Australia Bans Reservoir Dogs Before Launch

The Australian Personal Computer Magazine (APC) is reporting that the country’s government has banned the upcoming release of Eidos’ Reservoir Dogs for the PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. “Atari, the Australian distributor of EIDOS’ major upcoming release, has had the title scrapped after being refused classification by the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC).

“The ban comes after Atari’s application failed to comply with the strict categorisation guidelines into one of the four available standards (G, PG, M, MA15+) currently available. Since Australia still has no restricted R18+ category for video games, Reservoir Dogs has therefore become unclassifiable and the title made illegal for sale or rental in Australia with strict fines and jail time available for merchants running the risk.”
