Oh, snap! After being denied OFLC classification in Australia for their upcoming game Aliens vs. Predator, game developer Rebellion re-submitted it to the OFLC’s review board. They had originally refused to censor the game, essentially guaranteeing that it would never see an Australian release if the appeal failed, which seemed incredibly likely.
The kicker: they actually won. See what they had to say about it after the jump.
Darren Macbeth, Sega Australia’s general manager:
It is with great pleasure that we announce the success of our appeal. We are particularly proud that the game will be released in its original entirety, with no content altered or removed whatsoever. This is a big win for Australian gamers. We applaud the Classification Review Board on making a decision that clearly considers the context of the game, and is in line with the modern expectations of reasonable Australians.
The game will carry an MA15+ rating, the highest rating allowed in Australia under the current (broken) system. Yay! Maybe now Australia can get a patch to fix their castrated Left 4 Dead 2…?
