'''New Zealand''' is a country in the southern hemisphere and is a neighbour (but not a bordering country) to [[Australia]], [[wp:Fiji|Fiji]], [[wp:New Caledonia|New Caledonia]] and other islands.
   
The country's [[OFLC (NZ)|OFLC]] (Office of Film and Literature Classification) rating system is sometimes considered to be slightly harsher than that of the Australian [[OFLC]]. For example, Australians can buy [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] at the age of 15, while New Zealanders must be over 18 to purchase or rent the game. It should, however, be noted that New Zealand ''has'' an 18+ rating for games -- Australia lacks this outright, meaning that particularly violent or sexually explicit games may be refused classification and banned from sale. New Zealand sells the full version of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], while Australia has a censored version.

New Zealand is a country in the southern hemisphere and is a neighbour (but not a bordering country) to AustraliaFijiNew Caledonia and other islands.

The country's OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) is responsible for the rating system for games. New Zealand sold the full versions of Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV, while Australia had censored versions with some content removed. This is because New Zealand has an 18+ rating for games, whilst Australia lacked this until 2013, meaning that particularly violent or sexually explicit games may have been refused classification and banned from sale or required substantial editing to meet the highest (MA15) rating in Australia. Consequently it was common for Australian gamers to illegally import their R18 titles from NZ.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • On the radio chat show "Chattersphere" a man calls saying he lost his children at Del Perro Pier, after a moment this man starts screaming and crying, as Lazlow or Michelle Minx goes to cut him of he says "I'm going back to New Zeal.." which is strange because his accent sounds very American. this is the first reference to New Zealand in a Grand Theft Auto game yet.
