I'm almost sure I'll be escorted to the forums after posting this blog but too bad, I need to vent.
So it's only 3 more hours until GTA is launched, seeing as I live in Australia however I decided to order the uncensored (read: whoreishly amazing) version of GTA from play-asia. It however never dawned on me that customs could class this as a "restricted or prohibited good(s)". My brothers friends dad is a customs officer and apparently they are prohibiting the import of all uncensored versions of GTA. Yea I know... friend of a friend, doesn't sound like a reputable source.
A quick check on the customs website however reveals this...
Pornography and other objectionable material (restricted import)
"Includes computer games, computer generated images, films, interactive games and publications that describe, depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime cruelty, violence, terrorist acts or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults."
Has anyone had any experience importing games before, I've bought plenty of games off of ebay from overseas before, personally I think it sounds a bit hard to enforce but maybe that's me just wishfully thinking.
