Not around the world. Can't get sh*t in Australia. We still have Kangaroos delivering our movies. VHS tapes in their pouches. Might as well be any way!

Steam's set up box isn't going to change that. That's the Australian cable companies having locked up the market with government blessing, so they don't have to deal with competition. It's not like Valve is going to be able to do anything about that.

Australia is one big fucking nanny state anyway. it's amazing to me that people actually want government to tell them how to live, what to eat, what they can and can't buy. etc.
People don't want that, it's just what happens. Sometimes people that think they know best get in - they tend to be Religious Men or Women with something to prove. We have a lot, and I mean A LOT of lawyers in government.

So why do people allow it? That the state can tell mature adults they can't buy a game for example due to it's content just blows my mind. Much like the New Yorkers who continue to elect idiots like Bloomberg who thinks outlawing sale of coca cola will somehow fight obesity.
