According to iTWire, "Attorney General Nicola Roxon has confirmed that previously banned games that would have been rated R18+ will now be able to be released, under the new legislation".
PALGN never strayed from the position that an R18+ rating is about helping parents in understanding which games are suitable for over 18s and which games are not.
Mark Serrels, editor of Kotaku Australia, says "an R18+ category has been a long time coming. We need an R18+ rating so parents are aware of what games are suitable for children and what games aren't".
The PALGN community lead the R18+ charge, so while the raging political debate in Canberra continues, itâ€™s disappointing to hear that the coalition's move to send the legislation to an inquiry will mean the change is even further delayed.
