The Aussies bring down the ban hammer once more, this time outlawing sales of Blitz Games and Eidos' upcoming movie to game adaptation of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. While exact reasons as to why Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification decided to not rate, thus banning the game, is unclear, but local publisher Atari Australia decided to not fight the decision. Earlier this year, Atari was also prohibited from selling Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure. After it initially being allowed, the sales license was revoked merely days before its actual launch.
