Next Grand Theft Auto To Feature Sex Without Mod

from the stoking-the-fire dept

The controversy surrounding the sex scenes in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas rages on, but Rockstar Games is taking a new tack. Instead of the scenes having to be unlocked by a third-party modification, apparently screenshots for the next GTA game, for the PlayStation 3, show a number of sex scenes. With a lot of the fuss focusing on how the game's rating would/should have been changed if the hidden parts had been disclosed -- remember, all the violence and killing is fine, it's the consensual sex that's a problem -- it looks like Rockstar's just going to disclose the racy content instead of taking it out. Somehow it's doubtful this will get Jack Thompson off their back.

    What the hell are they gonna do when it has all the sex, is rated properly, AND the kids' parents STILL buy it for them when they are bugged?
    They will then try to make it illegal for even the parents to purchase.
    I've never played GTA, probably never will, but I am completely supporting Rockstar in this. This is the same idiocy as censoring heavy metal music in the 80's, or comic books in the 50's.
