Today, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition went on sale in Australia. But if you go into an EB Games and try and buy it, you'll be told that you can't.
The reason: EB Games, which has an exclusive on the game's physical release in Australia, accidentally printed R18+ stickers on the game. The Bulletstorm remaster was actually rated MA15+ by the Classification Board in early November, so there's no concern about the game being banned or anything like that.
But ratings are a binding matter. A reader and EB Games staffer both confirmed to Kotaku Australia that the game can't legally be sold until the retailer puts new overlays or stickers on the box displaying the correct rating, something that could happen either later this afternoon or early tomorrow.
So if you were going to go in store to pick up a copy of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, don't. Or at least if you're going to, give your local EB store a call first - just so you know whether they're allowed to sell you the game first.
Update: EB Games has provided us with a statement:
We received Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition with the incorrect classification. We take classification very seriously. As such the game won’t be available for sale in-store until it has been re-stickered with the correct classification.
