According to this, Microsoft's Neil Thompson - head of corporate affairs in the UK - has said he wants games ratings to stay with PEGI when Tanya Byron submits her reports of games age restriction to the government later this month.

"We made it very clear to the Byron Report team, both as an industry and as Microsoft, strongly believe that PEGI has a lot more benefits for customers, parents and for everyone involved in the industry really," he said.

No one knows for sure what Byron is to recommend in the coming weeks, with both the formation of a new regulatory body and taking the BBFC to rate all games in the UK a possibility.
