Submission + - Left 4 Dead 2 refused classification (banned in Au (

jaxxa writes: Valve 's highly-anticipated sequel, Left 4 Dead 2, has just been refused classification in Australia.

I imagine that this will go to the Classification Review Board for appeal. This highlights the continued impact of a lack of an R18+ rating for computer games in Australia. If this decision stands, Australian adults will find it significantly more difficult to play the much anticipated zombie shooter sequel.

This follows from some reports from earlier this week that little progress has been made on releasing the discussion paper for the introduction of an R18+ rating in Australia.

There is very little future in being right when your boss is wrong.
