That sound you can hear right now is the sigh of relief emanating from Rockstar’s Sydney office. Gamespot AU is reporting that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars – the first GTA game to appear on DS – has escaped the Classification Board’s banhammer and snagged itself an MA15+ rating. Crucially, Rockstar has confirmed that no edits were necessary to secure this rating and the Australian version is the same as the rest of the world’s. Hurrah!

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars rated MA 15+ down under


  • Starting to think the OFLC has one of those magic 8-balls that they consult to see if a game gets released in this country or not.

  • That’s it? Nothing? The OFLC are fine with it?


    May have to finally buy a DS for this one.

  • The actual process involves micheal atkinson chomping on the disc with that big grin, if the game can still be played afterwards it gets banned, nothing pure can surive that. Thankfully this proccess also cuts Atkinson’s life expectancey short.

  • ….Madworld AND Chinatown Wars got through where Dark Sector and Fallout 3 originally failed?

    It’s a trap. Has to be.

  • …even if it was edited in Australia, as if you wouldn’t just buy it ‘untouched’ from the states. and pay half the zany australian price.
