On AU Games Classification

Australian Classification Board Speaks On Games, R18+ & Fallout 3 on Kotaku Australia has a Q&A with the folks in charge of censoring media content in Australia after Fallout 3's recent brush with prohibition (story) and subsequent censorship for sale down under (story). Interesting topics include whether the board plays the games it rates, the legality of importing banned games, specifics about the drug references that got Fallout 3 in trouble, and a few questions about the R18+ rating that many are hoping will be added to the system to allow adults to buy games that are prohibited under current guidelines.

Aye voting is compulsory, its a choice between a kick in the balls or a shovel to the face. Either way you vote you lose.

As for the R18+ classification, I expect it will happen in the next year or so. There appears to only be the AG in SA holding it off at the moment.

Still, R18 or not, the price of games here really needs to be looked at. The price point at the moment is still only encouraging piracy for those that don't know how to import or buy online.
