I don't like this, cause pornographic stuff has no place in games really. It ends up being stupid.Someone whose brilliant quote got ignored said:If you're old enough to play Grand Theft Auto you're old enough to see this part

in the news here within the last couple of weeks, a 13 year old stabbed someone over a videogame.
i think the new rating is deserved. GTA should never be played by kids anyway =/
That's not the point. They didn't tell the ESRB there was disabled code in the game. Which is why there was an investigation to see if the game was inaccurately rated by the ESRB. Which as it turns out, it was, and now it's AO.Sub said:It was on the disk, but the fact is that you cannot view them unless you are directly trying to.
Source.There appears to be some confusion regarding the UK rating of GTA San Andreas. Many suggested that the recent re-rating from M to AO in the US would lead to a re-rating in the UK, but Roger Bennett, director general of ELSPA, has confirmed that the game will retain its 18+ rating for the foreseeable future. However, this may change. Bennett said his organisation will "wait to hear what Rockstar's investigation throws up".
[YELLING]BECAUSE R* DIDN'T TELL THE ESRB ABOUT THE MINI-GAME[/YELLING]Sub said:Alright, I've got a question. Why is God of War, a game that is much much much more violent, has topless women and has a mini-sex-game where you have sex with two women at once rated M instead of AO? Isn't that much worse then whatâs in GTA: SA? I mean, at least in GTA: SA, you couldn't get to the content unless you were actively trying to.
In order to accurately rate a game. The ESRB must know EVERYTHING. Which they didn't, therefore, they inaccurately rated GTA: SA. It's not a hard concept to understand.Sub said:So? If they had told them, it wouldn't have been a big deal? That doesn't make any sense.
Because the ESRB was stuck between a rock and a hard place and R* payed the price. They brought this upon themselves when they only disabled the code, instead of removing it entirely.Sub said:Look, I understand that they didn't know about the hidden sex scene. The fact is, however, if that if they did know about it, it would have still be rated M (i'll say again, God Of War got rated M and it was much worse). Why should the fact that they didn't mention it change the game rating?
