Saints Row 4
September Release for Saints Row IV in Australia

Saints Row IV will release in Australia in September, distributor All Interactive Entertainment has confirmed. The bonkers open world title will now hit down under on September 12th on Xbox 360.

"Australian fans of Saints Row IV will obviously be disappointed with this delay," said AIE director Robert Kingston. "We have used every means at our disposal to minimise the delay, but unfortunately it just was not possible to keep the same street date as the rest of the world."

The version of the game coming to Australia will be modified, following the refusal of the nation’s ratings board to pass the game uncut. This was largely thanks to the inclusion of drug use as an incentive or reward.

The offending mission has now been removed, amounting to about 20 minutes of cut content.

To make up for the delay, a free Presidential Pack DLC code featuring masks and outfits resembling famous American presidents will be offered with all pre-orders.

Well, I feel sad, most of the time it´s the offending content and missions that make those games so funny at times, the certain missions with Nuns in Hitman: Absolution, No Russian in Modern Warfare 2 and such stuff.
Those Australians deserve those 20 minutes! Deal with it rating boards, you suck!

Oh cool, an edited version of the game, releasing less than 1 week before the mother of open-world video games, GTA V. Not only that, but Aussies, who have little to no care about their own political crap, are getting political crap from the US of A!

I really want this game, I really do because I am a big Saints Row fan, but I just can't. Online pass for local co-op... yeah right!

As an Australian it doesn't really matter, if someone in Australia wanted the uncut version they could just import from the UK at a cheaper price.

As for the FREE dlc, im sure plenty of us Aussies want to play as an American president NOT.

I heard GTA5 got through uncut, I guess it goes to show you can get anything past the classification board if you throw enough $$$ at them.

Necrophilia is not warranted in ANY game, and the sick fuck who came up with the idea and the person who gave the go ahead for that idea to be put in the game should be fired. I will probably be down voted for the last part, but I don't care because it will be from the gaming sickos out there anyway.

@6...I said pretty much the same thing a couple of days ago on a different post and I agree with you completely...How the hell can the ACB ban a game for drug use as an incentive yet let another game through with necrophilia in it...I don't care if it's implied or not...necrophilia is necrophilia no matter what way you look at it and I don't want that in any form of media period...

Off the record though...I'd love to play as Clinton...He seems well suited in the Saints Row franchise...

@6 Australia has the highest drug use in any developed nation, that's why its a hot topic for censorship, as far as I know they don't really have much of a necrophilia problem

@9 Games from Australia and the UK/Europe are ALL in PAL format, so if you were to import a copy from the UK it WILL work on your console and wont have any content cut from the game. I did this with L4D2.

@10 You can joke about it all you want, but this opens the door for all sorts of sick stuff. Rockstar has lost all credibility in my eyes, and I will most likely never buy another game made by them again.

@6 Unfortunately Clinton is not one of the masks You can chose from Washington, Lincoln, G.W. Bush and Obama. Just though I would put that out in case no one knew. Also the mission in question is Shaundi's loyalty mission. Wonder how this will effect the achievements tied to it.

@13 Have fun with it all you want, but im going to leave this thread to the kiddies like yourself to play with, because its obvious there's no much intelligent conversation to be had in here, but its just as I suspected.

My copy is already in the mail from the UK and it will arrive before the release date here. Pathetic.
