    I'm sure Gabe will take the time to lay into Microsoft for making a sensible decision... Queue Valve-lovers in 3... 2... 1...

    It was clearly a miss communication error. Because they probably said no Adult games from the ESRB rating which is 18+ in North America. Where 18+ games here are pretty much porn games. Like even The Witcher 2 or extremely gory games are only Mature. So it got translated to no PEGI 18 games.

    Glad that was fix rapidly, and just in time by not affecting anyone or developers.
