2k Games has revealed Australia is set to receive the full uncut version of Duke Nukem Forever.
I was amongst a fair few Australian gamers who were unsure if "Duke Nukem Forever" would ever get through to Australia with our strict gaming censorship laws.
Now, all Australians can breathe a sigh of relief because the Duke has official been rated by Australian censors and it's coming raw and uncensored just like Duke should be.
Duke Nukem is rated MA15+ in Australia and is scheduled for release this May. Hail To The King Baby!
If your wondering why we were worried that it would be modified or not even available check out some of our exclusive screenshots via the 360-HQ Games Database and watch the new developer interview which I have attached below, that should fill in the blanks.

The Xbox 360 has enjoyed its best ever US sales month in December, according to the latest NPD sales data released. PS3's total sales for November-December are just 1.74 million compared to Xbox 360's 3.27 million.
Although the DS was the highest selling system of the month, the 360 recorded its best ever figures, shifting 1.9 million units, and was the only console to see a year-on-year sales increase. Impressive figures, considering it ran out of stock before the end of the month.
NPD also revealed the US top 10 for the entire year, with Black Ops coming out on top, just as it did in the UK. Here's how the chasing pack measured up:

LOS ANGELES — Opening statements in the first-of-its kind Xbox 360 criminal hacking trial were delayed here Wednesday after a federal judge unleashed a 30-minute tirade at prosecutors in open court, saying he had “serious concerns about the government’s case.”
“I really don’t understand what we’re doing here,” US District Judge Philip Gutierrez roared from the bench.
Gutierrez slammed the prosecution over everything from alleged unlawful behavior by government witnesses, to proposed jury instructions harmful to the defense. When the verbal assault finally subsided, federal prosecutors asked for a recess to determine whether they would offer the defendant a deal, dismiss, or move forward with the case that was slated to become the first jury trial of its type. A jury was seated Tuesday.
Among the judge’s host of complaints against the government was his alarm that prosecutors would put on two witnesses who may have broken the law.
One is Entertainment Software Association investigator Tony Rosario, who secretly video-recorded defendant Matthew Crippen allegedly performing the Xbox mod in Crippen’s Los Angeles suburban house. The defense argues that making the recording violates California privacy law. The other witness is Microsoft security employee Ken McGrail, who analyzed the two consoles Crippen allegedly altered. McGrail admitted that he himself had modded Xboxes in college.
“Maybe two of the four government witnesses committed crimes,” the judge said from the bench. “I think it is relevant and the jury is going to hear about it—both crimes.”
The government had fought to keep the witness conduct a secret from the jury.
Crippen is charged with two counts of violating the anticircumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and faces a maximum five years for each count if convicted. The government maintains Crippen, a hotel car-parking manager, ran a small business from his Anaheim home modifying the firmware on Xbox 360 optical drives to make them capable of running pirated copies of games.
The judge on Wednesday even backtracked on an earlier ruling that had prohibited Crippen, 28, from raising a “fair use” defense at trial."
Guns 'N Roses frontman Axl Rose files lawsuit against Activision Blizzard today claiming the Publisher allegedly broke agreement not to include Slash while also including "Welcome to the Jungle" in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
Guns 'N Roses frontman Axl Rose filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard today claiming the company violated a deal by using imagery of guitarist Saul Hudson (aka Slash) while also including the band's hit song "Welcome to the Jungle" in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
According to Reuters, Activision "fraudulently induced" Rose by authorizing use of the song and told him they would not make reference "to the former GNR member or his subsequent band Velvet Revolver" in Guitar Hero III. Rose would later discover "an animated depiction of Slash, with his signature black top hat, long dark curly hair, dark sunglasses and nose-piercing" was featured on the box.
He also said the song "Sweet Child 'O Mine" was used in an online promotion for Guitar Hero III while only being licensed for Guitar Hero II.
"This lawsuit is about protecting Guns N' Roses and 'Welcome to the Jungle,' and is about holding Activision accountable for its misuse of these incredibly valuable assets," Rose's lawyer Skip Miller told Reuters. "The relief we are seeking is disgorgement of profits and compensatory and punitive damages."
Rose is seeking $20 million in damages from sales of the Guitar Hero III. Activision has not responded to requests for comment.
