Our Classification Board has outdone themselves.

No dildo bats or real drugs allowed in this country.

I'm pretty sure you guys have real drugs and real dildos in your country though.

quick question to my fellow Australian friends. Is it possible that you guys can create a US account and download the game over Live and play it still?

Yep you can. Many of us have done so for years. I did it for The Walking Dead when Telltale Games didn't bother to submit the game for classification here because they wanted to avoid our redundant ACB.

Great, glad you guys do have a work around but it is still mess up that Australia impose such stick rules regarding videogames. Since both PS4 and Xbox 1 are offering Day one digital download in concurrent with the retail copies and are both region free, this workaround should be a godsend for you all in Australia, I would guess.

For fuck sake! Knew that bullshit R18+ was too good to be true. Come the fuck on Australia! God dammit.
YoungKingDoran  +   618d ago
I reckon! ... What was the damn point?
AusRogo  +   618d ago
Who wants to bet CoD Ghosts will probably be R18 (not that I *give a shit) Actually swear they're just slapping r18 on MA games.. So frustrated!

CrossingEden  +   618d ago
in australia, the names will be
meth=jeth
cocaine=losaine
weed=keeds
and so on

Australia is a huge nanny state. They banned guns for crying out loud. Not surprised here.
grassyknoll  +   618d ago
I hope that was sarcasm.
Silkside  +   618d ago
They didn't ban guns here you fucken dumb shit, they regulated it so you couldn't just go to the corner shop and buy one with no background checks.

You still can get a gun license over here, you just need background checks and take a written test on gun safety.

IMO this was a great regulation change.

Just import or create a fake US account for PS3 or XBL

Easy fix
jade0732  +   618d ago
Yes! It easy enough to create an account, but not so easy to get some US Microsoft points to buy the darn thing! And, as far as importing it! I think it might be region locked?
jade0732  +   618d ago
I went to Amazon to see if they had it, but unfortunately they didn't I also checked Play-Asia and eBay, but with no luck!

It looks like we might have to wait for these dum asses to get the shit together and release the darn game already... Hope it will be soon!

What was the point of the R18+ rating, if this banning still happens. Far out haha
TrevorPhillips  +   618d ago
I'm from Sydney and I am outraged about this BS! Bloody AUS Government!

Streuth cobber, what a bunch of drongo's. Makes you wanna stoke up the Barbie and chuck on some dingo brained politicians. Get some Sheila's round and crack open a tinny, you'll feel ripper in no time.

MP's, what a bunch of dags.

(sorry to all my Australian cousins, just joshing with ya).
