Yeah...MA15+ rules under a new rating.

.

That's all I can see it being, really. I don't think it'll change much of the criteria for games being RC-ed.

.

I could be way wrong, but I guess only time will tell.

What it'll do is allow for a stronger impact of material but the rules will be the same. Honestly very few games that would have been banned would be allowed, probably MK9 and L4D2 but the other stuff ie drugs for reward etc would still be banned.

Nice work Australia.  This should put an end to the dodgy influence over ratings in NZ.  :)

Peace, Love and Games

It's  legal activity. Were as compare with Fallout 3 where you took Morphine which is a controlled substance. 

Even with an R18+ Fallout 3 would have been banned. But L4D2 would have been allowed because infected humans would have been more acceptable within that category.  R18+ is just the same as M15+ but with stronger impacted themes.

They've already agreed to it or the Cth wouldn't have brought in the legislation. The States and Territories have a Classification Enforcement Act which is where the enforcement of the classifications are. The Cth Act just sets up the system.  So if NSW wants to make it illegal to sell a game  classified R18+ they still can but it can be sold in Victoria for example.

Don't think it'll change much - just games that have been getting MA15+ will now get R18+
