After being refused classification by the OFLC
-- Australia's ratings board -- Silent Hill: Homecoming
is finally coming home Down Under with an MA15+ rating. The game had earlier failed to net an MA15+ rating in September of 2008, effectively banning it from sale. It wasn't alone, as several other titles, including F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
and Fallout 3
, ran into the same situation (both of which were later classified). According to Gamespot
, Silent Hill: Homecoming
was apparently resubmitted to the OFLC and has now been classified MA15+, though it's unclear what changes were made to the game, if any.
Hopefully, the pervading creepiness is still intact, because that's all that matters.
