Jason Clare, the Minister for Home Affairs has just announced that R18+ for games is set to become a reality, after legislation successfully passing through the Federal Parliament, having just gone through the Senate without amendment.
The next stage for the R18+ classification is for each separate state to pass their own complimentary legislation, since classification remains a state issue.
According to Jason Clare’s website, this means that, subject to the separate state legislation, we could be on schedule to see our first R18+ for games become a reality by January 1st 2013.
No more will we have these stupid issues where some games are censored and/or banned while big games like GTA are pushed down to a 15 rating.
And finally I'll be able to play a version of Left4Dead 2 that doesn't have the zombies disappearing BEFORE they hit the ground.
