AUSSIES ARE SPEWING ABOUT RATINGS

Recommended Posts

ok you know the deal,

 

Here in Australia my homeland, there has been an confirmed statement saying that our game will be censored or cut if you like.

 

Now GTA fans are spewing (thank God i havent pre-order yet.. i was kinda predicting something like this because of our stupid rating systems).

 

So for people who have and have not yet preorder there copy and simply will not stand to get a sh*tty water down copy of the game what should you do.

 

I mean come on people who wants to play the game when they know someone will have a better version of it because theres will have nude chicks or wateva. devil.gif

 

Is it best to buy one from the internet, weres the best place to buy and from what country.

 

Cheer, a very pissed of f GTA- BALLahhh suicidal.gif

Is it going to be that bad?

 

I've played the censored version of Vice City (Australian version), and the normal version, but apart from the hookers, and a bit of violence there was hardly any real difference. Actually there was none.

 

For starters we don't even know what's been cut.

 

People it's not like they've turned it into a PG game. I bet the changes will be very small. Use your brains. If it were significant wouldnt the whole game been held off for another few months, and released then?

It's not really what's been cut that's the problem. It's the whole principle of the matter, really. I mean, here we are paying almost double the price and yet we're going to be getting less than what we've paid for.

 

Well, looks like a lot of Aussie dollars will now be going overseas. So take that, local economy!

I couldn't agree more with what dvs-angel has said....I pre-ordered and paid off my special edition back in July of 2007 and so all this time I have been waiting and expecting the original version only to find out weeks before release that I am going to get a cut version!!!?? WTF is that b*llsh*t!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so pissed right now!!

 

I coudln't care less if all they took out was an item of clothing Niko wears I want the original version of the game and come April 29 I won't be as happy as first because I know the version I am going to play won't be the 'real' one!

 

Will NZ have the uncensored version and if so how would I go about getting one??

 

Cheers

They probably blame GTA for all the pyromen they've got burning down half the country

I am currently writing angry letters to the OFLC and my local member of parliment.

 

Lets make ourselves heard. I don't like having my rights taken away from me (right to free speach) and it has to stop.

 

Video Games are clearly a media on par with film and literature. They are even classified by the same governing body for christ's sake!

 

Therefore, no one can stop us from viewing this material provided we are above a certain age. Imagine if GTA IV was a book and it was banned, the sh*t they'dd throw up.

 

Seriously, blocking our right to view this media is unconstitutional. As long as GTA IV doesn't include child porn (I doubt lol) and it falls within other lawful boundries, they have no right to keep this from us.

 

 

If we all write letters to the OFLC we will be heard. Politicians are motivated through their ego's and the votes they will get.

its been confirmed that Australia gets an uncensored IV

 

http://www.gta4.tv/article/784525/australi...censored-gtaiv/

Nah thats old. This is why I have to look at hundreds of "austrailia is pissed" topics which annoys me,

 

they are getting a ma15+ version now. unlucky to them

Um.. thanks for that Mr Ignorance..

 

Australia's highest possible rating for any game is MA15+... we have no R18+ here... thats the problem...

 

It is my understanding that an unmodified build of the game was passed for classification back in November... Australia was the first country to have it rated..

 

Until Rockstar confirms the submission of an altered version including the changes made then Im not going to read too much into this speculation.. Vice City had the prostitutes taken out and SA was unedited so I can't see why IV would have an issue...

 

The only possible issue the OFLC might have is the drunk driving thing.. it always has a major focus in Australia.. perhaps you cant enter a vehicle while drunk??

 

OFLC - Note "Original"

and the funny thing is that it works out to be cheaper than buying here in store!

 

 

one thing: M Mature 17+ in the US is the complete uncencored version, right?

Would this affect multiplayer if I was playing someone in Oz or doesn't it make any difference?

 

Sorry if this is a stupid question, don't know much about how these things work, just play 'em.
