God of War: Ascension rated R18+ in Australia; cannot be sold in Queensland

Steve Wright writes, "Kotaku Australia has broken news of God of War: Ascension‘s R18+ rating, and more importantly, its subsequent inability to be sold in Queensland stores this March.

A national R18+ rating for video games exists, but individual Australian states and territories must pass their own legistation to allow games to be sold.

Dammit, never had any problems with past GoW games.

I actually said this a while back. It will be weird when tne ne/t GoW becom es R18+, when you are used to it always being MA15+. Luckily every other state gets it, so it is easily avoided.

Aussies come across as tough people and yet their gaming rating systems treat them like a bunch of little girls.
