The Australian classification board is basicly making people in Australia torrent the game now so by banning AvsP they are basicly non intentionaly supporting torrenting

I’m wondering hopefully some one can tell

Can’t they buy the American version for ps3 or pc??

I only say ps3/pc because I heard the 360 is region locked

I feel sorry for them here on neo im always reading how Australians have to pay more for the games and then they are edited censored versions

There must be a way they can get them without having to go thru all this trouble

I believe you mean piracy as torrenting is not a verb. I think the more accurate statement is that because of the Australian government's stance on entertainment, more people pirate than pay for games that are banned. And jdj1976, my advice is to look into import laws for Australia. If I were an evil, controlling government that didn't let citizens make their own choices, I would also ban importing the titles too. If that is the case, then Honor has a point.

Either way, that's the government that they elected, so its really not anybody's fault but the Australian peoples. So, it sounds like they should get new people into government and change the law. Considering adults are not even given a choice shows how much the Australian government disdains its own citizens. Granted, the American side of it is a little better, but we have our own problems with censorship.

“It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creeds into law if it acquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young, and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.” - Robert Heinlein

rumors suggesting the contrary.

hippo-news idiots thought crappy MW2 is going to make all other follow suite , who cares about MW2 and their stupid IWnet anyway , I just can't stand this every single news post it's half a talk about MW2 no dedicated servers and EXPECTANCE that all will follow suite , MW2 is a crap game. I loved cod1 cod2 cod4 ... if you must know , that' was my favourite FPS , i wasn't an Unreal , Quake nor CS guy , I was COD guy , and MW2 is basically bullcrap honestly.

who the heck made up this rumors anyway.

Hah, all the australians have to do is import a UK or US version of the game. If they have problems with the disc region, they should get the PC version and install an extra DVD drive, setting it to the US or UK region.

The problem for us autralian voters i that we only have two parties that can become government, and both dont care about adult gamers. Its stupid and yes, it does promote pirating. By the way, the witcher was a good game . But with the ps3 being region unlocked its pretty easy now to get it from over seas, for half the price it would cost for a new game over here anyway. (see, now the labor government is encouraging foreign exports, destroying our precious economy) eh. damn the aco.

Hee Hee...,with the strong Aussie dollar, we ought to consider importing video games from the United States to Australia at the fraction of cost of buying edited and expensive games from Aussie retailers such as EB and GAMES...

Criticising about stubborn Aussie government and its side-kick, the OFLC???

I've had enough of those stuffs......
