What was cut from the Australian version of GTA IV?

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:10 AM MDT | By Neil
It's no secret that the version of GTA IV on sale in Australia and New Zealand is different to the game on sale in the rest of the world. Cuts had to be made to the game to ensure it was suitable for the highest rating that a video game can be given in Australia, MA15+. PalGN has now revealed full details on exactly what is missing from that version of the game.
"According to Mick, when players pick up a prostitute in the Australian version, there is no way to select a 'service' from the prostitute. The sexual intercourse sex animation has also been completely removed, so players will only see the car bounce from a locked rear-view. In the uncut version, after selecting a service from the prostitute, players can rotate the camera to see the prostitute's actions."
Australians are also missing out on the dynamic blood effects that other players will see in the game. There are no pools of blood, bloody footprints or tyre tracks in the censored version.

They don't miss much then. If it was a chunk of the storyline, or any important features then that would be fucked up.

The blood stuff I would miss a lot. Because that's what is really entertaining when I turn the sidewalks into my new road. Or when I shoot a person through the window of the car.

Prostitute thing I wouldn't miss, but it's still pretty funny they went that far to have those animations."Look, no hands!"

The blood that splatters on the car windows when someone (including Niko) inside a car gets shot is still in the cut version.

I posted this info on PALGN on May 9, guess they didn't see the post.
The bloody trye tracks and footprints are in the AUS version, albeit much less common.

Threre are no bulletholes, pools of blood, blood on clothes(Niko and his enemies) and the obvious hooker thing in the cut version. I'm very happy with my UK copy, tell you that much(cost $50 less incl. postage compared to buying a local copy from a store).
