Australia Finally Makes 18+ Rating a Reality

Published on June th, 2012

For the past few years, there’s been an increasing amount of cases regarding Mature rated games being banned from hitting Australia’s shores. There have been just as many, if not more, cases involving publishers having to tone down the violence in their games in order to be sold in the Australia market. After decades of not having an Adult Rating for their videogames, Australian officials have finally approved the sale of adult targeted games by wearing a heretofore non-existant 18+ rating. Grown up gamers across the continent are surely partying their asses off for getting something they’ve been begging their government for. Up until today the highest rating allowed to be sold in Australia was 15+. Welcome to the modern era of gaming you violence obsessed Aussies, you. Now go get your sex and murder on.
