Witcher 2 edits out sexual favors for Australian release

Thanks to Australia's namby-pamby rating system, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be released with a minor edit for those residing in the country that gave us Prisoner: Cell Block H

"The modification was a small change we requested the developer to make to one scene during one the games side quests," said a Namco Bandai rep. "In the original version your character Geralt was given the choice of accepting sex 'as a reward' for successfully completing this particular side quest. The Australian Classification Board originally refused classification as they deemed the inclusion of 'sex as a reward' as not suitable for an MA15+ classification."

"The change is only minor, in that the character choice is now made automatically for him. The character and the side quest are still in the game but presented in a slightly different context."

Everything else in the game should remain intact, including all the other juicy sex scenes. Apparently random sex is okay, but not sex you've earned. Gotta love completely arbitrary regulations.
