Rockstar has produced an edited version of Grand Theft Auto IV for Australia in order to obtain an MA15+ rating.
A Rockstar spokesperson confirmed that the company had produced a special version of GTA IV to comply with the Australian classification system, which does not currently contain an R18+ rating, but declined to reveal what material had been cut.
The Grand Theft Auto series has a chequered past with the OFLC in Australia.
In 2001, thousands of copies of GTA III were sold before the game was rated and refused classification because players could pick-up prostitutes. An edited version was later released.
2002's Gran Theft Auto: Vice City was also edited for Australian audiences.
In 2005, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has its original MA15+ rating overturned and the game pulled from retail shelves after it was revealed game discs contained a hidden "Hot Coffee" sex mini-game. An edited version rated MA15+ was soon back on sale.
Grand Theft Auto IV is released in Australia on April 29.
Thats the story, but I had heard that after Germany Had given the game a 18+ rating that everyone would be getting the same game, So lets hope for you guys down under that this is not totaly true. If so Im sure you can find some nice American Friends to hook you up.
