Tl;dr

All states and territories have accepted an R18+ rating for video games.

Except NSW.

Doesn't that mean people can just buy games in another state and take them into NSW?

We would have had it ages ago if it wasn't for Michael fucking Atkinson, the former SA attorney general. Every state needs to agree for it to be passed, and SA was the only one stopping us before.

Invis, NSW has to agree to it or no state will get the rating. But it looks like a definite yes.

That's fucked. At least once the bridge between Aus and NZ is built you can just walk over and buy whatever you want. Or swim. Or jetski.

I can't believe you guys are only just about to get the 18 rating for games.

We've had it over here for idk how many years, since I was little most likely. They even want to introduce a 21 age for some games over here.

Even over here we've had the higher ratings for a long time. Darn their angry old people.

It's why our shit is so watered down and crap Van.

I've even rant on it before on a local radio station with Mainsk8er1 before.
It's fucked.

It's because the SA guy is homosexual and like 80, he thought it was bad.
Otherwise we would have had it years ago.

Funny thing is, the majority of games DO get into Aus, just under a 15+ rating.

This appeal will not only let in all games, but it'll actually bump up some currently existing MA15+ games to R18+, enforcing the standard that parents shouldn't be buying their brats these games.

From what I heard The NSW or whatever guy now wants to wait until he can see more information on it. Because he's been in bed with the SA guy.

It's obvious.
