The ABC are reporting another new twist in the ongoing saga of videogame classification in Australia, with South Australian Attorney-General John Rau saying that the SA Government will support an R18+ rating for videogames, but also stipulating that he wants to abolish the MA15+ category, leaving only the softer M classification for mature, teen-rated games.
He says he hopes the states and territories will also adopt the position when they discuss classifications in July.

"I will push for the South Australian position on MA15+ games to be adopted nationally, but if it isn't, I'm prepared to go it alone," he said.

Mr Rau says it would change the system to provide G, PG, M and R18+ classifications.

"There has to be a clear difference between what adults can get and what children can get," he said.

"At the moment the MA15+ classification is like a crossover point between what is acceptable and what is unacceptable.
Oddly -- despite the stated goal of greater clarity -- there's no mention of introducing this reform to classification of other forms of media such as movies, television and print.

Nevertheless, it's a reasonable side-note to the debate and most gamers would likely agree, another step toward the right direction.
