Australia All Grown Up
Last year, the Australian God's of censorship finally caved in and the region was blessed with its R18+ rating for video games. Now, the country just passed the new bill, which ends the controversial ban on 18-rated games. Australia's video game classification ratings are now in the same boat as films and TV shows.

Minister for Home Affairs Jason Clare said: "The R 18+ category will inform consumers, parents and retailers about which games are not suitable for minors to play, and will prevent minors from purchasing unsuitable material. The reforms also mean that adults are able to choose what games they play within the bounds of the law."

Hear that gamers in Australia? Break open the champagne... Hm, on second thought hod the champagne, because the first wave of R18+ titles probably won't be available until January 1, 2013. Still, better late than never, eh?
