Saint's Row IV classification refusal upheld by the review board

After Saint's Row IV was originally refused classification by the Australian Classification Board, local publisher AIE appealed the decision.

According to Player Attack, which first picked up the news, a three person Review Board was convened to review the original decision, and upheld the ACB's reason for the banning as far as drug use goes, but didn't mention the (frankly ludicrous and offensive) reasoning regarding the alien anal probe weapon.

The in-depth reasons for the Review Board upholding the ACB's decision will be published on the Classification Branch web site soon.

In the mean time, Deep Silver already confirmed plans to submit an edited version of the game, as evidenced by the game's 'Australian Edition' being present at PAX Australia with a 'Check the Classification' plaque above the booth on the show floor.
