There is an R18+ rating for films but not video games, which means for any video games fall over the MA15+ classification is automatically RC (Refused classification) in other word, banned.
Many video games in R18 category overseas aren't available in Australia.
Also, some games rated R18 in other countries are rated MA15+ in Australia (lowering the age limit).
Here's a good news for mature gamers who wish to have wider choices of games, South Australia may be the first state in Australia to have R18+ games. And to make life easier, SA is considering scrapping MA15+ rating.
SA supports R18+ games but only if MA15+ is scrapped (SMH, 29 April 2011)
