Game Classification Information
What is the Office of Film and Literature Classification Board?
The Australian Classification Board rating system is an unbiased, standardized way to help you determine whether an Xbox® or Xbox 360™ video game is appropriate for your child. The Australian Classification Board administers the national classification scheme for all films, computer games and publications that are exhibited, sold or hired in Australia. Classification Board members are selected to broadly represent the people of Australia and are part of the Attorney-General’s Department. In making classification decisions, the Boards are bound by the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Act 1995 and classification guidelines.
The Australian Classification Board has a Web site at http://www.classification.gov.au so that parents and kids can access up-to-date rating information.

You can limit the type of content played on the Xbox video game system based on the OFLC classification level. By default, the Xbox and Xbox 360 video game systems are set to play all content. You can select separate parental control levels for games and DVD movies.
Xbox and Xbox 360 will play games and DVD movies that are rated at or below the selected level. For example, if the selected level is Parental Guidance (PG), only games rated PG and G will play in the system. If you choose any level other than ALL, you must select a pass code.
