Default Left 4 Dead 2 R18+ in AUS ??

Well, someone asked the question in the Steam forums..
Quote:
Just wondering if anyone knows if there's been any word on whether valve will release the 'full gore' version of L4D2 for those of us here in downunderland, now that the R18 classification has finally passed?
..and an official response came..

No need to flood us with emails. We have been exploring the options here and what we can legally do. We will have more information on this when we understand the issues fully and how we are moving forward but don't worry any cost associated with it doesn't worry us, this is something we want to do.

I didn't get this game due to censorship. I'll definitely buy it if released in full.

Didn't 90% of Aussies just get the uncensored version gifted to them anyway?

Yep that's what I did.

I honestly can't see them bothering to go through the ridiculous bureaucratic crap the Aus government puts out just for a what 2-3? year old game, there's just no profit in it.

I thought this too, but if they're getting a lot of emails/requests it might be worth the hassle as a publicity stunt alone, regardless of how much money they'd make from the extra Aussie sales of the game. It would make headlines on Aussie and international gaming news websites, paint steam in a good light and give Valve a nice Martyrs-4-Gamers achievement unlocked which is probably worth more than the money it'd cost them to do it.
