Mortal Kombat has been refused classification in Australia, meaning that the game is effectively banned in that territory. Which will piss of a lot of Aussie Gamers, but will add another game to the list of banned ones.
I think there will be a lot of importing than.
wow this sucks
This just means its a good mortal kombat game. Its not mortal kombat unless its banned in australia. Thats what i always say.
Sucks for them.

What's that? I couldn't hear you over the swarm of deadly snakes and spiders trying to fight their way into my house. :D
HAHA! I stand corrected.
Don't forget those floodwaters, fire and cyclones making a nuisance of themself -.-

If you have a ps3 you can import the game . If you have the xbox 360 unlucky its region locked.
haha... there is a trick there. It PAL here in Australia! You can buy 360 games from UK. And they are even cheaper than here... A 360/PS3 games cost around 99 AUSD and in ebay from UK I get them from around 60 AUSD kinda like in America... So it was always importing for me. Unless its a game I want day one, so I just pre-order it and pay full price >_>.
Amazing, They've managed to Ban Mortal Kombat in Australia, yet the previous versions were just as gruesome and yet they we're not banned.. Ridiculous.
Yeah our rating system is extremely inconsistent due to the lack of an R18+ rating. The reason games get banned here is because they all have to be funneled into an MA 15+ rating. Its stupid and almost everyone who has even a slight interest in gaming has voiced their concern over the lack of the R18+ rating which is there for films and music etc but not for games due to a bunch of old Christians running our government and instead of letting us adults make a choice on what we want, these old buffoons do it for us.
Here is a list of reasons why: http://ca.kotaku.com/577058... 60 Fatalities in this son of a bitch!!!!
is there anything else that isn't banned in australlia?
I was personally surprised God of War 3 wasn't banned, not too many games actually do get banned but when they do, even if I had no intention of playing them, its RAAAGGEEE TIME
That sucks for Australia
Big deal. Just means they are making Australian retail suffer, as many as well as myself will order the game from overseas. And China/Hong Kong are the ones who are already offering these games for sometimes half what Aussie retail chains charge. I buy from both, as I couldn't afford to buy all my games from Australian stores, that at best offer a new title for $79, but in most cases are $89 or $99.
