Default Looks like Australia will be getting HL2 after all

http://www.oflc.gov.au/content.html?...&record=198493

After so much doubt, so many speculations, the Australians can now breathe easily again. Half-Life 2 got the rating +15 years! HL2 got the rating +18 in most other countries around the world, but as you may know, this rating would have made it impossible for HL2 to get on the shelves in AU. So good for the austries and justice has prevailed!

People in Australia actually thought they wouldnt be able to buy the game? Cant believe some actually thought valve would miss out on a few millions $$$ and rampant bootleggs by not cutting or getting around a few things to get a proper rating.
