Statistics about PEGI

Included in these statistics are all the PEGI ratings that were issued using the classic PEGI pre-release rating procedure, which applies:
- to all games released on disc or cartridge for Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony consoles, and PC.
- to all games released digitally for Microsoft and Sony devices (including smartphones and tablets).
- to many games released digitally for PC.

A number of digitally downloadable games received their PEGI rating using a different process (but based on the exact same criteria): the IARC system. Examples are: Nintendo eShop, Google Play store and Oculus VR store. For technical reasons, these age classifications cannot be included in the statistics below.
