Australia bans Manhunt

Australia has banned Manhunt, the grisly game claimed to have influenced the murder of a UK teenager earlier this year.

The Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC), a cross-state body, this week said it had revoked the game’s MA15+ certificate. That classification indicates which age groups any given title can be sold to, in this case only people over the age of 15. This week’s move in effect renders the sale of Manhunt in Australia illegal – the game is not suitable for anyone to play, the OFLC effectively said.

Indeed, “any existing stocks of this game held by retailers must be removed from the shelves immediately”, the body warned.
