The Lost and Damned passes Oz censors unscathed

Tuesday, 17th February 2009 14:30 GMT By Patrick Garratt


GTA IV DLC The Lost and Damned has been passed without edits in Australia, IGN reports.

The contents features explicit sex scenes with prostitutes and full frontal male nudity.

The original GTA IV was originally refused classification in Australia by the ACB (formerly the OFLC) specifically because of the sex scenes with prostitutes.

The Lost and Damned has received a 15+ rating in Australia, the highest allowed.

    So the ‘game’ as it is is a passable 15+? And can Ozzies even play it seeing as the 360 version of GTA4 didnt pass classification?

    I’m not sure what gave you that impression Gekidami. The 360 and PS3 versions of the game are on sale in Australia just fine. I believe there may have been some cuts though.

    The Australians are completely bizarre in what they will and won’t allow. I get the idea sometimes that they just pick a ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ ticket out of a hat in order to decide what gets through and what doesn’t.
