Australia will get the un-edited version of Aliens vs Predator. Congratulations!
From Darren Macbeth, Sega Australia’s GM: “It is with great pleasure that we announce the success of our appeal. We are particularly proud that the game will be released in its original entirety, with no content altered or removed whatsoever. This is a big win for Australian gamers. We applaud the Classification Review Board on making a decision that clearly considers the context of the game, and is in line with the modern expectations of reasonable Australians.”
And in somewhat related news, there seems to be a lot of R18+ buzz going on, so perhaps we’ll be seeing some change to the rating systems in the next year.
