WiiWare strip poker game banned in Australia
http://img.qj.net/uploads/articles_m...ker.png?685213Recently, when we hear "banned in Australia" the first thing that comes to mind is violence. The second game to be refused qualification in the region this year, however (Necrovision was the first), wasn't banned because of blood and guts but because of some good old-fashioned nudity.
The game is Gameloft's WiiWare title Sexy Poker. As you can probably gather from the title alone, this is a strip poker game. Players get to play poker against six different female opponents wearing stereotypically fetishistic costumes like a police uniform and a nurse's outfit.
Whoa, wait up. A strip poker game for the Wii?!? The mind, it boggles.
Anyway, what sparked the OFLC's ire was that the game offers "offers depictions of nudity as an incentive or reward to interactive game play ... as the player is shown increasingly detailed amounts of nudity following successful game-play". Yeah, well, what did they expect? That's what strip poker's all about, isn't it?
