    I don't think it'll make any difference at all. We already have a legally enforceable system, the only difference now is that the 12 rating has to be enforced too.
    The problem isn't with games being sold to the underage, it's with the games being sold to the parents who give them to their kids with no thought to what the game contains and why it's rated.

    well with a little luck when the child is refused the game it might make mummy and daddy have a look at what else little johnny/Joanne has in his/her collection.

    I have often thought that gamestation should be prosecuted for selling games to underage kids. I've seen clueless parents with kids with them, buying 18 rated games where it's very obvious who they're buying them for.

    Put it this way, if I went to tesco, bought a 4 pack, and was saying loudly to my son " these were the beers you wanted, weren't they?" would they sell them to me? No chance!
