Here's a painfully stupid question from an ignorant American:
Why don't they just cut Australia off?
I mean seriously, it's always Australia being a problem. It's always Australia that has to censor the game and in the case of Fallout 3, Australia is the one that caused the game to be changed for everywhere.
It's sort of like American textbooks - California doesn't want something in a textbook and since the companies don't want to make multiple versions of the same book and California is the biggest single customer, California gets to set the textbook standards for the country.
Does Australia really make up that significant a percentage of game sales that they can't just say to heck with them?
