Even though everybody was happy for the recent developments concerning Quake 4, the German Quake-Scene was very askant. Every single Quake game got banned in Germany. Today the USK (the institute, that gives the age restrictions in Germany) rated the Quake 4 with 16. This means the game will not be banned in Germany. This will give german Clans a huge oppurtunity to promote their Quake teams properly. It's now even possible to broadcast Quake 4 Games in Television or other media.

UPDATE: Counter-Strike Source has been re-rated by the USK today. The formerly rated USK 18 title will be re-released by EA with an USK 16 rating. Check it out here.
