Its no secret that the Australian video game classification system is backwards. Earlier this week ,Valves blockbuster Left 4 Dead 2 was refused classification in Australia. A recent comment from Valves own VP of marketing Doug Lombardi has told Shacknews that “everyone at Valve is pretty bummed”.
Well yeah… so are we.
“We were surprised to hear of this news yesterday,” the executive informed us. “Obviously, everyone at Valve is pretty bummed.”
“It would be a shame if folks in Australia, or anywhere else, are unable to purchase Left 4 Dead 2 because of a ratings issue,” Lombardi lamented.”
From those comments its hard to say whether an altered version of the game is in the works and if it will be resubmitted to the OFLC. All we know for sure is that right now, Australia is not getting Left 4 Dead 2 and that my friends, is a bummer.
