Good to see that Australia will get the full version without cuts.

According to the Australian rating board the game's country of origin is the USA bored.gif
They haven't realised that the game is developed in the UK.

It developed in U.S also at Rockstar NYC office for voice actors, radio stations etc.

Yes, it will. As it should.

@ZeeKid2k10

It is developed at R* North which is in Edinburgh, Scotland. The missions, the world etc is all done there from the ground up and GTA originated there so it's still a British game. The recording and voice acting is done in NYC because it's likely most convenient since they need American VA's and accents and it's easier for someone to go to NYC to do recording rather than Scotland.

It is a British game....simple as that. But why does it matter? R* is amazing and it doesn't matter in the end where they are from as people worldwide play their games and enjoy them.

I'm assuming it says US because R* NYC handles this kind of stuff. R* is really multinational.

Obviously. As a Brit, have you seen the pre-order numbers in USA from vgChartz? I bet it's not even upto-date. While the UK are preparing for 3 mill copies on the launch day.

Nobody cares where the game was developed. R* is headquartered in NYC, so the game is from USA. Headquarter counts, nothing else.


hahaha the butthurt is strong here.

GTA is British. Anyone who claims otherwise is a jealous little twat.

Of course GTA is British and anyone have one half of a brain knows that and accepts it.

But some 'Murikans can't stand that something so amazing could come from another country other than theirs.

R* NYC is the HQ and the only thing it's responsible for is the marketing, I do believe. R* North is where GTA began and has been devved ever since even after R* bought the company DMA Design. DMA Design was a Scottish game dev company that turned into R* North. They are Scottish = British = Not American.

You wouldn't claim Max Payne 3 was a Canadian game just because R* Vancouver was in Canada? I doubt that you would even tho it makes more sense considering the studio that made it was indeed in Canada. Just like R* North is in Scotland and R* are originally British, including Dan and Sam Houser.

It's part Scottish and part English. The Rockstar North office is in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. They originated as DMA Design who made Lemmings and their office used to be in Dundee. So overall they're more Scottish than English, but you can settle on British if you want.

Rockstar Games handles recordings for voice overs and music too. I was told once that Rockstar North work in some odd hours sometimes so they're in sync with the offices in NYC.

There's a statue of Lemmings in Dundee now:

Also in the UK, GTA V has been off the charts in terms of pre-orders. GAME stores left and right are running out of pre-orders to give out and people can only resort to purchasing the standard edition. It's also being advertised in most shops now such as Tesco and Sainsbury's. I don't know if this is any different in the states.

The trolls you mean? I dunno, under a bridge probably.

I am glad GTA V made it through uncensored, I didn't ever really believe it was going to be banned because R* would just edit the game, but I didn't want the game edited, it sucks knowing you're missing out on something.

I remember GTA III somehow I had an original copy, twice and I could blow off people's limbs. Now the copy I have is a censored version that doesn't allow dismemberment, it sucks.

Don't know if you're American, but if you are, I'll have you know that Australia is MUCH more civilised than the US.

So is this a sign that GTA V is less violent than previous GTA's, or just that the Aussie Ratings Board has eased up a bit?

I think it just means it's not torture porn standards.

So you probably won't see intestines pouring out of an individuals stomach after you've ploughed into their midsection with your motorbike.
