Saints Row IV Aussie ban due to Alien Anal Probe

Player Attack: Yesterday, we confirmed that Saints Row 4 has been Refused Classification in Australia - today, we can tell you why. Those of you who were expecting it to be something typically over-the-top are right on the money - the Board objects (among other things) to the game's inclusion of an "Alien Anal Probe". (PS3, Saints Row 4, Xbox 360)

its funny as that(Alien Anal Probe) would have been the 1st thing I showed my parents the next time they came over for dinner. I also showed them the purple dildo when SR3 was released and they thought that was funny to.

Is there a harder place to be a gamer than Australia..coupled with the crazy prices.
ScubbaSteve  +   397d ago
Can't help but wonder if they just import all their stuff. I mean with the prices why would you bother buying games locally.

Well yeah its cheaper to import but when stupid nintendo does region locking club nintendo shit.... and well you "can" run into problems with importing and dlc. You are right tho importing is the way to go...

@killbill wouldn't it be more convenient to also import the console as well if its region locked?
killbillvolume12  +   396d ago
@elhebbo16 Yeah it would bew convenient but then you would run into issues of if your console dies you CANNOT get it repaired by the big companies....

From what I've seen in the trailers, they aren't really missing out on anything great.

If you only judge by the trailers... Rome Total War is the worse game of the series according to you.

I also watched the gameplay footage and I wasn't impressed.
Pisque  +   397d ago
This is kind of weird but it turns me on

I see aliens probing people on the street all the time in Aus whats the big deal?!
killbillvolume12  +   397d ago
Like i said in the other forum its pretty pointless to ban games when you have the internet....

Man, I hate my country ....

At least the next gen consoles will region free.
I suppose you have that much to look forward to.
Wow that sucks :( poor Aussie gamers. For such a stupid reason too. Be patient, maybe this'll blow over like the "Injustice: The Mighty Among Us" fiasco.

"The Board goes on to explain that the weapon can be used on innocent civilian bystanders as well as enemy characters - and that neither attack is sufficiently justified by context.

Does the board also know that it's a video game and none of the characters are real human beings! Board of fools!

I really want to sit in on a meeting with the board discussing what can or can't be deemed appropriate for these guys, it should be rather humorous.
