Default L4D 2 banned in Aussie

I can't believe no one has posted this.

Left 4 Dead 2 has been refused classification by Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification, effectively banning Valve's co-op shooter sequel from sale in Oz.

So glad I don't live in a country that does crap like this. Yea for more government control, telling adults what that can't do for entertainment.

Just to sell, hopefully.

As I said on the main L4D thread though, I do wonder if Steam will let you activate a copy you import. Would that count as a "sale"?

They will probably just censor it, and since Steam knows where you are, it will be impossible to play uncensored without pirating and using other servers.

I still can't believe Aussie doesn't have an R18 rating. The mind boggles.

You gotta love those Aussie politicians...they're too busy spending time in the legal brothels to play games like Left 4 Dead.
