Sega wins battle over AvP ban
It is a day to celebrate for Sega, Rebellion and any gamer in Australia who has been itching for a little gore. Despite being previously rejected for its mature content it looks like Alien vs. Predator will get to see the light of day in Australia and will do so completely unedited.
AvP was initially banned from sale in Australia due to its violence and mature content. But the ban was overturned today after review. Sega Australias Darren Macbeth, while speaking with Kotaku, gave the following comments:
"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 be released with a MA15+ rating in its entirety. No edits here. This is a victory for the games developer, Rebellion, who vowed they would not alter their creation. We will keep you informed if we learn anything more on the situation.
