With the recent Fallout 3 censorship fiasco in Australia finally behind the company, Bethesda Softworks can now focus on the game's retail debut this October 28. However, in the aftermath of the event, product manager Pete Hines spoke out on what he thinks about the varying censorhip laws that almost banned his company's product in Australia.

"The frustrating thing for us is that the standards and rules can be so varied across territories, that we work with five or six ratings agencies and each one has different 'hot buttons," he said to CVG in an interview. Although he refused to specifically speak about the incident in Australia, he implied that multiple censorship laws can only lead to frustration. He added:

"In one place nudity is a big deal but violence is fine, and in another place drugs are a problem but nudity is fine. I guess that's the way of the world - not every country is the same. You're not aiming at one target, you're aiming at six different ones, worrying about how each one will feel about different things."

Fallout 3 will be available for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 platforms.
