Fallout 3 Confirmed For Australian Release

August 1st 2008 04:28
fallout 3

Fallout is an apt name for upcoming game. The Australian media has been whipped into the closest thing to a frenzy we have here for the gaming industry over the ban on the upcoming Bethesda title Fallout 3. But according to EB Games and GAME representatives, Australia will be receiving the game, albeit in a modified format. The new, friendlier version, will have the drug use removed that saw the game banned in the first place. Both EB Games and GAME are currently taking pre-orders for the title. One representative from GAME, contacted this Thursday night, (after hammering home the "do you want to pre-order?" spiel) said that he had read on their internal communications only an hour before that Fallout 3 would be released this year.

It looks as though both stores are holding fast. Let's hope that this is a reality rather than their misplaced optimism.

I think it sucks that oblivion maker would sellout to a government and change a concept of the game.

Many games have drug use, and certainly in fallout it was especially pertinent to the plot and gameplay.

hopefully this is not a standard to expected of future video games.

Preferably the government should do something about the real problem of drug use, rather than denying a very REAL aspect of our society, and trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes.
Games, do not incite drug use, and proper education prevents it. There's an idea.. try spending some money on education.. rather than watching and controlling people.
