Looks Like Fallout 3 is Coming to Australia After All

Fallout fans Down Under are celebrating as the word on the web is that Fallout 3 will be coming to Australia. Despite the initial ban hammer over in-game drug use, according to The Gamer Chip, EB Games and GAME representatives have assured fans that they will be getting the game in a slightly modified format.

After the announcement that Fallout 3 had been banned gamers and the media were whipped into a frenzy pointing out that games with similar mechanics such as BioShock had been approved. One Australian gamer went quipped in a post online, “What are the syringes in Bioshock filled with – magic fairy dust?” The controversy culminated in a rather embarrassing broadcast where a panel of politicians displayed their ignorance of Fallout 3 and video games in general live on ABC’s Q&A.

Gaming Today is waiting for the official confirmation from Bethesda itself. Stay tuned for the final verdict on Fallout 3.

This is great news I’m not a big RPG fan but this one looks really good.
It looks like OFLC aren’t as stupid as they look.
When they said they’re going to ban it beacuse of the drug use i was a liitle bemused becuse it wouldn’t be the first game to show the use of drugs in its content, it’s like when Dark Sector got banned becuase of releastic decapitations, and I thought, yeah It’s really releastic to get you head cut off by a man with metal sword growing out of his arm, Please give me a break.
