Default Offended Or Upset About Hot Coffee? Make $35!

Quote:
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.

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.

It was advertised as MA, but its content was AO.

Who couldn't use an extra $35? It's not like I play the damn game anymore.

edit: I might play it once more.
