Australian Classification Review Board has denied classification for Saints Row 4. This was unanimously determined by the board.
“In the Review Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV could not be accommodated within the R 18+ classification as drug use related to incentives and rewards is not permitted,” their statement reads.
“Computer games classified RC cannot be sold, hired, demonstrated or advertised in Australia. The Review Board convened on Monday 29 July 2013 in response to an application from Koch Media GmbH, to review the decision made by the Classification Board on 19 June 2013 to classify Saints Row IV Refused Classification.”
The game comes out August 20 and it doesn’t look like Koch Media will be appealing this decision again.
