Submission + - Australia bans new Mortal Kombat->

daria42 writes: "Mortal Kombat is one of the oldest video game franchises around, but it looks as though Australia's classification board hasn't heard of it. Today the organisation confirmed it had banned the newest version of the game being sold in Australia, citing excessive violence such as "bloodspray" and "limb dismemberment". In a Mortal Kombat game? Who would have thought it! The ban comes because Australia does not have an R18+ classification for video games, despite extensive lobbying efforts by the video game industry and consumers"
