Grand Theft Auto IV rated 18 in UK

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:16 AM MDT | By Neil
18 CertificateThe British Board of Film Classification today confirmed that Grand Theft Auto IV will carry an 18 certificate when it is released in the United Kingdom. The rating is identical to that given to almost every other GTA title released, and the BBFC awarded the rating without making any cuts. The game has now cleared its final hurdle before the planned April 29th release date.

Nice, I knew this was going to happen as it was leaked a few days ago in Microsoft e-mails, knew it was only a matter of time before they said it themselves.

Following the UK classification, I dont know if it was mentioned previously?
But I did a search on the Australian Classification board and came up with this...

GRAND THEFT AUTO IV Game (Multi Platform)
Classification MA 15+ (Not suitable for people under 15. Under 15s must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian)
Consumer Advice Strong violence, Strong coarse language, Drug and sexual references
Category Computer Games
Version ORIGINAL
Duration variable
Date of Classification 11 December 2007
Author ROCKSTAR NORTH
Publisher ROCKSTAR GAMES
Production Company ROCKSTAR GAMES
Country of Origin UK
Applicant TAKE 2 INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE
File Number T07/6147
Classification Number 5273444B

REF:GTAIV Australian Classification

Notice the date of classification, all in all very good news for Australian fans, one question that I raise though....is the version offered to Australia pre-edited by Rockstar to pass the ridiculously outdated rating system for games?
