Australia's Ratings System Is A Bit Of A Mess.

The system does not allow for an "adults-only" rating in video games. Sony Computer Entertainment Australia's Michael Ephraim has spoken out against this.

"Gaming has moved on, the choice of content has moved on and I think it is time Australia gets in step with the rest of the world and has an R rating classification," he told the Associated Press earlier today in Sydney.

"I think it is just giving people choice. You give people choice for movies, books, whatever. Why aren't you giving them choice for gaming?

"The Government needs to move on, to stop thinking that gaming is for kids, gaming has grown up. Eight to 88 (year olds) play games now ... the average age of a gamer is something like 24 years old."

Alas, it seems Australia's constantly in a struggle with its government to get this thing changed. Here's hoping the support of a platform holder can make the difference. Maybe it's time that Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony actually team up for a common goal, and put the pressure of their respective organisations behind getting this nonsense fixed.
