In Australia, gamers continue to petition their government for an R18+ rating.
As GamePolitics has reported, one man – South Australian Attorney General Michael Atkinson – has so far successully blocked the R18+.
That being the case, gamers Down Under plan to take their protest directly to Atkinson on March 4th – and in costume as well.
According to R18games:
Gametraders is organising a rally to support an R18+ rating for video games in South Australia. The rally will take place at 1pm on the 4th of March, on the steps of the Adelaide Parliament House. As you all know, Adelaide is the home of the South Australian Attorney-General, Michael Atkinson, chief opponent of an R18+ rating for games in Australia.
However, it appears that some gamers are concerned that protesting in costume will make their position seem frivolous; that aspect of the protest is under review:
It’s clear from the feedback… that a lot of people have some concerns about the cosplay nature of the rally. Gametraders has contacted [R18games] to say they will be issuing a further statement shortly…
