GTA3 banned in Aus

No hookers!

The Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) has upheld a ban on the sale and demonstration of Grand Theft Auto III in Australia. This is the first country where the game has been banned. The reason for the ban, according to our sources, is the presence of hookers in the game, and in particular a scene where the player can kill a hooker to claim his money back. A revised version of the game from Take 2 will be available sometime in January 2002. Related Feature - Grand Theft Auto III review
