Even with the R18+ rating in place, Saints Row IV required a few alterations before it was let through by the Australian Classification Board.

So, while our friends across the ditch will be getting the game, it won't be the one the rest of the world is enjoying.

But the New Zealand arm of EB Games has found a way to turn this negative into a positive - just not for Australia.

A NeoGAF user by the handle "Gouda Jouji" received the below EB NZ promotion in his inbox, which makes it extremely clear that New Zealand is getting an uncut version of the game.

And just to rub it in, towards the end of the email it takes a shot at our less fortunate neighbours across the Tasman:

"Secure your Presidential Edition of Saints Row IV today and receive an UNCUT version of the game, not the cutback watered down anti wub wub Aussie version!"
