Mass Effect ban in Singapore lifted with M18 rating. November 20, 2007Posted by stvchang in games, gaming news, Microsoft, Xbox360, Xbox360 games.
Mass Effect fans in Singapore can rejoice. The game, which was banned in Singapore last week, have been approved with an M18 rating by the Singapore Media Developmental Authority. It will be available in SG stores next week.
According to The Strait Times (a local SG newspaper), the Board of Film Censors “will selectively use games ratings to ‘enable highly anticipated games to be launched in Singapore’ until it puts in place a games classification system in January.” Singapore’s MDA banned the BioWare game due to the “alien lesbian love scene” found within the game, making Singapore the only country in the world to ban it.
Now Singaporean gamers can breath a sigh of relief while seeing the anticipated scene with bated breath.
