According to this New Zealand Herald story, GTA IV will be censored in New Zealand as well as Australia.

We’re a little confused as to why, as the game has received an 18 rating in New Zealand, as opposed to the 15 it got from the OFLC in Australia. For the record, 15 is the maximum a game can be rated in Australia, hence the fact the game has to be cut for release there.

“Everyone’s assuming it is logistics,” a retailer told the newspaper. “It just makes sense for them to send us the Australian version.”
