    I don't know what this means for Indie developers who sell games online, but it looks like enforcement of PEGI ratings will soon become mandatory for UK retailers.

    iirc it doesn't cost much/anything but the logjam is going to be a nightmare. And of course it may well end up costing a lot when it's a requirement. I mean, we now have a "pasty" tax.

    Also, government type institutions can't organise a piss up in a brewery and the entire process will be inordinately longwinded and full of mistakes and incorrect verdicts. New ideas and processes don't go down well with the kind of people in these kind of jobs ime.

    It don't get much worse than this if it becomes law.
