Banned in the U.S.A.
Posted on Wednesday, June 20 @ 21:10:21 PST by Duke_FerrisWell, it looks like we get de-facto censorship in the U.S. anyway, as both Sony and Nintendo say they won't allow the now-rated-AO Manhunt 2. Sad, but at least it's not the government stepping in and making it illegal.
Just market forces and peer pressure at work. Too bad the general public are such ignorant morons, but I find a hard time faulting Sony or Nintendo from a business standpoint. I would love to see Microsoft step up to the plate on this one and establish once and for all that they have a huge set of balls.
Of course, they probably won't, so we can all expect a toned-down, wimpier version of Manhunt 2 so they can get that M rating. Take 2 and Rockstar are businesses as well, after all. They are unlikely to just cancel the game now that it's done and tell the man not to fuck with their art.
And Rockstar, you heard it here first - if there's a patch that mysteriously shows up to restore the game to it's original condition, Game Revolution will host it on our servers. We'll distribute it far and wide, because even if Manhunt 2 sucks, it's your game and your artistic vision. Nobody should mess with that.
