on there's a category for love and crime. Love and sexual content should be grouped together and crime goes with violence, associations people, use them.
agreed with hop,
the question is why do this... wasn't the old way, the good way?
I hope you wern't serious about that.
The old PEGI ratings had numbers on them, so dont call the new ones a ripoff
Lets just hope they aren't as big as that German monstrosity they put on the packaging
so, let me get this strait, a just having people scared in the game is enough to increase its rating, bloody ridiculous. I really do wonder about some of these ratings, especially with the whole phoenix wright "grape juice" thing. Then again, I have always questioned the wisdom of such ageism.
well I guess "fear" can be problematic for people who have heart conditions
cheap scares like in some of the resident evil and condemned games where things just pop out at you...
Shovelware should be rated at 12 or higher, since I am afraid of those games. The horror!
Wait does this mean the ratings will now be enforceable?
Were I to go the conspiracy theory route I would say it has something to do with people waking up to the disparity between ratings of games and video.
Oh well most kids I know these days can swing a newsreader as well as I and I am more than happy to teach others.
No, The only enforceable ratings are still the BBFC, The pegi ratings are still advisory and carry no legal penaltys if mis-sold
That's interesting, Chinatown Wars didn't have a Pegi rating, it was rated 18 by BBFC.
Looks like the Pegi system has adopted the same colour system the BBFC uses.
I was meaning the new descriptive symbols on the back of the game box.
They had those too..
Seriously, look it up. im not joking
same colour - fail
To clarify: they coloured the boxes in.
No seriously that's all they've done, everything else mentioned in the article is already in use, and has been at least for the lifetime of the DS. Every DS game on my shelf already has one of these ratings, with a second symbol to justify why where appropriate. Given the similarities I doubt the new symbols will be any bigger than the existing ones.
I guess this is a good indicator of how many of you actually buy games!
