It started yesterday with the rating of the USK in Germany.
GTA IV has been rated as 18+. After that, alot of gameshops and magazines from germany, austria and switzerland contacted Take2 to ask if the game will be uncut in germany.
The reason is, since GTA 3, every GTA has been released as a cut version in germany.
The last two, Vice City and San Andreas got the 16+ rating. So the currently 18+ rating for GTA IV let alot of people guess it could be uncut now.
Anyway, Take2 confirmed it will be uncut in germany. But not only that, they also said, the game will be released as the same version worldwide.
