The forever long Video games vs. Australia dispute may finally be reaching a close. Australia just announced that they are proposing to add a new rating system which will restrict minors from buying adult games. More info after the break!
That rating is much like the United States ‘M’ rating, except the age is 18. If passed, the following Australian ratings will be as follows:
- MA 15+
- R 18+
This new ‘R’ rating has been proposed by Brendan O’Connor and he will meet with the federal government in July to decide whether this new rating should be implemented.
