inFamous 2 Rated Early, Makes it Past Australian Censors

March 30, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

As one of the strictest ratings boards in the world, the Australian Classification Board has been responsible for numerous games having their content cut or toned down if they are deemed too violent for the country. If publishers don’t comply, their games are simply banned outright, something that has recently lead to much controversy. Luckily for Australian PlayStation 3 owners, inFamous 2 has survived the ban-hammer, and has been rated by the board.

Sucker Punch’s highly anticipated sequel has been rated M, meaning that “The content is moderate in impact”. The original inFamous also received an M, and, luckily, neither game had any content cut.

With more sympathetic politicians gaining power in Australia, its only a matter of time before the classification board is changed, and the rules relaxed, but in the meantime, it’s good to see that Australians will be able to play inFamous 2.
