The PEGI age rating system was set up in 2003 to guide parents buying video
games and is supported by major video game producers. The aim is to ensure
that children are not exposed to games unsuitable for their age group. Poland so far did not have any parental guidance legislation. After this press release some
large manufacturers have already labeled their products with the PEGI
system. This includes that the manufacture suggest the required ages and warning of offensive language, sexual content or violence on a voluntary basis on the label.
Other countries such as Australia and New Zealand have enforced some of the toughest legislation in the world, introducing bans on excessively violent video games and Poland wants to join the race.
