Speaking at a digital media conference, Take-Two's chairman and CEO, Karl Slatoff, spoke out against the two Australian retailers that pulled Grand Theft Auto V off their stores' shelves.
Duh. The Cardinal Rule.
after they drowned in money from the million sales now say this ...
They have said this as far back as GTA San Andreas. It's not the first time that they have taken this stance on their game.
i cant wait to play this on the pc or am i supposed to say i'd rather complain about it every day on the forums with no intentions of ever buying it and talk about how other games are better. isn't that rule number one on forums or is that just in reference to game platforms only?
NO! I must stop everyone from playing it.YOU ALL MUST CONFORM TO MY LIKING !! I didn't even know kmart and target was in other countries lol
If the assholes that want it banned get their way, 24 MILLION people wouldn't be able to play it. Seriously, do you think pulling it from Target AFTER release will do ANYTHING?! Amazon says hi... Could you imagine if this actually affected the release of the game entirely? I absolutely love Rockstars attitude about it!
The entire quote is amazing... Very well said
You strange people.. Whoever hasn't bought it ;)
Exactly, some people are offended and want to prevent millions of people to enjoy the game?
Plot twist. They didn't want it off store shelves because of the violence. They wanted it off shelves because there are no heists
Sadly, like religion, far too many people want to force their ideologies on everyone else.
that guy's got a pair!
I totally agree.
I wish I didn't waste my money.sold it for 20 bucks
"Please ban Gta V because of the violence it showcases towards women...but feel free to continue to sell movies, books, religious text, and TV shows. Also we don't care about all the men you kill in the game, THEY HAVE STRIPPERS AND PROSTITUTES!" Logic escapes these people. Don't like something, don't buy it.
Not to mention you can perform these "acts of violence" towards anyone in the game INCLUDING TRANSVESTITES FFS! Men, women, manwomen, dogs, cats, sharks, why the hell do you think there aren't any kids in GTA?! Hell, if there were no women in GTA, this stupid ass group would be up R*'s ass about equal rights.
I don't like it but I'll buy it, what you gonna do about it CEO ?
LMAO! Ohh we got a bad ass over here!
Oh my God. Its so simple.
"But if you really like it, buy it again!"
The truth hasss been spoken!!!
Only hobos shop at kmart and target anyway. Also, goes to show how stupid soccer mums are. The game has been out for well over a year. Only now they catch on to it? derp I'm just waiting for steam to activate that pre-order button and I'm set!
