Thread: New BBFC symbols

  1. #1

    New BBFC symbols

    The new BBFC symbols (top line) are a bit rubbish, aren’t they? Even more likely to be an eyesore on your DVD or blu-ray sleeve than the old versions.

    Those probably took some genius three years and 100s of grand to make. 15 is pink, shouldn't that be for R18?

    Better than the ones in Australia which are huge. I wasn't aware Britain had a rating (R18) specifically for porn.

    Like Dom said, the BBFC ones are quite small. Australias are horrible, but Germany is still the worst. Their ratings are gigantic and ruins the entire covers. Luckily most of their cult labels have reversible sleeves without the ratings.

    The most rediculous thing with the German ratings is that the size is set by law, and there’s no variation allowed dependant one package size, so 3DS and Vita games have up to a third of their covers obscured by the FSK logos!

    Even worse is that the new symbols are almost identical to the symbols that the now 'old' ones replaced in about 2002. The only real variance from those symbols the '15' logo was largely white with a red 15 and the triangles have now got rounded corners.

    Sometimes they forget though. I bought the german editions of A Fistful Of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More and both state "wendecover" on them. Except they don't have any. :-/ At least mine don't. It annoys the fuck out of me still.
