NEWS.com.au has a story about the Australian OFLC's refusal to classify Silent Hill: Homecoming, meaning the just-released survival/horror sequel cannot be sold down under (story). They say game retailers in Australia are advising customers to "wait out" the ban in hopes an edited version is released. They also report, "Staff at EB Games and Game stores said customers who had pre-ordered the game would be refunded if the title remained banned." The article also discusses the possibility of the addition of an adults-only R18+ rating, expressing hopes that this will possibly be redressed at a meeting in November. On a related note, IGN has details on what exactly the OFLC found so objectionable about the game, which apparently involves gore and power tools.
