On August 16 Saints Row IV's Australian distributor All Interactive Entertainment posted the above picture on its Facebook page under the heading 'building Saints Row IV', meaning that copies of Saints Row IV were in an All Interactive Entertainment warehouse. On that very same day we reported that Saints Row IV was delayed in Australia, with some reporting 'production issues'. If there were production issues then why were copies of the game already in the distributors warehouse, ready to be sent to retailers?
There appears to a good explanation for this.
We contacted All Interactive Entertainment to ask why the game was being delayed, they refused to provide any official explanation, and merely stated that the game would be released in New Zealand on August 22.
Leaving us to draw the obvious conclusion: the images shown on All Interactive Media's Facebook page are not the censored Australian copies of Saints Row IV, they are regular copies en route to New Zealand.
Well, that would be the reasonable conclusion at least.
