South Park - Censored in Australia

I know we have a few watchers from Australia so this might intrest a few of you. It seems South Park: The Stick of Truth is the next game to be censored for release.

Player Attack has two articles about the subject. You can find the first one here, and the second one here. You can always use a proxy if you want the untouched version.

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.

At this stage, it's unclear exactly what has been changed in the game, but a spokesperson from Ubisoft has told us that a "slightly modified version of South Park The Stick of Truth has been approved for release in Australia on March 6".

The Australian Classification Board actually rated South Park: The Stick of Truth twice. The official rating was the second time the game had been through the process. Three weeks earlier, the Board rated another Ubisoft title, Codename, which had the same "High impact crude humour, sex scenes and references to sexual violence" as South Park.
