PEGI and EAN Support Added for PAL Games

We've added support on our site for PEGI ratings on all European (PAL) video games.

Users can add the PEGI rating (3, 7, 12, 16, or 18) to any game on the site. We will be gradually adding some PEGI data to the lists too.

At the same time we've added support for European UPC codes, referred to as EAN.

Users can add EAN numbers to any PAL product on the site. Once we have more EAN data, this will allow PAL users to search by EAN and quickly find games and use the built-in UPC scanner too.

See an example of the data on Fallout 4 PS4 page.

Lastly, we added support for Japanese CERO game ratings as well and Japanese UPC codes too.

Website Outage: January 29th 2020

January 30th 6:10 AM - The site is back to full functionality again. We are doing a postmortem to resolve the root causes of this issue to prevent it from happening again in the future. Thank you for your patience, sorry for any inconvenience.

January 29th 10:00 PM - The site is working for most requests for now. 99% of user requests will work just fine but requests might be slightly slower. Some database intensive features may not work (price guide downloads, collection importing, etc). We are still working on a more permanent fix and hope to have it up on the site soon.

January 29th 5:00 PM - We are aware of the website outage and we are looking into a fix now. Hopefully the site will be back up shortly. It appears there was a database and memory crash that caused these problems.
