Yesterday when news broke that Manhunt 2 had received a preliminary rating of Adults Only from Take-Two, Kotaku shot a quick email off to Nintendo seeking comment on the issue.
Today they've confirmed that if the game's final rating is Adults Only it won't be showing up on the Wii... or any of Nintendo's systems.
Adults Only Manhunt 2, Homeless?
Just an hour after Nintendo of America reminded Kotaku that they don't allow Adults Only rated games to come to their systems, Sony Computer Entertainment of America has confirmed that the same is true for them.
For questions or comment regarding the rating of Manhunt 2, please contact the publisher, Rockstar. Currently it's SCE's policy not to allow the playback of AO rated content on our systems.
So Rockstar only has three choices now: They can either kill the game, rework it to try for a lower rating or submit an appeal to the ESRB's board and argue that the game doesn't deserve such a high, 18-or-older rating.
