GameFly, Blockbuster won't carry Manhunt 2 with AO rating

Joystiq spoke with game rental service GameFly and can report that Manhunt 2, now with an AO rating, will not be carried by the company. A GameFly spokesperson said, "GameFly as a general policy does not carry AO rated titles." When asked if they have ever made an exception to the "general policy," the representive said, "Not that I know of, there's been no exceptions."

They also contacted Blockbuster corporate and they said, "Blockbuster does not carry adult or NC-17 movies, or AO rated games."

Wii, PS2, PSP. Ya Blockbuster really got MS good that time, You baboon.

Anyways, This is making me think twice about keeping my Gamefly subscription. You have to be 18 for the service. Why deny me a right to rent a game?

Movie Gallery can sell it since they do sell and rent adult titles.

I thought I recognized you from somewhere, You're that guy with the paper bag in your hands walking out of there. LOL

I feel bad for Rockstar, they will probably try and steer clear from Wii now, because it actually makes you do the action of killing someone in the game whereas a conventional pad you just press a button. I don't think the sensors will like that.

Hopefully they don't ban GTA 4, a lot of people here (UK) would go crazy if that happened

I really hope that if they're cutting the game to get an M, they release an uncut AO version for select retailers.
