Fallout 3 Censored for AU, and Everywhere Else Too

Censors Force Fallout 3 Changes on Edge Online has a surprising revelation about the news that Fallout 3 was rejected by Australian censors (story) later to be approved for sale down under after the editing of some of the game's drug references (story). It turns out the edited version resubmitted down under will be the version that's released globally, so everyone will be subject to the Australian standards for adult games, which is that there are no such things. They quote Bethesda Softworks' Pete Hines on the topic: "An issue was raised concerning references to real world, proscribed drugs in the game, and we subsequently removed those references and replaced them with fictional names. To avoid confusion among people in different territories, we decided to make those substitutions in all versions of the game, in all territories. I didn't want people continuing to assume the version in Australia was some altered version when it's not. There are no references to real world drugs in any version of Fallout 3."
