You may recall that, back in Australia Bans Fallout 3, the “classification” (I call it censorship) board refused to rate Fallout 3. They considered the drug use and paraphernalia to be unacceptable.

Bethesda resubmitted the game with changes, and FO3 has now been given the MA15 rating. The exact changes aren’t known yet, although the board says that the “rewards” for using drugs have been “toned down”. Rather vague, that.

Regardless, the game will be available down under when it’s released. But I wonder how many Aussie gamers will be looking at the torrents to find the “uncensored” version. These ridiculous boards (and Australia has one of the worst) really do NOT help the gaming industry.
