[ Game -> Update ] - 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.”

Phinomorph and Ocainay, okay? Big deal.

As long as they still have child-killing in the game, it's all cool.

ALL COOL.

Wow.

edit: probably did it, as otherwise a large amount of people would've imported/pirated it instead of buying it locally. Although, with our software prices it's still the smartest option.

video games are too immursive and reel - we need to make it all fantasy and stuff so the kiddies don't go postal and kill teachers and students and puppies

THey are such fucking pussies. I swear, they better fucking not censor deadspace too, because i am actually looking forward to that. I am actually flabbergasted at quite how bethesda could even sell out on their own sell-out game.

Deadspace. yeah.

Since when was Australia even an important market to worry about?
