GTA IV gets cut for Australia

Will carry a warning and everything.

Rockstar has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto IV has been cut in order to be granted a release in Australia.

The edited version was awarded the highest rating of MA15+, according to The Sydney Morning Herald, and carries the warning of "strong violence, strong coarse language, drug and sexual references".

There is no 18 rating in Australia because of all the kangaroos and dangerous spiders.

Previous instalments in the Grand Theft Auto series have also had to be edited in order to save the brains of the Australian public.

Earlier this week the BBFC cleared GTA IV for release in the UK with an 18 rating.

Grand Theft Auto IV will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 on 29th April.
