Who spilled Hot Coffee? The man who uncovered gaming's greatest sex scandal

Not for the first time that month, Patrick Wildenborg was disoriented. With a one year-old baby in the house he was familiar with the fug of a deep sleep cut short by noise. But this awakening was different. It was prompted not by an infant's wail but the hysteria of a telephone ringing in the night. Eyes still closed, Wildenborg lifted the receiver.

“Hello, Patrick?” The accent on the end of the line was unmistakably New Yorker. “This is Rockstar. The game developer. We want to thank you for what you've done.” (Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, PC, PS2, Xbox)

I still have my launch copy of GTA:SA. Never seen the sex, but years and years ago GameStop refused it as a trade-in due to the original rating. So now its the only ps2 game I still own. how much would those copies sell for on Ebay you think??

Weird, I thought it was only the PC version that could be modded?

Great article.

Yeah I was under that assumption also. GameStop must have not known that at the time. Otherwise it would have been traded in already.

I remember having to put these AO (adult only) rating label stickers on the remaining copies we had over the M rating. That lasted about a week until the games got pulled completely.
