Saints Row IV Being Pulled From Australian Stores

Copies of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected are being recalled across Australia. But don’t worry – it’s not another ban. The game’s distributor, Deep Silver, has made what it calls a “serious manufacturing error” – in other words, the game was released with the wrong classification, and we all know how militant Australia is over age certification of games – and all affected copies need to be pulled from stores.

Deep Silver has released the following statement:

Unfortunately over the weekend, it has come to light that the PlayStation 4 retail release of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected has a serious manufacturing issue and a nationwide recall is now underway in Australia.

A manufacturing issue has caused an incorrectly classified version of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for our territory to be released. This strictly affects PlayStation 4 retail versions.

All customers who have purchased the PlayStation 4 version of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected are encouraged to return to their retailer for a full refund.

Replacement copies with the correct content are on order and will arrive with retailers soon.

Saints Row IV was initially refused classification in Australia on first submission, but after some violent and sexual content was cut it was given a classification of MA15+. The recalled release also had an MA15+ classification, which suggests the version on the disk was the one that was previously banned.

If any Australians want a proper, unedited copy of Saints Row IV, they should get to their nearest store before it’s pulled from shelves.
