Australian R18+ Game Rating Takes Effect

hypnosec (2231454) writes "The R18+ game rating has gone live in Australia making way for gaming companies to sell and import titles that were otherwise not allowed. The new rating signals to a couple of conclusions that can be easily drawn: it is illegal to rent or sell a ‘high impact’ game to anyone who hasn’t attained the age of 18 and games which were previously not sold for the lack of a valid rating may now be sold under the R18+ rating. The R18+ games rating legislation hit the Australian parliament back in February 2012 after nearly 10 years of negotiations with states as well as the commonwealth."
