    Australian gov releases R18+ guideline proposal

    Australia's federal government has released a proposed draft of new guidelines to reform its video game classification system and introduce an R18+ rating.
    Meaning, the country's uncomfortably long struggle to introduce an adult-friendly classification for games may finally reach a conclusion.

    The R18+ rating would allow "virtually no restrictions on the treatment of themes," allow violence to a more liberal degree than the current MA 15+ cap and give the option for sexual activity to be "realistically simulated," according to the draft.

    Australia's Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor says the new rules would "bring Australia into line with comparable nations." The federal government and the attorneys-general (including those opposed to the new rating and the ones who feel the government isn't going far enough) will meet in July, when they are expected to reach a consensus to introduce the R18+ classification.

    Elections are over, no political gain, something don't sit right :p
    But in some serious I think the government are starting to get sick and tired of it always being on the table at the attorney generals meeting. Though it is about damn time we were becoming as bad as Germanys Censorship laws.

    First game to be officially released if this passes to get an R18 will be Gears of War 3 (they had the R18 sticker on the beta which io found rather odd and kinda an impending doom should it once again get pushed back)
