Not sure why is this such a big deal. Only way it'll be more important would be if the game had been denied a rating in AUS, but it hasn't.

Importing a game, especially in Australia, can save you anywhere between $5 to $20. That saving includes the cost of postage.

Besides, this has nothing to do with Australia and the games rating (which passed as R18+, in its unedited glory).

Many people import their games. Many people want GTA V. Many people will want to import GTA V.

Wow, it's actually cheaper for you guys to import games than to go down to your local store and purchase it.

If they're aren't screwing you over with their backwards rating systems, they'll get you on price. Australia really doesn't want gaming in it's country does it...

Question: What languages does Grand Theft Auto V support? Are these languages included in all versions or does language support vary depending on the region of the game? Is the game region-locked or region-free?

Answer: Grand Theft Auto V's language support and region-lock status depend on the platform and the region.


PlayStation®3 (Region-Free*):

  • North America, Asia (Except Japan) – English, French, Brazilian Portuguese**, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Latin American Spanish
  • Europe, Middle East, Russia – English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese**, Polish
  • Japan – Japanese and English


Xbox 360:

  • Worldwide (Region-Free*) except for Japan – English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese**, Polish, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Latin American Spanish
  • Japan (Region-Locked to Japanese Xbox 360 Consoles) – Japanese and English


*It is generally recommended that you buy and play games that are designated for your country to avoid potential problems with DLC region-compatibility, such as with pre-order bonuses. For example, a North American PS3 GTAV disc (BLUS31156 code on spine of box), Japanese PS3 GTAV disc (BLJM61019 code on the spine of the box) or Asian PS3 disc (BLAS 50639 code on spine of box for Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan. BLKS20442 for Korea) will play on a European PlayStation®3 console. However, if you live in Europe (where the GTAV disc code is BLES01807) you will likely have a European PSN account that will not be able to redeem a US pre-order code, and will only be able to download Region 2 (European) DLC, incompatible with non-European discs.

**May require setting the console to Brazilian Portuguese (not just Portuguese)
