Australia finally taking a tentative step into the current world (R18+ related)

   0


Yes, you read that right, and it's not some gamer group trying for a seat in Parliament or anything. On Tuesday, the Queensland government recently created a petition on their website asking for residents to sign their interest for the amendment to the current classification act regarding video games and the R rating.

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Classification of Computer Games and Images Act 1995 is currently out of step with the wishes of the electorate.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that it be amended to permit computer games to receive the R18+ classification when they have been refused classification under the Commonwealth Act.


This is pretty unbelievable, particularly after the recent comments from our great friend Michael Atkinson. I urge all Queensland 'toids to sign the petition, and spread the word. Hopefully this is the first real step in an issue that should have being fixed years ago.
