+ - Switzerland passes violent games ban->

BanjoTed (1748316) writes "Your readers found MCV's first story on this back in February quite interesting, so I thought they might be interested to hear about the latest developments. Sadly, Switzerland has now passed the law that paves the way for an outright ban on violent video games in the country.

The full implications of the ruling will not be known until the Government reveals the exact requirements that will be laid down by the new legislation – a decision that has not yet been made. What is certain though is that the Swiss authorities have now obtained the power to introduce any measures they see fit.

The likeliest outcome seems to be an outright ban on the production, distribution and sale of any games deemed to be unsuitable – most likely anything with either a PEGI 16+ or PEGI 18+ certificate."
