The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association system (ELSPA for short) was the official (voluntary) video game rating system used in the United Kingdom between 1994 and 2003 (and was adopted unofficially by some countries without their own system). In May 2003, the ELSPA system was replaced by the pan-European system PEGI.
There were 4 different ratings in the ELSPA system:
|ELSPA: 15+ (Rare; games like Tomb Raider were given this)|
|ELSPA: 18+ (Extremely rare; games like BMX XXX were given this)|
|ESRB (United States/Canada/Mexico)|
|PEGI (Europe) • BBFC (UK) • ELSPA (UK, retired) • USK (Germany) • VET (Finland)|
|CERO (Japan, console) • EOCS (Japan, PC/mobile) • GRB (South Korea)|
|ACB (Australia) • OFLC (New Zealand)|
