SEGA has decided to not release Aliens vs Predator in Germany once the game is ready for stores.
This decision is due to the violence included in the game, and the ratings board in Germany more than likely banning it or asking that it be heavily edited.
Apparently, SEGA has decided that it’s just not worth the trouble, and doesn’t want to water down the gameplay to suit one country’s standards.
However, it is still planned for release in Australia, and even if it is deemed to violent there, SEGA will not have lost money because a translated version won’t be necessary in the English-speaking country.
We’ll ask SEGA Europe for more on this, just to be sure.
