The following is an explanation of the age ratings and parental controls available for the games and comics on the PlayStation®Store and for videos available on the PlayStation®Store or on Sony Entertainment Network.
All of the games available on the PlayStation®Store are labelled with symbols indicating the age for which they are suitable. Age ratings are not a guide to gaming difficulty. Parents should always check ratings before buying or allowing their children to buy or download games from the PlayStation®Store.
By checking age ratings, and using the parental controls (see below), parents and carers can help to ensure that children are not exposed to inappropriate content and behaviour online. Parents and carers should also monitor their child's online activity.
An explanation of the specific age rating symbols used on the PlayStation®Store for games is set out here:
