Jul 20 - Grand Theft Auto Rating Changed to 'Adults Only'
 

 
SAN FRANCISCO - The video game industry on Wednesday changed to adults-only the rating of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," a best-selling title in which explicit s3xual content can be unlocked with an Internet download.

ADVERTISEMENT

The decision followed intense pressure from politicians and media watch groups.

The game's producer, Rockstar Games, said it stopped making the current version of the game and is now working on a new version. It said it would provide new labels to any retailer willing to continue selling the version currently on store shelves, which had been rated "M" for mature.

Rockstar's parent company, Take Two Interactive, also admitted for the first time that the s3x scenes had been built into the retail version of that game — not just the PC version but also those written for Xbox and PlayStation2 consoles.

Company officials had previously suggested that a modification created by outsiders added the scenes.

"There is s3x content in the disc," said Take-Two spokesman Jim Ankner. "The editing and finalization of any game is a complicated task and it's not uncommon for unused and unfinished content to remain on the disc."

The s3x scenes had prompted outrage from parent's groups and politicians, who are demanding federal oversight of video game ratings.

In a statement, the president of the Entertainment Software Rating Board said the s3x scenes were programmed by Rockstar "to be inaccessible to the player."

But ESRB chief Patricia Vance also acknowledged that the "credibility and utility" of the industry-run board's initial "M" rating had been "seriously undermined."

Are you fu*kin serious? any game with s3x is now adults only? how fu*kin stupid are the people of the world today? I'd see if it was blatant s3xualization everywhere in the game.....but as much sh*t as people gotta go through to unlock a brief s3x minigame, theres no way in hell this should be a AO title.why cant they just monitor what their kids play or download? or not buy the fu*kin game for em?

first off, they said specifically you can't acutally see anything in the scenes. and second off all, wtf?

Mature Rating = 17 and up
Adults Only = 18 and up

whats the big fu*kin difference? only thing is you can't sell a game rated AO to a kid under 18.

i seen this as breaking news when attack of the show came on (on g4)

That's some sh*t, means walmart and kmart won't be carrying the game

And possibly other retailers too, who don't carry Adult Only...

Wasn't The Guy Game Mature? And it had t*ts in the game..

I dunno, 'animated violence' doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me..mature is good enough

exactly, the Guy Game had real t*ts in it, this game has fake computer people havin s3x, and you have to hack the game to see it. how many people that own a PS2 mod that sh*t? less then like 1% I'd say.

parents today dont wanna do anything. Thats to much like right to take the time to read the labels of the merchandise your are buying for your children. That would actually involve the act of parenting.

Them politicians and parents got some nerve. Most of them bi*ches watched pr0n and read Playboy when they were their kids age. And some of them kids probably seen Daddy doing the s3x game with they Mama. Most kids know how to lie and use a credit card and order online.
