It's been a rough couple of days for Rockstar's Manhunt 2. Yesterday it was banned from the UK, now in the US it's been given an Adults Only (AO) rating by the ESRB. Take 2 disagree with the decision and feel it should be rated M instead.
"Manhunt 2 was created for mature audiences and we strongly believe it should receive an M (Mature) rating, aligning it with similar content created in other forms of media. We are exploring our options with regard to the rating of Manhunt 2".
The AO rating is bad news from the publisher's point of view. While Manhunt 2 would still be available to the public, sales could be dramatically affected since major retailers like Wal-Mart won't stock adult games.
