The internet is flooded today with news of a second rating of Grand Theft Auto IV, this time by PEGI. The game received an 18+ rating, stating it contains Violence and Swearing. The rating records are not yet available on PEGI.info (the official website of the group) for an yet unknown reason However PlayStation's UK website contains the rating and information. ESRB and the BBFC are the next expected to rate the game, however with the current battles between the BBFC and Rockstar I wouldn't be expecting a terrific outcome.

Well don't take the "18+" as being generally bad. The rating under that is 16+, which wouldn't really fit the game I don't think since it is adult oriented. 18+ is rather equal to Australia's MA15+ rating that the game received the other week. So I can't see it being bad, in fact I can see the game being released everywhere just fine.

Well yeah what do you expect when it comes to Grand theft Auto?

And like I said somewhere else on TGTAP, the violence in GTA is too cartoon-ish to scare or horrify people this game isn't Manhunt or anything but either way the rating seems reasonable. My mum actually laughed when she saw me slice someone's head off with a Katana and all the blood just started spilling out of the body with no head :rofl:

I expected a 18+ rating from PEGI, and I am expecting a 18+ from ESRB and BBFC too.

But I can honestly say I don't think GTA IV will have any trouble being released like ManHunt did.

And XBOX 360 UK site has got the 18+ on the GTA IV page now aswell.

An 18+ rating from the ESRB means Adults Only, meaning people can't buy it. Sony doesn't allow AO games on the PS3 and I'm guessing neither does Microsoft.

Of course, GTA IV will receive a Mature (17+) rating from the ESRB. I'm still gonna get it, and I don't think the clerks at my local Walmart give two shits if a 16 year old is buying an M-rated game.
