Western Australia has delayed its acceptance of the introduction of an R18+ classification for video games.
The ACT and NSW have already passed the legislation to introduce the new classification guidelines on January 1, 2013.
However, it didn't move through parliament as swiftly in Western Australia this week. Instead of passing the laws, the state government sent an amendment to a committee consisting of two Liberal MPs, a Greens MP and a Labor MP for further investigation.
The public can make submissions ahead of the report on November 6.
That leaves Western Australia with a tight decline before the end of December to get any amendments approved and the legislation passed.
