MA+15 be less violent than M? Bungie has said that the story is darker this time, though.

Or does a finished copy now exist?

@Icewake your correct. M is more violent than MA+15.

A quick google search shows that M is for over 16s only
And MA+15 is for anyone who is accompanied by an adult.

Finished, just polish and bug finds/fixes until release.

Its misleading then and should not have been approved because its the other way around, Halo 3 to be more violent than the previous ones but then I wouldn't call it violent as such since its not based on realism its all scifi lol.

I wouldn't take it seriously even if it was reduced in rating (which apparently it isn't, from the last two comments). Videogame ratings are even more superfluous than movie ratings, and standards for both tend to shift over time.
For example, a movie can still secure a 12 rating even with a couple of uses of the F-word, or occasional use of the word s**t, something which would've instantly made a movie 15 only 5-6 years ago. And movies are often made U now, when they previously would've been PG, simply by putting the message "contains mild peril and fantasy violence" in the trailer.

m is worse then ma15+ and standards are allways changing, rated r movies now 10 years ago would have been rated nc17 or worse.
