R18 game classification in Australia


In a shocking move of common sense, the Australian Senate has made the trivially easy process of importing R18 games into Australia unnecessary. Right?

ABC News carried this at the end of their report:

Provided the states pass complementary legislation, the changes are due to come into effect on January 1.

I've been told on Twitter it's a shoe-in, but I wouldn't get my hopes up yet. Let's just say… past experience with trusting all our different layers of government ;).

I don't play R18 games, but I blogged about it in 2010, complete with a Haruhi/SHUFFLE image. Because I could!
