Fallout 3 Refused Classification In Australia

Illustration for article titled Fallout 3 Refused Classification In Australia

And by "refused classification", we really mean banned, since without classification it's illegal for retailers to sell the game in Australia. In an unsurprising move, the Australian Office of Film & Literature Classification have, hands bound once again by Australia's refusal to allow games to be rated R18+, deemed elements of Bethesda's upcoming RPG a little bit much. There's no word yet on just what the board found unsuitable, but seeing as the game involves drug use (Blitz) and extreme gore (Soldier of Fortune) - two things games have previously been refused classification for - you could probably take your pick.

@xMindPrintsx: It's nobody's FAULT. The OFLC would rate the game R if they COULD, and the government would change it if there weren't 1001 more important things for the government to be doing.

Sucks, but hey, there's ayways Play-Asia. That or GAMETRADERS ROBINA.
