R18+ Guidelines released, ever so close!

R18+ guidelines released, are we close to R18+ games in Australia?

Australia's Federal Attorney-General and Minister for Home Affairs, Brendan O'Connor has released his draft of proposed guidelines for R18+ games in Australia. The guidelines detail what is and what is not, in Brendan's belief, acceptable for the R18+ rating.

The Gillard Government wants to provide better guidance for parents and remove unsuitable material from children and teenagers. The introduction of an R18+ classification will help achieve that and will also bring Australia into line with comparable nations. This issue has been on the table for many years, without the necessary progress to make a change. We've recently seen several states publicly express their support for an adult only rating for games and I'm keen to reach a unanimous decision at the July meeting.

The proposed guidelines for the MA15+ and R18+ ratings are available here.
