In a completely unsurprising move, Rockstar has edited their latest offering, Manhunt 2, down to M standards. Along with the M rating comes the usual content descriptors that Rockstar gets for their games: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content and Use of Drugs.

In the press release, Captain Obvious (aka Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two) stated the obvious: "Manhunt 2 is an extraordinary game, and we eagerly anticipate its release in North America." As opposed to "Manhunt 2 is a horrible game and we dread it's impending release in North America."

There is no word from Rockstar on what exactly got cut from the game so it could receive a Mature rating. I think it would be interesting to find out what they cut, or maybe even have a release of the unedited version on PC where AO titles are allowed.

The edited game is currently slated for an October 31st launch on Wii, Playastion 2, and PSP in North America. Rockstar has not stated a release date for other regions around the world as of yet.

I want to play the AO version. Is anyone else sick of Rockstar and all the BS they do?
 
The timing is just too convenient, they had a M rated version on standby the whole time. So "lucky" for them they manage to have it out during the holiday season. LOL
 
What a surprise. Who is actually surprised by this stunning announcement?
 
This is just political crap. More than likely, whatever was edited from the game was inconseqential anyway. It will turn out it was like a barely visible tatoo on one of the characters or something stupid. That way they can say "We edited this version." and the ESRB can say "Oh, yeah. It's so much better." And then the parents groups feel like they did something and they get off everyone's case.
