AvP Refused Classification In Australia

The Australian ratings board has refused to classify Aliens vs Predator for sale in Australia, making it illegal to sell Rebellion's upcoming faction-based shooter down under, reports Kotaku Australia (thanks Michael). Sega has already indicated they are committed to the mature themes of the Alien and Predator brands and will not edit the game for sale in Germany. True to that, Kotaku has a quote from Sega that does not mention cutting gore from the game as one of the options they are exploring: "SEGA Australia can today confirm that the initial submission of Aliens vs Predator has been Refused Classification by the Classification Operations Board of Australia. We will continue to investigate all options available to us, including the possibility of appeal." Computer and Video Games has a confirmation from Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley they won't be editing the game:

Rebellion is disappointed that its upcoming title Aliens vs. Predator has been banned in Australia. However, as we understand the law in that country the authorities had no choice as we agree strongly that our game is not suitable for game players who are not adults.

The content of AvP is based on some of the most innovative and iconic horror movies, and as such we wanted to create a title that was true to the source material. It is for adults, and it is bloody and frightening, that was our intent. We will not be releasing a sanitized or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices."
