When it was finally announced that R18+ legislation had been passed in Queensland, there was only one step left to take before the new legislation finally came into being — the Governor of Queensland had to sign off on the act. Now we can officially announce that the Classification of Computer Games and Images and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2013 has been signed. R18+ games can now officially be bought and sold in QLD.
It’s been a particularly long road for gamers in Queensland, but this is perfect timing. The first R18+ game is due to go on sale March 7. If retailers get themselves into gear, you may be able to buy the game in your home state!
