    1: You're encouraging software piracy by doing this.
    2: Customs shouldn't be wasting their time on fantasy violence like this.
    3: You can't stop information or knowledge from being spread in the internet age, australians can just watch videos of the game on youtube.

    This is retarded on all too many levels Australia, get your shit together.

    Like they are going to bother opening parcels...

    They only open parcels that sniffer dogs pull out... and it has to be a freaky good sniffer dog to smell the difference between one game and another...

    Sorry to say, but this is just so fucking retarded.

    Feel bad for the Aussies; this looks like a great game.

    Damn, Australia. Is there no reinforcement of your ratings there or something?

    Thats absolutely ridiculous. Even though I don't care for the MK games, I believe someone should have to right to buy the game if they want to. All they are doing is encouraging software piracy...

    Can't possibly moderate user-uploaded videos at a consistent pace, or stop people viewing from other websites like gametrailers, dailymotion or vimeo.

    Australia rating systems are so terribly broken. Apparently full grown adults don't have the right or are apparently mature enough to handle a little violence, and can't decide for themselves if their kids are allowed to play with violent games either. Wow Australia, wow.

    For once i'm going to support piracy......no seriously go for it guys......the consequences for getting caught pirating it are less then those of legally buying it [​IMG]

    As for Australia...they need to get their shit together and stop being so afraid of violence in video games

    (nothing against Australasians, you guys are awesome, its whoever controls the video game ratings that needs to get their heads out of their asses and see that violent video games are pretty harmless)

    I don't understand why people can't walk over the government and spit them out when they do this kind of stuff. You would think millions of people could hurt the government for making actions like this and the government would be scared to do anything like this again.

    Oh yeah, that's right... the government brainwashes people to make them believe its the "right" thing to do.

    i thought the reason that the game can't be sold is because it's un-classified and so no shop wants to carry it. i have no fucking idea why it would be illegal to import.

    it's a game apparently too gory for people under 18, it isn't fucking kiddie porn or snuff or some shit :/

    This totally reminds me of the retarded failure of parenting by Fox News.
    Are they trying to encourage this?

    I may not be into gaming anymore but sadly, stuff like this is holding me back from going to Australia.

    I also find it ironic how Australia is classified as one of the countries with the most freedom yet they've blocked a shit ton of websites and have banned tons of video games.
