The Australian version of the game had to be censored to be released. (One of the things that was censored was the ability to move the camera whilst at it with a lady of the night)

Sounds like they've mixed up their versions with the update...

Yeah, you know - an error, like making it a crap conversion that needs a supercomputer to get half decent graphics with a decent draw distance and frame rate. Or releasing it with online activation that takes bloody ages and tens of megabytes of downloaded crap to sort out.

Or talking over a standard set of protocols but not letting the different platforms it's on play against one another.

I really wish I'd not bought the POS now.

Australian censorship

I believe the Australian version of the game comes with this censorship so it can pass through their board of censorship there.

Maybe theres been some crossed wires and some of the content meant for the aussie version has gotten in to the european one.

I was starting to get worried that I may have to get my high-octane thrills by going out onto the street with a rocket launcher I found the other day...!

So...

...if a modification which added gore and sex forced Rockstar to reclassify from M to AO, will a modification which removes gore and sex force them to reclassify from M to T? Or are people hypocrites?

Hmm...

Aussie versions

The PlayStation and Xbox releases in Australia were censored to avoid hassles with the classification board. Rockstar never presented an uncensored version to be classified.

If someone did request it be classified, it would now have to be passed since the PC version (with the same content) passed as MA15+.

Because we can't have any sex

In a game about violent thugs murdering scores of innocents, sex would be totally unacceptable, right?

Western society is retarded.
