Halo 4 reclassified for New Zealand

When Halo 4 was released in New Zealand earlier this week, copies of the game were labeled with the Australian "M" for mature rating certificate.

Under the New Zealand Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act (1993), games that are rated by British or Australian ratings boards in a way that declares they have no restricted content (including an Australian M rating) are not required to be classified in this country. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

Well well New Zealand. Seems that your Australian comrades aren't the only ones who have to deal with an inept government, especially when it comes to games and technology.

Us Australians always complain about games prices (rightly so), but I know in New Zealand the prices are even more ridiculous. Just be happy that you guys got Halo 4 first (legitimately of course)>

Changing it to R13 doesn't affect me!
The prices on the other hand...

Prices, perhaps so. Ratings ... no not really.
