Oh I didn't know it was censored, although a lot of GTA games and others are. Thanks for that idea I'm gonna do that, but it the UK version censored at all?
Thanks again, now I get to pay cheaper, for the real game. Thanks.
No problem. You can definitely get GTA4 cheaper from the UK and this goes for pretty much all games, especially now with the exchange rate.
The censorship for GTA4 is supposed to be pretty minor and nobody ever officially confirmed what was changed. The wikipedia entry has some information but I'm pretty sure there was more cut out than what they list. I'm 99% sure that some of the swearing was cut out, especially excessive swearing like random NPCs shouting at you and some usage of the word "cunt."
Also while the entry says that only the PS3 version was censored the last couple of paragraphs suggest that the PC version was the only one uncut and I think the last line should read "Therefore, in Australia, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of Grand Theft Auto IV remain cut, while the PC release has been released completely uncut."
It bugs the crap out of me that anything gets censored at all and I'll go to lengths to get an uncensored version. I was quite pissed off recently when I rented Silent Hill: Homecoming and found that it had been censored and obviously no effort whatsoever had gone into the editing process which just ended up looking really silly as a result.
