Under the terms of the settlement, class members will be able to claim benefits if they swear that they: (a) bought a copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas before July 20, 2005; (b) were offended and upset by the ability of consumers to modify and alter the game's content using the third-party Hot Coffee modification; (c ) would not have bought the game had they known that consumers could modify and alter the game's content using the third-party Hot Coffee modification; and (d) would have returned the game, upon learning the game could be modified and altered, if they thought this possible. Settlement class members who attest to these facts may apply for benefits that range from an exchange of the game disk for an edited copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to a cash payment of up to $35 for consumers who submit detailed proofs of purchase.

the issue is just the rating, right?

cause if it's over the actual content, then wtf is happening to freedom of speech? :wtf:

this is lame. i have a copy of this that has hot coffee in it. i'm not going to do this just to get $35 back. i guess freedom of speech is no longer around because people will always complain no matter what.

To me it seems like plastering TV-MA all over a show and then not being able to say **** or show a gaping vageen.

OMG you mean someone could change a game to make it do something dirty?! Say it ain't so! I mean, people could do heinous things like create topless skins for video game characters. That would be horrible and totally destroy society as we know it!

Wait, you mean that's been happening since...umm...forever? In that case we better ban all video games period! Can't risk exposing the children to that kind of filth!




I hate people. I really do.:headexplode:

The "Shake it" thing in Duke Nukem could be turned off and password-protected and also the dancer was just a sprite animation. :p

Duke Nukem was the game when I was a kid. :p
