Prostitution options excluded from Aussie+NZ version of GTA IV

NOW im not disappointed! that isnt much... can someone tell me what they do in the car lol? what u can see


http://au.gamespot.com/news/show_blo...ic_id=26375034



When Rockstar confirmed that Australian versions of Grand Theft Auto IV had been modified to better fit with local classification laws, many gamers cried foul and demanded to know exactly what had been taken out. Rockstar has so far refused to reveal exactly what the difference is between Aussie versions of their hit game with other versions around the world, saying only that the changes were "not significant" .

GameSpot AU can now explain in some detail at least one change that has been made. Having just received a region one version of the game, we tested out a few scenarios and only found one difference so far: how the game deals with prostitution. In Australian versions of GTA IV, Niko can indeed pick up prostitutes, but once he takes said sex worker to a secluded area, the game camera shifts to a tight shot of the rear of the vehicle the pair are in and cannot be moved.

In the region one version, once Niko finds a secluded spot, an extra option pops up, asking whether Niko wants the $20 or the $50 service. Once the appropriate "service" is chosen, the act begins, but instead of a static camera, players can freely rotate the game camera around the vehicle.

But in all other aspects, the Australian version and the region one version seem identical so far. GameSpot AU will report any further differences it spots as we explore the overseas version of the game.

Considering some of the extremely 'liberal' commercials i've seen from Aussie/Kiwi TV, i was very surprised at this.
Do you goes use PAL version of the game? If so just get one shipped from over here in the UK.

In the unscensored version you can see the act happnening in the car, depending on what you've chosen(handjob, blowjob, or basic root).
This isn't really anything to worry about but I've got my UK copy anyway, it was $50 cheaper

^Same, mine from the US should be here tomorrow hopefully. Why the Americans pay only $50 and we pay $120 for the game here I have no idea. Some people were complaining that the special edition costed $100 in America, which only works out to $105AUD.

I dont think its that much of a thing they have taken out but i cant understand why they would, for instance, GTA IV is rated 15 in AUS right? all you see in the cars is the actual act, her bouncing on top of niko moaning, the thing is though you watch any 15 rated movie with a sex scene, its alot more graphical than a video game...

i cant stand rating systems

In no way is sex worse than something like pulling some old chick out of her car and shooting her in the gut.
What Australia needs is a f*cking R18+ rating.

Haha, I seriously lol'd at this.
What, you can't fuck a damn prostitute but oh, Jacob can smoke weed in the car, you can go deal cocaina with Elizabeth and you can kill certain persons with executions. Go right ahead!

lol.. Australia's beginning to look like fucking america. Washed up rules. Maybe they should call Sydney Liberty City..

The only thing you are really missing out on is some of the hilarious dialogue in the car. The things they say are funny.

Let me ask any AUS owners though, can you get all of the dances in the strip club?

****Minor Spoiler****



If you buy all 3 dances? I think that is more graphic than the far away looks into the car. The two girls simulating eating each other out and simulating banging with much closer camera? They are half naked unlike the hookers??

Amazing how we cant get sex in a video game, but in the TV miniseries 'Underbelly', the show has raunchy and very obscene sex scenes at an 8:30 time slot.
