Fallout 3 AU Fallout

Kotaku Australia has word that Fallout 3 has been officially refused classification In Australia, confirming indications that the content of the upcoming RPG sequel was not meeting the Aussie Office of Film and Literature Classification's standards (story). This makes it illegal to sell the game down under, though it is possible that an edited version of the game will be resubmitted for approval, but at this point Bethesda has refused to comment on this situation. It is not clear why the game was refused classification, as it contains scenes depicting drug use as well as a good deal of gore, either or both of which can run afoul of the OFLC.

Wow Australia is the new Germany! Even GTA 4 was released un-cut over here.
