Fallout 3 banned downunder?

Joystiq are reporting:

We didn't think Fallout 3 was close enough to completion for a rating, but the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification has already refused to classify the title, effectively banning it from sale in the country. The game be resubmitted, with edits, in the hopes it meets the gudelines for MA15+ rating. If Grand Theft Auto IV could do it, we have no doubt that Bethesda will find a way to edit the game for sales in the Land Down Under. So much for the Bloody Mess perk.​
While Kotaku are saying:

Yes, the rumour was true. The Office of Film and Literature Classification has handed an RC to Bethesda's Fallout 3, making it illegal to sell the game in Australia. It's not known at this stage if the ban was for drug use, as the original rumour states, or gore as I was predicting.​
I don't get to play Fallout 3. Hallelujah! I've been saved! For Aussie's who did want to play it, NMA gives you the bad news:

This means that Fallout 3 is banned for sale, hire, public exhibition or importation into Australia, carrying a maximum fine of $275,000 and/or 10 years jail.​
Gosh. However will Australians who want to play Fallout 3 get a hold of it now?

Thanks Wyrmlord!
