  1. 1. PEGI Pan European Game Information
  2. 2. Introduction to PEGI... <ul><li>It is a European system for classifying the content of video games and other entertainment software. It was established in order to help European parents make informed choices when buying computer games. It was developed by the ISFE (Interactive Software Federation of Europe) and came into effect in April 2003. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Is already used in most of Europe </li></ul><ul><li>The system is supported by major console manufacturers, including Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, as well as by publishers and developers of interactive games throughout Europe. </li></ul>
  4. 4. PEGIS age rating labels: <ul><li>PEGI labels are placed on the front and back of packs and indicate one of the following age levels: 3, 7, 12, 16 and 18. Reliably indicate the suitability of game content in terms of protection of minors. The age rating does not take into account the difficulty level or skills required to play. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>PEGI 3? The content of the games with this rating are considered suitable for all age groups. We accept some degree of violence in a comical context (usually forms of violence typical of cartoons like Bugs Bunny or Tom and Jerry). The child should not be able to relate the characters on the screen with real life characters, game characters should be totally in the realm of fantasy. The game should not contain any sounds or images that may scare or frighten young children. No foul language should be heard and must not contain nudity or any reference to sexual activity. PEGI 7? May be considered eligible for this category the games normally be rated at 3 but containing scenes that may frighten or sounds. Allowed partial nudity, but never in a sexual context. PEGI 12? In this category may include video games showing violence more graphic nature towards fantasy character and / or non-graphic violence towards human-looking characters or recognizable to animals, as well as videogames that show nudity in nature more graph. The foul language should be smooth and contain no sexual expletives. PEGI 16? This category applies when the representation of violence (or sexual activity) reaches a similar level would be expected in real life. The youth of this age group should also be able to handle more foul language, the concept of using snuff and drugs and the representation of criminal activity. . PEGI 18? The adult classification is applied when the level of violence reaches such a degree that it becomes brutal violence on behalf of or includes elements of specific types of violence. The brutal violence is the most difficult concept to define, since in many cases can be very subjective but generally can be defined as the representation of violence that produces disgust in the viewer The descriptors that appear on the back of the boxes indicate the main reasons why a game has received a specific age group. There are eight descriptors: violence, bad language, fear, drugs, sex, discrimination, and play games online with other people. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Different tags: <ul><li>Bad language: The game contains profanity Discrimination: The game contains depictions discriminatory, or material which may encourage discrimination. Drugs: The game refers to or shows the use of drugs. Fear: The game can be frightening or scary for young children Game: Games that promote gambling and betting play or teach. Sex: The game contains depictions of nudity and / or sexual behavior or sexual references Violence: Game contains depictions of violence Online: The game can be played online </li></ul>
  7. 7. PEGI OK labels: <ul><li>The owner of a Web site or a gaming portal can use the PEGI OK label after making a statement that the PEGI game does not contain material that requires a formal classification. To apply PEGI OK label, the game can NOT contain any of the following elements: violence, sex or sexual innuendo, naked, foul language, gambling, or drug development, promotion of alcohol or snuff, scenes afraid. If the game contains any of these items shall be classified by age according to the PEGI rating system standard. The game will then receive a normal PEGI rating (3, 7, 12, 16 or 18). </li></ul>
  8. 8. More information on PEGI: Owner and administrators. <ul><li>ISFE: The PEGI system was created and is owned by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe, based in Belgium. The ISFE was founded in 1998 to represent the interests of the interactive software industry to the European Union and other international institutions.

The VSC reviews the games rated higher ages 12, 16 and 18 according to the criteria PEGI. The VSC was established as a nonprofit organization to develop and monitor a code of practice designed to promote high standards within the industries of video games and computer games.
