The Sydney Morning Herald has word that, as expected, legislation is under consideration by the Australian Parliament to introduce an R18+ rating to allow the sale of games restricted to adults. They outline the situation nicely here: "Currently the highest rating is MA15+ which can mean that games for sale to adults only overseas have to be modified to meet the Australian rating requirements or not be sold at all. The new laws would bring computer games in line with the classification system for films and make Australia more consistent with international standards." On a related note, there's a short guest blog on Aussie site Player Attack written by Jason Clare, the Home Affairs Minister who wrote the legislation.
