Brendan O' Connor took the opportunity to restate his support for an R18+ rating. This final report will be tabled during the SCAG meeting on Friday.
“More than 58,400 people responded to the call for submissions on the proposed new adult only category. That’s an enormous response and I thank everyone who gave their views.”
“Of those who responded, 98.4% voiced support for an R18+ computer game classification.”
“These results reflect the feedback that I and other members of Parliament have received from the community,” Mr O’Connor said.
“Bringing the classification categories for computer games into line with those for films will help Australian parents make informed decisions about the games their children play.
“We want to provide better advice to parents to help remove material from children and teenagers that may contain gratuitous sex, violence or drug use,” Mr O’Connor said.
Again, this confirms what we all knew - the Australian public is firmly, overwhelmingly, in favour of an R18+ rating for video games.
