So, us Kiwi's are punished for Australia's archaic rating system, even though we have our own separate censorship system that has a 'R' rating for video games - basically it is based on the UK system, not AU. Man, I was so hyped for this game - watched the final episodes of season 2 last night on free-to-air tv (no problems screening it on tv) and was seriously looking forward to playing Telltales' new Walking Dead game.
But no, that wasn't to be. If this was going to be the case, why even put The Walking Dead thumbnail up on our store and get our hopes up. I'm probably taking this out on the wrong people, but feel the need to vent. Usually I'm really happy to live in NZ solely because games that are banned in Australia don't get banned here, because of the simple fact that our censors understand the need for a 'R' rated system for games.
I'm sorry for the rant, but I needed to get that off my chest, and believe that if The Walking Dead game was sent in for certification in NZ it would be passed without question.
My question would be is that would you be releasing The Walking Dead as a Hardcopy on disc at some point, rather than just a downloadable title, because at least, I oould import the title that way.
Cheers Telltale Games.

I thought we have been approved R rated games in Aus.

Sorry, but due to the OFLC ratings laws in Australia and New Zealand, and the fact that this is a mature game, we do not currently have plans to release the game there on consoles.

I've just registered specifically to protest this decision. Can you please provide detailed reasons as to why this game will not be available in New Zealand? The OFLC body here is a completely separate entity from that of Australia (as is the country itself in case you're not aware), and unlike the latter, we have a rating system that provides for R18+ games. Why then are we not seeing a release here?

Hey Mr propellerhead is the new zealand store the same as the australian PSN store? I'm pretty sure we all get the UK/EU content at the same time here.. if Aus/NZ store is considered as 1 store, maybe thats why you don't get a release.

This is ridiculous. I bought a $30 PSN card this morning thinking I'd be able to buy the game when I get home from work - and then this happens. Now I have no idea what to do with the card.
