The Australian Classification Board have just rated Batman Arkham VR which means that it’ll almost certainly be a launch title for PlayStation VR. More interestingly though, Batman Arkham VR’s classification introduces a new VR Descriptor which is labelled as ‘VR Interactivity’. Without doubt, this will have an impact on future ratings of games.
For instance, a game that may have been M/MA 15+ without VR, may now be classified with an R rating or refused classification all together just for a small VR component. This is due to the fact that the VR experience may deem the game to be more realistic.
