New R18+ Bill To Go Before Australian Parliament In February
Are you an Australian who’s tired of importing your “Mature” rated games? Well, you might be in luck. A new bill is going before the Australian Parliament that could finally get R+18 games on store shelves and off the banned list. Australian Federal Minister for Home Affairs, Jason Clare plans to introduce the bill during the first session in parliament this year, expected to commence February 7th.
While the process is a bit long and time consuming, the purpose of the bill is for Australia to get an equivalent to the Our “ESRB “M” and Europe’s “PEGI 18.” Which would be great, because the system they have right now makes game companies censor out or completely cut out parts of their games if it isn’t satisfactory to the rating board. I hope the bill gets passed, I mean “What the fudge, you crocksucker!” is only funny a few times. So if you’re an Australian and want to play gruesome and graphic games like the rest of us, send an email or call your local representative.
