This is getting ridiculous. The OFLC’s refused Aliens Vs Predator classification in Australia, meaning the game will be barred from sale.

Said publisher Sega in a statement to Gamespot: “SegaAustralia can today confirm that the initial submission of Aliens vs Predator has been refused classification by the Classification Operations Board of Australia. We will continue to investigate all options available to us, including the possibility of appeal.”

Why was it banned?

“The game contains first-person perspective, close-up depictions of human characters being subjected to various types of violence, including explicit decapitation and dismemberment as well as locational damage such as stabbing through the chest, mouth, throat, or eyes,” said the board’s report.
