Manhunt 2

http://videogames.yahoo.com/news-527782


Controversial game gets new rating
Will Manhunt 2 be deemed Adults Only or will Rockstar Games be forced to tone it down?
By Matt Slagle, AP Technology Writer

The makers of "Manhunt 2" - a violent video game that had been threatened with a sales-destroying adults-only rating - will release a toned-down version in October.

The initial version, in which gamers perform a series of killing moves as an amnesiac scientist who escapes from an asylum, had been scheduled for a July release.

But the launch was indefinitely delayed after the Entertainment Software Rating Board, an industry group, slapped it with an adults-only rating, for consumers 18 and older. It also faced bans in several European countries.

An "AO" rating would have essentially prevented the game from being sold. Large retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. don't stock "AO" games, and the three major console makers - Microsoft Corp., Nintendo Co. and Sony Corp. - do not allow "AO" games on their systems.

"Manhunt 2" maker Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. said the revamped version of the game received a less-stringent "M," or mature, rating for consumers age 17 or older.

It was unclear what changes were made to achieve the lower the rating. A telephone call to Take-Two seeking a more detailed explanation wasn't immediately returned.

Why is it necessary to make games that glorify murder?

Because they are purchased by the people that buy tickets en masse to movies that glorify murder.

So that when I go on killing sprees it's in a pixelated world and not this one.

is that a raaaiincooaaat? YES, IT IS!

i've been anticipating this one for a long time, but i'm displeased they had to tone it down. ah well... soon, with the wii, i'll be hackin into people without having to worry about cleanup.

.....Then, Huey did this. "Hip To Be Square". A song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should! Because it's not just about of the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trend, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. Hey Paul!
