House investigates Rockstar | Posted by djshamrock on Jul 27th 05 05:09 AM
The Hot Coffee Mod has got Rockstar into some hot water (no pun intended.) Rockstar North is about to be hunted down because of boobies. Gang Warfare Good, Boobies Bad.
"Just after 7 pm on Capitol Hill today, the House of Representatives voted 355 to 21 to support a Federal Trade Commission inquiry into Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The purpose of the probe will be to determine if take-Two Interactive and its publishing subsidiary Rockstar Games deceived the voluntary Entertainment Software Ratings Board when it submitted Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."
Today's vote advanced House Resolution 376, introduced by Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI). In Upton's words, he is "leading the Congressional effort to determine if a best selling video game maker intentionally deceived the industry's ratings board to avoid an 'Adults-Only' rating."
In a statement, Upton recently said he was "outraged by the brazenness of Rockstar Games in their effort to do an end-run around the ratings system.... Rockstar Games' deceit has severely undermined the integrity of the ratings system."
