just about to come on.......*UPDATE*

atleast they highlight the "You Download It!" part

but they showcase the ps2 version, and they interview a concerned parent and feature Hilary Clinton and the Re-rate GTA SanAndres Opinion.

they insert a little bit about how preeteens have access to M-rated games, but don't say it's parents fault for buying it!

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

I guess just about every single popular video game will have to be re-rated AO since nearly all of them have a "sex" or "nude" patch.

Don't you love it when people who don't understand the first thing about video games are deciding our future?

Gta3 had nude skins up for download years ago
and as it was pointed out Sims Had the nude patch, funny when you consider that ale males in the sims were not anotomicly correct and in the coffee mod CJ is not anotomicly correct.

In Max Payne 2, you could see Mona hude in the shower during normal play!

and as the NBC news failed to say the most sold Ps2 version has no way to get Into coffee mode!

It was a very short piece and only highlited the issue. They didn't really clarify which version was in question. The reporter is showing a copy of the console version. "The issue. who put it in there?... Hillary Clinton called for a federal investigation"
It's on Tivo if someone missed something.

edit: never mind.. the tivo seg.got deleted .. grrr..

Thats like saying a book should be given a higher rating because you can scribble the f word on the pages if you have access to a pen.

None of it matters because a user has to violate the EULA in order to access the content. Now if the content was simply in movie form on the CD, that would probably be grounds for changing the rating.
