Founded: April 2003; it replaced many national age rating systems with a single European system.
Pan European Game Information (PEGI, pronounced "Peggy") is a European video game content rating system established to help European consumers make informed decisions when buying video games or apps through the use of age recommendations and content descriptors. It was developed by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE). The PEGI system is now used in more than thirty countries and is based on a code of conduct, a set of rules to which every publisher using the PEGI system is contractually committed.
18+ for Ages 18 and Older: May contain graphic violence, including "violence towards defenseless people" and "multiple, motiveless killing", vulgar language, strong sexual content, gambling, drug glamorisation, or discrimination.
The design was altered slightly at the end of 2009, and removed the plus signs that were previously used on the icons.
