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.
