Rockstar made a booboo and showed the Australians what they have been missing

happykangarooIf you remember back when GTA IV was originally released there was a bit of a media storm around whether or not Australia would be getting it or not due to their archaic censorship ratings.

Well to solve the problem Rockstar gave the Ozzies a dumbed down version of GTA instead which didn’t have any nudity or blood in it because we know how those Ozzies can’t handle the hard stuff in life.

So when the DLC was created it was created in two formats, one for the normal countries of the world and one for the ones with over the top censorship however things didn’t go as planned and Rockstar have accidently released the real version to the Australian market and the gimped version into the UK and Western Europe.

As you can imagine the Europeans are not so happy and the Australians are over the moon, it’s going to take year for them to get over the excitment…

At the time of writing Rockstar had apparently fixed the problem but isn’t it odd that they always seem to get in the news for these sorts of things, I think someone high up in Rockstar has a naughty sense of humour.
