Gametraders is launching a nation-wide mass petition to bring in an R18+ rating for the gaming industry. The petition will be held in each of their 46 stores across Australia and online in the hope of bringing fairness to the classification of the entertainment industry.
"The advantages of an R18+ rating will mean adult Australian gamers can have access to content and games only available overseas. Adults should have the choice of what they can and can't see. During releases of such titles as Grand Theft Auto IV, a number of our potential customers imported the game because the Australian version was modified to comply with the MA15+ rating restrictions.
This of course affects our sales as our customers revert to importing to get the "original" version of the title," said Chad Polley, Gametraders’ National Marketing Manager.
