MMOs will now be classified in Australia in the same manner as single-player games, the Sydney Morning Herald’s reported this morning, and retailers will no longer be able to sell online games that haven’t been rated by the OFLC.

The move directly affects sales of the likes of World of Warcraft and Warhammer Online, which never applied for OFLC classification as they don’t contain a single-player element.

Just ban everything, Australia. It’d be easier.
