Australia censors South Park: The Stick of Truth

Even with the introduction of an R18+ adults only rating in Australia, video games are still being edited before making it Down Under. The latest? South Park: The Stick of Truth, which was labelled R18+ last week. Turns out, Aussies will be getting a censored version of the cartoon RPG when it arrives in March.

@gigorian. er. It was a joke from an episode of The Simpsons which I forgot to credit - doh! Bart is in Australia an where the locals have a parade where a big sign is carried that says "Celebrating 20 years of electricity!"

Everytime I see a Stick of Truth article I prey it's about a PS4/Xbox One day

There's nothing about this game that really would be taken away by being on the last gen consoles.
It is not a technical showpiece, and will look and play just fine on 360 and PS3.
Why, in this case, does there need to be a next-gen version?


I find that ridiculous, though I know it is true. Just because a new console comes out, that doesn't mean you give up on all the great experiences you had over the last 6+ years.
I mostly game on PC, and I return to games that are more than a decade and a half old. I still have fun with them and I would never want to get rid of them just because new games came out.

cuz some people got rid of their last gen systems to switch to current gen.

Some people want new games on the new system that they bought. How's that hard to understand?

" For the fact that there really is nothing much to be improved upon to justify the cost of porting a game, by a small developer, to an audience that is relatively small and will only, most likely, deliver small results in comparison to those who this game was originally intended for. "

That doesn't at all mean that foxtrot can't WISH for a next gen version. And that's all he did before you showed up to say that there's supposedly no benefit.

TedCruzsTaint1799d ago (Edited 1799d ago )


I didn't say there was no benefit, I said there was minimal benefit and it wouldn't be worth the developer's time to, at this point, think about next-gen.
I think, more than likely, they would be lucky to make any real profit by bringing the game to next-gen platforms at this point and it's probably not worth the time. It would be more of a risk than anything.


Quit while you are behind. You don't have one bubble because you speak your mind. You have one bubble because you purposely act like a dick. Learn to talk like the big boy that you are, or expect no one to take you seriously.

This game succeeds in looking like the cartoon more than how technical showpieces aim to look like real life.
Oh and some people don't have old gen aymore

Fishy Fingers1799d ago

After 3 episodes plugging the next gen systems only to reveal their game at the end. It will see a next gen release.

I've had a PS4 since the fifteenth of November, and i totally get where you are coming from mate. I myself just re-purchased FF XIII and XIII-2 the other day to play.

I want Lightning Returns, Lords of Shadow 2, ECT next year and I'm going to play them.

That being said, I WOULD rather play them on my PS4. For me it's just a little inconvenient to play on my ps3 over my PS4. That's it though, just a little inconvenient.

I like the social features in the PS4, also. So of course I would prefer playing all of these upcoming games on one console.

This is what we call a first world problem. Which awesome machine can I play my plethora of games on? Life is so hard!! T-T

lol ;)

Just gonna get the PC version if no PS4 version, i'm trying to not buy PS3 games anymore.

We fought for an R18+ rating for a number of years. We finally got it and still, games are being refused or edited to fit into the guidelines.

What exactly was the point of the introduction of an R18+ rating if the old folks who are looking at these games aren't going to use it properly?

Straya ****. Well, I can always send you a copy from the UK if you want. Just PM me and I'm sure I can sort it out.

Bathyj1799d ago

Ha, I may hold you to that Septic. ;)
