The FIFA Interactive World Cup Qualifiers took place this week, the ACT begins work implementing the R18+ rating and more.
- After the R18+ classification sailed through the House of Representatives, it was left with only the Senate to go before it can begin to be passed into law by each individual state and territory in Australia. Australia's Capital Territory (ACT) has taken the first steps in preparing itself to implement the new law, which is expected to hit by 1st January, 2013.
- MCV Pacific has become an official media supporter of Game Tech 2012, which has given a full list of companies which will provide speakers for the business conference, which include NOKIA, The Commonwealth Bank, Rip Curl and some other left-of-field entrants.
- The FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) had its qualifying rounds at EB Games stores across the country, so MCV spoke to last year's national champion about what can be expected for the winner of next week's finals.
- Another Game Jam is happening, centred around the parody Twitter account Molydeux, wherein developers in Melbourne and Sydney will be creating games in only 48 hours based on the outlandish ideas found in Molydeux's tweets.
- GAME Australia is still yet to close any stores as it remains focused on finding finance to keep itself afloat.
