Is Sony's God Of War III development team concerned about their game being refused classification in Australia? Apparently, yes.
That was the question Screen Play put to GOWIII's art director Sean Cunningham today. Sean's response?
"There is (concern)," says Sean. "We try to push the boundaries a little bit. (But) we’ve had meetings and discussions and internally we all have a good gauge on what’s 'too far'."
Sean goes on to discuss how his studio works with the various ratings boards around the world to ensure the content of their game falls in line with the rating they want. And obviously, they don't want to be banned.
He adds, "Also visually, everyone’s really excited. The disembowelment of the centaur, ripping Helios’s head off, the reaction from the floor has been amazing. Everybody in the studio is very happy."
They'll be even happier if such scenes manage to qualify for an MA15+ rating in Australia.
We've asked Sony Australia for comment and will let you know what they say.
God-awful trouble for Sony [Screen Play]
