New South Australian Attorney-General Supports Adult Rating For Games


Posted March 25, 2010 - By Jake Gaskill

New Australian Attorney-General Supports Mature Game RatingEarlier this week, South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson, a staunch opponent of violent video games and key obstructionist to Australia’s adoption of an R18+ rating for video games, resigned. While proponents of an adult rating for games were understandably pleased with this news, it raised an important question: Will Atkinson’s replacement support the new mature rating?

Well, according to reports, the new South Australian Attorney-General, MP John Rau, does in fact support an R18+ rating for games. Rau spoke with Gamers4Croydon, a political party that has been instrumental in bringing the mature game rating issue to national prominence, and indicated that “a lack of an R18+ for games seemed absurd, and that it was really just common sense to introduce it, considering the vast majority of adult content is already available under the MA15+ classification,” News.com.au reports.

The long overdue R18+ rating will be up for consideration in late April, which could mean the all too common “Australia Bans X Game” headline could soon be a thing of the past.

Thanks for the tip Manne!
