    "if the game is to be recoded for the PC or 360, then it will need to be re-coded."

    I'm against outright banning in this case, but they could expect the rating.. If that's a problem, simply make a less violent sadistic game.. It's as easy as that..

    I'm all for ratings and ensuring kids dont have access to content their parents deem unfit for them (hence the ratings system).

    But a big F**K YOU to the BBFC and all those people that are telling me I'm not able to judge for myself whether I want to play it or not! I'm in my 30's and have been playing violent games since Infernal Runner and have yet to have my mind irrepairably warped! :worried:

    Hmm -- couldn't Take-Two do a "Steam" sort of distribution? Pay online and download it to your PC? (PC version, ofc!). I know many ppl hate Steam, but at least it means Take-Two get the profits directly and we get the game...

    Obviously if you can't control your temper then you may need some help.

    I'm not sure if I'm against this or not, obviously there is a point where games stop being art and become sick and twisted. I don't really mind violence at all, but a game like this, where it seems like the developers have some kind of wierd fetish for mutilating people kind of scares me. I mean do they just sit there and imagine different ways they can cut people up or kill them. I don't think anyone who plays it will be affected too much unless they are really young or very impressionable, but I still have to wonder about someone who makes games like this.

    hehehe

    i also would suggest if the international world is against you, then just tweak the game. its much easier than recoding the whole thing to PC or something...

    that way u dont waste the whole development and all the man-hours uve invested in this game...

    but if u keep insisting that your ideas of butchering people in as many ways as possible CANNOT be toned-down to accomodate the international view of such subject...

    then, im sorry. understand how we see it and we'll understand how you see it.

    Let's hope Microsoft picks up on this game for the Xbox as last resort. I should mention that Manhunt 2 for the Wii is being developed by Rockstar Toronto (which is untypical of Canadians). However, since the game's on pause right now, they're probably on the company patio right now, lighting up (which is typical).

    How should I say... "fabriqué au Canada?"

    This Just Might Work!!!

    I remember some years ago, when turok was banned from sale in GAME stores, unless they made the blood green, rather than the good old fashioned red.

    Maybe Rockstar could be onto a winner with this idea.....But I have my doubts.

    change it to zombies! Worked for carmageddon ;)

    But seriously, don't ban the game, just slap a big fat 18 sticker and maybe a few extra warnings on it and be done with it.

    Censorship = bad, no matter what the reason

    What pisses me off the most is that a ratings board full of prudes are telling me what I can and can't play. Yes, ratings are designed to stop kiddies from playing the game and retailers and parents should follow them, but a select group of people telling me what I can and can't do? Get ****ed. I'm an adult, I can make my own decisions.

    I want to play this game the way Rockstar designed it, full of gore and sick, twisted violence, not some watered down garbage where rainbows come out of wounds.

    The BBFC haven't banned a game since 1997 in the UK. To be banned this game has to be pretty twisted. Maybe, just maybe they have a point here?

    BULL___!

    Are you suggesting that kiddy porn is ok?
    What about propaganda saying everyone from group X should be killed?
    What about me spamming the internet making false claims about you personally?

    Sometimes society has to say that it's NOT OK to say or portray whatever you want.

    Quoted for truth

    They should have banned the first one. They didn't. Now all of a sudden this is shocking media that needs to be kept from public view? Sorry, I don't buy it. I could see if they blocked the release of Hostle 1 and 2, SAW 1-3, and other violent displays in effort to curb such media, but they haven't. Atleast not to my knowledge. So I fail to see any gain from them putting their foot down on Manhunt 2.
