Australia To Recieve Uncut Version of GTA IV PC
As Australia's GTA IV PC release date gets closer, gamers are excited to learn that the chart-topping title will be uncensored. While the console versions needed to cut out those nifty prostitution perks (and some unknown others) in order to meet those strict guidelines down under, the PC version will be absolutely limitless in the case of content.
Australia's Classification Board and their strict rating system isn't unknown to the gaming industry. Another title, F.E.A.R. 2, was refused classification for failing to meet the ACB's MA15+ guidelines. Once a game has been given this rating, it cannot be sold in Australia. In total, five games have been banned due to the RC rating in 2008.
A local Rockstar rep had this to say,
So, congratulations Aussie PC gamers! You'll have your taste of the real Grand Theft Auto IV Rockstar intended you to have.

Ahhh yes, I remember when they said the console version would be uncut as well. I'll believe it when I see it. As I never figured out what was actually cut, I don't really care either way. Also, my friend got it for PC today and said it's buggy as shit.
