A recent poll carried out by the Australian Federal Home Affairs department for its introductory report into its public discussion has revealed that most of the Australians support an R18+ rating for videogames.
For months, games vendor, EB persuaded consumers at its outlets to support R18+ for games by asking them to take part in the public discussion process.
In preliminary data released last week, a massive 98.2% out of the 58,589 submissions to a public consultation supported the move.
Out of the 59,678 applications that they got, the Federal Home Affairs Department discovered that 58,589 were in favour of an alteration in ratings, while about 1,089 were against it
Though it's searching for Australians, a successive meeting of Australia's Censorship Ministers botched to make advancement on the subject.
Federal Home Affairs Minister, Brendan O'Connor said that further research is needed before any law is passed.
O'Connor said, "Censorship ministers have not yet made a decision on whether or not an R18+ classification for computer games should be introduced and have requested further analysis of community and expert views".
He added that it is not only the weight of figures, which requires to be mulled over. It is also the power of the arguments on both the sides.
