Australia legalizes violent video games

For years, Australia's censors effectively banned games with graphic violence, making titles such as Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat hard to charge money for. At Ars Technica, David Cornish writes that all this has changed with a recent bill to allow for "mature" titles to be classified for release: first up is a Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, an inane franchise slasher that could use the publicity.
