Australia Scared of Zombies, Bans House of the Dead
Posted on Wednesday, August 24 @ 15:40:46 PST by Sebastian_MossSEGA Australia has confirmed that House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut has been refused a classification in Australia.
The PS3 game was supposed to launch on October 27th with Playstation Move support, but the Australian Classification Board gave the game a 'Refused Classification' rating.
SEGA responded to the middle finger from the board:
Darren MacBeth, managing director of SEGA Australia, continued:
It is also interesting to note that the original Wii game was classified as MA15+ in December 2008, so the board seems to believe the two new levels make the game too dangerous for the Australian public. In other news, the board recently rated films such as I Scored a Soccer Mom! Vol 7 and 8th Street Latinas Vol 7, along with films that have far more NSFW titles.
Luckily, the Attorneys General have reached an in-principle agreement to introduce an R18+ category for videogames in the country, but they said it won't be more lenient than the current one.
