Update: Aliens vs. Predator banned in Australia but not New Zealand

Australia’s Classification Review Board is to meet this Friday to reconsider its earlier decision to ban the game. Sega asked for the reconsideration as developers Rebellion refused to water down the gore and violence contained within the game. Although many believe the ban will still stand as there are no plans to raise the classification ratings from MA15+ to R18.

The game and its many collector’s editions are still set to ship in New Zealand however.
