I received the comment from an approver before:

"Ratings directly from the rating organization websites are not accepted as they have proven to be unreliable."

I don't know what happened at other regions, but Korean rating organization GRAC has the exclusive governmental authority empowered by law of that country: one game must be rated by GRAC before being sold there. Therefore the official rating inquiring website should be reliable enough. Besides, the website is well functioning and maintained well in my opinion.

One thing is their authority on actually rating the games, their online database is entirely another. PEGI has been repeatedly noted to be incorrect, I believe ESRB as well.

So what do you think of the ratings on Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation official website?

Ratings from official websites and store pages are generally accepted.
