Australia Targets Online Comments, Then Retracts

I'm Pretty Sure They Did Ban Grand Theft Auto in Australia, they banned Manhunt 1 & 2 I believe. Many countries such as Germany also get their games actually edited before they arrive. The 'controversial MW2 level' everyone had the option to skip in the rest of the world was Completely DELETED on the German version of the disc.

Wow, I would only have thought something like this was possible in America, welcome to the U.S.A Australia, we're all going to hell.

I feel your pain you guys. But you still live in a beautiful country. And there is still great things about it. Try not to focus on the downside of it, at least you still get to come on these websites and express your opinion. Some countries like China cannot even access the majority of the internet.
