San Andreas may get banned in New Zealand

Radio New Zealand recently reported that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been called in for re-classification after it was found that it may contain sexual content. The Classification Office slapped a "R18" sticker onto the game back in 2004, because of its extreme crime and violence. Being the fact that an "R18" rating is the highest a game can be rated in New Zealand, if they find that the game indeed has sexual content on the game it may get banned in the country. Investigation will start soon.

Also interesting to mention is the following quotes from recent shows of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" with the ever so funny Conan himself.

“Parents across the country are furious because the video game ‘Grand Theft Auto San Andreas’ contains hidden sex scenes. … Yeah, the parents say, ‘We bought our kids Grand Theft Auto so they could be exposed to violent carjackings, not sex.’”
"The other day, former President Clinton played golf with Yankee manager Joe Torre. Apparently they spent most of the time trying to figure out who's a bigger pain in the ass, Hillary Clinton or George Steinbrenner."

If you don't know why I mentioned that last quote, then I would like to remind you that Hillary is one of the reasons San Andreas got rated Adults only.

I'm live in NZ and I haven't heard about gta:sa getting banned. I dont see why it's getting banned though. Here Gta:sa is R18 for containg violence and offensive language but Playboy the Mansion is only R16. Why don't they just add to the GTA:SA rating R18 contains violence, offensive language and sex scenes :bashhead:

PeeWee i'd prefur you not to say shit about New Zealand. I have recently spent 3 weeks there for holiday and its a nice country and again these accusations about GTA: SA Being banned i have to doubt these ones aswell.

NZ have a cable TV channel called Spice TV which shows Pornography like hardcore sex nothing is covered everything is shown not like the crappy Playboy channel.

So if GTA: SA is going to banned i would suggest this channel would be banned aswell since its dedicated to SEX.

And for you Conan fans HE SUCKS! his not funny his a redhead wanker who graduated harvard but couldnt get a real job so he made a shit TV program :)
