Gamespot.com is reporting that Fallout 3 maybe banned in OZ for it has in game drug use. This comes hot on the heels of GTAIV cut release which effected by Australia and NZ's release of Rockstar title.
'If a user on GameSpot PC Forums is to be believed, then Australia's ratings regime may be about to claim its highest-profile victim for 2008 so far. According to the original post, upcoming post-apocalyptic action-RPG Fallout 3 has been refused classification in Australia due to in-game drug use...'
The article goes on to say - 'Red Ant Enterprises--the game's distributors in Australia--responded with a flat "no comment" when contacted by GameSpot AU. Coincidentally, Red Ant was also the distributors for Blitz: The League, which was also banned in Australia in early 2007. Blitz was refused classification due to its in-game drug use...'
Only time will tell to see if the overbearing Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) of Australia banned the title.
Let's just hope that our own censors don't follow their lead.
