Yesterday we told you about Singapore’s ban on Bioware’s upcoming Xbox 360 game Mass Effect due to a scene which contains “lesbian intimacy,” but now it looks like the Board of Film Censors has changed their minds, giving Singaporean gamers what they really want.
USA Today says that their ratings board will selectively use games ratings to enable highly anticipated titles to come to market while they get their new ratings system figured out. Mass Effect was given an M18 rating and the green light to hit retail shelves.
A statement from the BFC says that “this will allow such games to enter the market with immediacy and give the industry and members of the public a better understanding of the benefits of the proposed games classification system.”
Yay! Alien girl-on-girl for the whole world!
