    R18+ Finally passed in QLD

    After a bizarre day where those tuning in had to deal with discussion over court transcriptions and fencing laws. After a false alarm where one staffer in the Attorney General’s office accidentally sent a (the wrong) press release before the vote was taken, Queensland has finally joined the rest of Australia — and the Western world — by passing R18+ legislation at a state level.

    “The introduction of this classification should be welcome news for parents, who will now have more control over the games their children are playing,” said Jarrod Bleijie, Attorney General for Queensland, in a pre-prepared statement.

    “I encourage parents to be guided by these classifications, as I’m sure many are unaware of the levels of violence and adult material contained in some computer games.

    “This system has worked with films for a long time and it makes sense for computer games to be treated in the same way.

    “At the Standing Council of Attorney’s General last year, it was decided to adopt a national approach for computer game classification.

    “By coming into line with the rest of the country, we can prevent the games from being bought interstate and sold illegally in Queensland.”

    Finally, it’s over. All that’s required is for the Governor to sign off on the legislation, which should take no less than two or three weeks.

    Campbell Newman is an idiot, but the floods have played a big part in it as well, that was more important & I can agree with that. People having no home is more important then a rating system for a game.

    I thought everyone would assume I was talking about GOW Ascension, yeah we aren't that backwards we have the series. As for MK I was just letting everyone know the news I have found out working as an EB Manager.
