Yesterday GamePolitics broke the news that the British Board of Film Classification had issued an 18 rating to Madworld, Sega’s upcoming Wii gore-fest.
In doing so, the BBFC ignored a demand from Mediawatch-UK that Madworld be banned in the British market.
Spong is now reporting that John Beyer, head of the media watchdog group, has expressed disappointment over the BBFC’s decision to approve Madworld for sale:
I’m disappointed but not surprised. I think my view is pretty well known. It’s what I expected.
