By now, Fallout 3 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) fans are no doubt familiar with the classification troubles that Bethesda encountered in Australia. Now, if you Australian gamers out there are thinking that you'll be getting a different version from everybody else, well, that's not the case.
Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP of PR and marketing, has revealed that the changes that had to be made in order for Fallout 3 to be released in Australia will be present in all of the game's versions. According to Hines, the Australian release will be "identical to both the UK and North American versions in every way, on every platform."
The changes we've heard about have been purely cosmetic so far. The drug mechanic's still there but Bethesda had to remove any real-world drug references from Fallout 3, replacing them with fictional names. Some drug usage animations have also reportedly been cut.
