[QUOTE]The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper has reported this morning that the Australian Classification Board will push for online games to be classified in an attempt to bring consistency to the Enforcement Act, which has maintained a blind eye to the sales of such titles so far.

Games that don't contain a single player experience, such as World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online and Age of Conan, were not put forward for classification on release due to the belief that, being primarily online games, they fell outside the traditional national classification rulings.

But it seems now the Australian Classification Board is pushing for complete consistency, wanting all games to be classified - be they online or not. The NSW Classification Enforcement Act, enforced in 1995, prohibits publishers and retailers from selling unclassified computer games.

John Hatzistergos, spokesperson for NSW Attorney-General said, "the NSW legislation covers computer games bought online as well as those bought in stores, and treats single, multi-player and online games the same way."

Going further, a spokesman for NSW Police Minister Tony Kelly, urged members of the community to contact local police if they saw retailers selling computer games illegally. [/QUOTE] [B][SIZE=4]* HEAD/DESK*[/SIZE][/B] So nobody noticed this inconsistency for 14 years?


We're the first ones to starve, we're the first ones to die
The first ones in line for that pie-in-the-sky
And we're always the last when the cream is shared out
For the worker is working when the fat cat's about
