Source, and press release...

Well, I had been following this games development, before all the "AO/ban the game" controversy started..and I must say...I might pick this game up still...but wait until I find out exactly what was cut from this game that made it so...crazy. I was wondering if there was anyone else interested in the title and if anyone would like to discuss (not argue) about what they think of this series and decision to release the game altered, etc.

I was kinda shocked when I heard it got an AO rating. I'm not really gonna play the game, anyway, so it doesn't matter me that much >_>...

I think I might buy this game. What got me interested in this game was, of course, the controversy.

I was interested before the controversy, and now knowing it was toned down I certainly will not buy it, unless it was like a small texture change or something. But odds are it was something bigger.

It upsets me that Nintendo would not allow this on the Wii as an AO title, and that Rockstar did not properly fight this.

Censorship wins. I cry.

Wow AO was it that gruesome or sexual. And I wonder why the only next gen system it's on is the Wii. I guess they know more people own PS2's than 360s and PS3s. I know I own one.

Reality is that because it was Rockstar the ESRB was super hard on them, and not that this game was any worse than your average super violent M rated game. Anyway, this proves that the ESRB needs some sort of reform. The AO rating means that console makers wont let you have a game on their system if it is very violent and not pornographic. Either the title of the rating needs to be changed (so it is no longer associated with porn) or the M and AO labels need to have the ages associated with them adjusted.

That is my short version of that rant.
