ELSPA Respond To Manhunt Ban

As you may have noticed the BBFC have caused a bit of a stir by rejecting Manhunt 2 and ruling that Rockstar cannot release the game in the UK. To follow up on this ELSPA’s Director General, Paul Jackson, has released a statement praising the rating system which reads “A decision from the BBFC such as this demonstrates that we have a games ratings system in the UK that is effective. It shows it works and works well. Any decision the BBFC takes, it takes on the basis of its remit to rate on screen entertainment.

The games industry is a creative phenomenon that produces all kinds of games across all kinds of genres that appeal to all kinds of people across the country, young and old, male and female. The important thing to know is that all games are rated according to age suitability, with over 70 per cent of games being available to all ages over three years.
