E3 2010: Games to be banned in Australia?

This year's E3 showcased some pretty violent video games -- but will any of them see light of day in Australia?

Mortal Kombat

Developer: NetherRealm Studios Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

The MK franchise has always been known for its gore factor, but the latest entry takes things to a whole new gruesome level with the introduction of ‘X-Ray Mode’.

This awesome feature, when executed, let’s the player see organs squelch and bones shatter when making contact with an opponent. It definitely gives a great sense of satisfaction knowing your enemy is crumbling from the inside. The character models also show realistic damage, with each combatant sustaining torn skin, exposed ribs and missing eyeballs as the fight goes on.

But will this cross the line with the Classification Board? If the fatality showreel we were shown is anything to go by, Mortal Kombat might have a very big fight on its hands...

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
