The Australian Government's Classification Board, which determines ratings on video games and decides if they can be sold in the country, lays down the ruling.
In a New Jersey case in which a teen is suing her parents for tuition fees and other bills, the judge fears kids will try to sue their parents to get gadgets.
The edited version of the troubled game has passed the Classification Board, garnering an MA15+ rating.
Even with Australia's new R18+ rating, Saints Row IV is deemed to push beyond acceptable limits for the local censors, and has been refused classification.
It's far from perfect, but I'm not sure there's another game out there that can cram in the sheer amount of addictive absurdity that Saints Row IV manages to pull off.
The controversial game remains "banned" after being put before the Classification Review Board.
The bidding on THQ's assets has closed, with Gearbox Software, Nordic Studios and 505 Games walking away with the lot.
More information on the Saints Row "banning" has emerged, and the IGEA has issued an official comment on the board's decision.
Having been cajoled to within an inch of his sanity by Stephen Colbert to join Twitter, President Bill Clinton does it for himself.
THQ's properties are to be sold off to several other games publishers as the studio finally closes its doors.
