Why are Aussies so prude? The game doesn't have blood. Is it because of swearing maybe?

Implied sexual violence which was ironically implied with a bit of blood..

They have come out and said on twitter and on this site that there will be blood in the game. I can see why they have reclassified the game. Can't wait till 27th May.

They aren't prude, the government just banned the games until recently, the R18+ is fairly recent. At least now they get the games (later and more expensive nonetheless).

Overpriced consoles, overprices games, overpriced accessories, online lags, unnecessary censors, crappy and capped internet providers...Yes life is hard in here

Now expecting a censored version for Europe.

As long as Australians can play it and it isn't outright banned, that's a good thing. Australian players need a break, maybe using that R18+ classification will (in due time) bring a calm to the ban hammer.

australian players need a break from the ridiculous prices on games. my special edition of infamous second son is costing me $115. only because im a big fan of the infamous games, is why im buying it new. any other games i will wait for pre-owned copies of nearly anything.

I could be wrong but don't we / Australian's, have a R / 18 classifications now!
At leased no-one gets to tell me (36yo) I'm not allowed to play it at all now. 😊
