Grand Theft Auto IV publisher Take-Two Interactive has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Transit Authority over the CTA's decision to pull GTA IV ads from their busses. Take-Two is looking for at least $300,000 and for the advertisements to run.
Go Take Two GO!
Like it really matter that they took out those ads. Every gamer that aren't living in a cave knows about GTA IV anyways. But yeah you show em Take-Two!
They need the money
Yeah the money would be good for them
Ads such as these usually run on a timed contract basis. Doesn't matter who knows it's coming or not, it's business and T2 paid for that spot for a signed period of time. If CTA doesn't have a good reason other than "cuz Jack Thompson said so" then T2 has all right to take legal action.
I really don't think it's the money. 300k wouldn't be much to them. It's the principle of the matter. If the transit are going to be cowardly and give in to the soccer mum's demands (and jt's demands), they deserve to be sued. There was not a single wrong with those ads and we all know it.
good the chicago transit is corrputed anyways
The CTA is bankrupt, yet is funded by taxpayers. I hope Take 2 takes them to the cleaners.
if you read the article the reason seems to be FOX news. So I say burn down that moronic "news" company.
