Fallout 3 Censorship Report - Find out what got cut from the Aussie version

IGN writes: "And so, the epic saga comes to a close - Fallout 3's OFLC report has been made available to IGN AU; the contents outline the reasons behind the reassessment of Bethesda's post-nuclear RPG in Australia by the classification board.

The biggest points to take away with you are that the essential nature of drug use in the game has not been altered dramatically:

'The drugs depicted are fictional; drugs are depicted as stylised icons on a menu with the drug use itself not depicted. Whilst navigating a post-apocalyptic futuristic landscape, players can invoke the use of a variety of "chems" listed by fictitious names which include "Buff", "Rad-X", "Psycho" and "Ultrajet". Within the context of the game's narrative, the player may choose to make use of these "chems" to alter the physiological characteristics of their character in the game.'"

This censorship affects the ps3 version as well right?

I might have to import this if its good. But then again, those changes seem fairly minor.
