BBFC comment on Manhunt 2 ban

The BBFC has refused to grant classification to Manhunt 2 in the UK, effectively banning it from sale in the United Kingdom. Wii UK spoke to the BBFC today.

The story is too old to be commented.

Controversy and ban = game success.

Ironically, I think the BBFC has just single-handedly catapulted the demand for, and popularity of this game.

This is interesting. I wonder what this says for all the other people in all the other countries that are allowing this game to "involve a range of unjustifiable harm risks, to both adults and minors."

sigh*

True.

Sales will indeed be hampered by the omission of the UK market, but sales may very well skyrocket in any other market where the game is not banned specifically as a result (despite - and mostly due to - it's immoral reputation.)

Speaking at least for myself, this announcement has definitely gotten me curious to see what all the fuss is about. I'm now actually considering giving it a go, whereas I would've otherwise pretty much ignored the game.

Britain is becoming Germany (in sense of censorship) =)

Don't mention the war.
