You Can Go To Jail For Selling An R18+ Game To Kids

Mark over at Kotaku has taken a look at the new laws surrounding the incoming R18+ legislation, and it contains some pretty serious stuff. Turns out that you can be jailed in Victoria for selling an R18+ game to a minor. There are even huge penalties for displaying a game where a minor might see it.

Selling a video game to a minor can cop you six months in jail along with some heavy monetary penalties, and in NSW the case is mostly the same, with hefty fines for offenders, but it looks like you’ll dodge the slammer.
