TechnogeekWhile allowing him to write previews and such was still a lapse (which I'm glad to see has been rectified), if that's the worst that can be found, then I may actually be forced to rethink my position on just how terrible video game journalism really is.01/17/2015 - 1:17am

E. Zachary KnightCould also just be a publicity thing. There is that free digital only rating thing the ESRB launched: http://www.esrb.org/ratings/ratings_process.jsp01/16/2015 - 12:35pm
NeenekoThing is, if I recall correctly, the console release would require a separate round through the board anyway, and rating is not free.01/16/2015 - 11:42am
E. Zachary KnightCould have been in pursuit of a possible console release.01/16/2015 - 11:19am
NeenekoWhich kinda makes you wonder why they went for a rating, unless they wanted the AO badge to show how edgy they were.01/16/2015 - 11:11am
Matthew Wilsonno its a indie game. digital only.01/16/2015 - 10:50am
Papa MidnightThere goes any chance of a Console release (in it's current state), or any traditional retailer carrying it.01/16/2015 - 10:50am

NeenekoThough like any grey market transaction, 'nothing to stop' requires a certain amount of sheep buffer.01/16/2015 - 10:38am
E. Zachary KnightMasked, unless the digital store is region locked, there is nothing to stop Australians from getting RC games digitally.01/16/2015 - 10:16am
MaskedPixelanteTraditionally, Aussies just imported banned games from New Zealand. Wonder if that would work in a digital environment.01/16/2015 - 10:12am
Neeneko@Papa Midnight - that would cross import laws, which pretty much make it illegal again. Not to mention region locking and the whole grey market legal issues *blek*01/16/2015 - 9:48am
Matthew Wilson@pm they cant buy it,but they can get it for free. the weird thing about refused classification is that it can not be sold, but it isnt out right banned ether. in thory if the devs were to give it away, the government can not stop them01/16/2015 - 2:10am
Papa MidnightOr, another route: Perhaps a Steam user in America (as an example) gifting a copy to an Australian user?01/15/2015 - 11:44pm
Papa Midnight...and that post raises a question. What's the legality in Australia regarding just obtaining the game from another territory if it has been refused classification and cannot be sold there?01/15/2015 - 11:43pm
Papa MidnightAt least it supports MicroSDs. I'm facing the fact that I'm going to need to upgrade my phone as the Nexus 4 does not have an SD Card slot.01/15/2015 - 11:42pm
WonderkarpRedditor in PCMR contacted Hotline Miami dev about the australia ban. got this response http://i.imgur.com/Z84eDVa.png01/15/2015 - 10:24pm
E. Zachary KnightBecause that would have been the smart thing to do.01/15/2015 - 9:39pm

Matthew Wilsonwtf the bbc is brodcasting a gamming thing on twitch http://www.twitch.tv/bbc5live granted it is not the main one,but still its a bit weird.01/15/2015 - 4:35pm
E. Zachary KnightNeeneko, Right. The AO rating is not legally binding in any way, but console companies and almost all retailers in the US have agreed not to allow them. Stupid. But in Aus. refusal to classify is a legally binding ban on sales.01/15/2015 - 2:31pm
NeenekoI thought AO was still effectivly disallowing sale since no console manufacturer allows them? (though that leaves open PC, but that is often a deathblow in terms of market)01/15/2015 - 2:25pm
Monte@ivresse, there is that whole issue of disposable income. A lot of people can't afford to have multiple systems.01/15/2015 - 12:42pm
Papa MidnightAndrew, that invalidates my last statement then. In that case, it is indeed a bureaucratic body defining that the "average reasonable adult" cannot function as a rational consumer to make the conscious decision to not purchase something they do not like.01/15/2015 - 12:13pm
IvresseRegarding Vita and 3DS - alternatively, get both and get whatever the heck you want, don't limit yourself to one brand ^^01/15/2015 - 12:06pm
Andrew EisenPM - Not quite. Refusing to classify a title means you are saying this cannot be legally sold. An AO rating carries no such weight.01/15/2015 - 11:56am
MaskedPixelantehttp://screencrush.com/spider-man-marvel-avengers-infinity-war/ MOUNTAIN of salt, people.01/15/2015 - 11:45am
Papa MidnightThat being the case, then, it seems that retailers don't believe that the so-called "average reasonable adult" has the ability to make the determination for themselves as to what they will buy and what they will not.01/15/2015 - 11:19am
Papa MidnightIt's slightly difficult to criticise the board, however. I may be mistaken, but the refusal of classification isn't technically an official ban. Instead, it's similar to the ESRB's AO rating whereby retailers just refuse to carry the titles.01/15/2015 - 11:18am
Papa Midnighthttp://arstechnica.com/gaming/2015/01/hotline-miami-2-blocked-from-sale-in-australia-over-implied-rape-scene/01/15/2015 - 11:16am
Papa MidnightFurther details on Hotline Miami 2's classification refusal in Australia. Apparently, it was over an implied rape scene in a cutscene of the game (according to Ars Technica)01/15/2015 - 11:16am
MaskedPixelanteI still think my comment has validity. The Vita is all but dead now, surviving on jRPGs and indie games you can already get on other systems. Get a 3DS, it actually has first party support.01/15/2015 - 10:50am
Infophile@MP: He's actually referring to the choice between the NEW 3DS (over his regular 3DS) and a Vita, which is a little closer. Basically, unless you're a JRPG fan or want off-screen for your PS4, a Vita isn't worth much.01/15/2015 - 5:13am
prh99I guess that's what happens when free speech is just generally agreed to be good, but lacks any firm commitment. Censors worm their way in and carve out arbitrary niches.01/15/2015 - 12:30am
Goth_SkunkZing!01/14/2015 - 11:55pm
WymorenceWell, it was originally a British penal colony. Just looks like all the crooks rose to political power01/14/2015 - 11:50pm
Matthew WilsonI am not shocked. there is no hope for Australia at this point.01/14/2015 - 11:15pm

Papa MidnightSo, despite having an 18+ Rating, and people having the ability to NOT purchase something if they don't want to, "Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number" has been refused classification in Australia. That is the effective equivalent of a ban.01/14/2015 - 10:32pm
Papa MidnightAustralia's at it again!01/14/2015 - 10:31pm
MaskedPixelanteAs someone who has a 3DS and a Vita, get the 3DS. It has much better first party support and isn't fully populated by ports and remakes.01/14/2015 - 10:06pm
ZenBut I feel more like this is the "Gameboy Color" to the original "Gameboy"...some games will be made just for it which will be nice, while others will have "benefits" to being played on the greater hardware like Smash and Majora's Mask.01/14/2015 - 6:52pm
ZenI got a chance a few weeks back to play around with an imported New 3DS XL and Monster Hunter 4. I have to say it is MUCH quicker and the 3D effect works really well now that it can track you. The analog nub worked well too.01/14/2015 - 6:51pm
Andrew EisenI'd say no but I'm an unrepentant Nintendo fanboy so I'm not the best person to ask.01/14/2015 - 6:34pm
Daniel LewisIs it bad that i want to upgrade to a new 3ds rather than get a psvita01/14/2015 - 6:03pm
IanCIn case anyone wondered, the downloadable Wii games are disc images essentially. They still have to switch to Wii mode when they start.01/14/2015 - 4:44pm
E. Zachary KnightOf course, If I had tons of money, that choice would be moot and I would get both.01/14/2015 - 4:30pm
Andrew EisenDepends on how many "Only for New 3DS" games there end up being. So far, Xenoblade is the only one announced and I already own it so New 3DS isn't a must buy for me yet (as attractive as its new features certainly are).01/14/2015 - 4:30pm
E. Zachary KnightMaybe this year will be the year I get a 3DS. Of course, it has tough competition with the Wii U.01/14/2015 - 4:29pm
MaskedPixelanteI dunno, a longer battery life, a camera control nub and better specs that will likely render upcoming games unplayable on older hardware were "must have" enough for me.01/14/2015 - 4:27pm
WonderkarpI'll get the new 3ds eventually. I see no "MUSTHAVE" issues with it. I'm not going to trade in my 3ds xl when I get it cause I need to transfer data. so I'll wait for a good sale on amazon01/14/2015 - 4:21pm
Andrew EisenI'm looking forward to giving the demo a spin. I love Monster Hunter but I don't want to play it on a handheld. Maybe the demo will change my mind.01/14/2015 - 3:46pm
IanCI m probably going to get the Monster Hunter 4 New 3DSXL. But I'm NOT trading my 3DS in since its a special edition from Nintendo UK (Toad patterned)01/14/2015 - 3:43pm
Andrew EisenYou don't have to charge it, just plug it in. But yes, the transfer can take a long time.01/14/2015 - 3:03pm
MaskedPixelanteI'm probably just going to sell it to a friend, I'll probably get more for it anyway.01/14/2015 - 2:59pm
MaskedPixelanteExcept they don't sell these things fully charged, and the 3DS takes a long time to system transfer and requires both devices to be on for the procedure.01/14/2015 - 2:56pm
Andrew EisenGameStop is accepting trade ins so I think being able to transfer your stuff in-store is incredibly likely. http://www.gamestop.com/collection/new-3ds-xl01/14/2015 - 2:33pm
Andrew EisenYou'd have to check with your local store but GameStop likely will allow you to transfer your account at the store so you can trade it in towards the purchase of a new one.01/14/2015 - 2:17pm
Andrew EisenYes, you do.01/14/2015 - 2:07pm
MaskedPixelanteBut you still need both pieces of hardware to do the license transfer.01/14/2015 - 2:04pm
Andrew EisenMP - Nintendo has an account system. It's just tied to specific hardware. Anyway, you can move your account to a new system.01/14/2015 - 1:56pm
MaskedPixelanteUhh... I think you misread my statement or didn't see the news, the Majora's Mask 3DS IS a 3DS.01/14/2015 - 1:42pm
PHX Corp@MP I'll probably wait on MM3DS until they get a new shipment in alongside the new 3DS(yes, I'll be upgrading the 3DS to the new Nintendo 3DS at some point)01/14/2015 - 1:29pm
MaskedPixelanteToo late, Majora's Mask 3DS is completely sold out, it seems. Probably good for Nintendo, it sounds like it sold out in seconds.01/14/2015 - 12:23pm
IanCI think Masked knows that. He wants to trade it in, which he can't do. If you don't trade it you can do the transfer.01/14/2015 - 11:58am
MonteMasked: If i recall it is possible to transfer your data from one 3DS to another. Get a new one, transfer then get rid of your old one. Also you could get Majora's mask digitally to avoid the issue of them being sold out if it really must have it on day 101/14/2015 - 11:28am
IvresseSame thing in my book, to be honest.01/14/2015 - 11:26am
