Australian gamers were given an early Christmas present today as the Classification Review Board reversed the decision of the Office of Film and Literature Classification to Refuse Classification to Sega’s upcoming video game, Aliens Vs Predator. Games that are Refused Classification in Australia are banned from sale.
Sega of Australia issued the following statement: “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”.Based on the cult sci-fi action films, Aliens Vs Predator is expected to be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 18 2010.
