European Parliament to make games regs announcement this week

Monday, 9th February 2009 15:40 GMT By Patrick Garratt


The European Parliament is about to make an announcement on guidelines concerning children and “harmful” games.

From its site:

Video game safety: The Internal Market Committee will set out a series of recommendations to improve the protection of children from potentially harmful video games on Wednesday.

The institution gave its support to PEGI in January.

Thanks, GamePolitics.

    Yeah but those recommendations could turn into legislation sometime in the future.

    True, but there’s no cause for alarm just at the moment. Let’s not be like those knee-jerk reactionary types on

    I only expressed my concern because usually when politicians come up with recommendations about game ratings it gets worse than before.

    You never know they might offer some sensible advice aimed at informing parents not to just buy any game their child wants.
