More info on Game: Fallout 3 | More info on Person: Pete Hines

According to Pete Hines, Fallout 3 is set to be censored across the world following the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification's refusal to grant it a rating. In order to accommodate the changes necessary to be released in Australia, Bethesda has decided to make the same changes worldwide. From Edge Online:

Calling the idea of an Australia-specific version of the game a “misconception,” Hines told us, “We want to make sure folks understand that the Australian version of Fallout 3 is identical to both the UK and North American versions in every way, on every platform.”

He continued, “An issue was raised concerning references to real world, proscribed drugs in the game, and we subsequently removed those references and replaced them with fictional names. To avoid confusion among people in different territories, we decided to make those substitutions in all versions of the game, in all territories.”

Hines stated, “I didn't want people continuing to assume the version in Australia was some altered version when it's not.” Finally, he explained that, “There are no references to real world drugs in any version of Fallout 3.”
