Take-Two confirms adult content in PSP's Manhunt 2

manhunt2leakTake-Two Interactive announced that some hackers revealed unedited adult content that was still contained within Manhunt 2. Hmm… This sounds familiar…

As of now, the adult content only appears in the PSP version of the game, not the PS2 or Wii versions.

According to the statement from Take-Two, the hacked adult content is just a tiny portion of what was originally set to appear in Manhunt 2. As you know, the game went back to the drawing boards and was modified for an M rating in August.

Jeez, Take-Two. Just put on some more meat and throw yourself into a wolf pit, why don’t you? The media and video game critics will surely go crazy over this over the next few days.

This time around, though, Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick came clean immediately about the rumors. (In the end, it was Take-Two who ballooned the San Andreas fiasco to epic portions.) He said:

"I stand behind the game and the ESRB ratings process. It is unfortunately the case that no one in the entertainment software industry is immune from hacking. We hope that consumers will not engage in hacking or download illegally modified copies of our games. We encourage them to enjoy our games as they are meant to be played. We would also like to emphasize that Manhunt 2 is intended for an audience aged 17 and above."

The rest of the statement was as followed:

"Multiple edits were made to revise Manhunt 2 for its M-rated version.

Hackers apparently have altered one of those edits to produce an illegally modified version of the game that can only be played on an unauthorized, modified PlayStation Portable handheld system.

All of the game material, and especially these specific edits, was submitted to and reviewed by the ESRB in accordance with requirements regarding disclosure that were enacted two years ago and any contrary suggestion is inaccurate and irresponsible."
