Censors Force Fallout 3 Changes

Edge Online is reporting that the removal of real world drug references in Fallout 3 will be carried out worldwide. This was previously believed to only affect the Australian version, but apparently that’s not the case:

Calling the idea of an Australia-specific version of the game a (misconception,) Hines told us, (We want to make sure folks understand that the Australian version of Fallout 3 is identical to both the UK and North American versions in every way, on every platform.)

He continued, (An issue was raised concerning references to real world, proscribed drugs in the game, and we subsequently removed those references and replaced them with fictional names. To avoid confusion among people in different territories, we decided to make those substitutions in all versions of the game, in all territories.)

Thanks Ausir.
