Rockstar finally appeals BBFC's Manhunt ban

Manhunt 2 was banned in the UK on the 19th of June by the BBFC. Rockstar has today applied to the Video Appeals Committee to get this ban over turned.

Will this lead to the game being allowed on the shelves in the UK?


Rockstar confirms Manhunt appeals

A statement from the company reads:
"Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. confirmed today that Rockstar Games has appealed the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) decision that prohibited the release of any version of Manhunt 2 in Britain."

The story is too old to be commented.

The only reason I'm holding onto my PS2 is because I have hope that Manhunt 2 will, someday, actually be released.

cause that's the only way I see the ban being overturned.

It's not as though they can (like so many other games in the past) go back and take some sh!t out for the M rating.
The brutal violence IS the core of the ManHunt series.
