Newsbrief: The British Government's Department for Culture Media and Sport today announced its intention to introduce a statutory age rating for video games in the UK, after four years of deliberation on the matter. The Video Standards Council will be brought in during this summer as the regulator behind the PEGI system, after what the company described as an "intensive and lengthy process." The Byron Review first recommended a single statutory age rating for video games back in 2008. While there is still no official date for the commencement of the PEGI statutory age rating system, the VSC said that the move will ensure children and younger people are protected against inappropriate video games.
