Less than 24 hours after the release of Manhunt 2
, you can already play the full and uncensored version
thanks to some enterprising hackers. The news for Rockstar is just ... bad: "The game has been censored in the US in order for it to receive an M rating - and therefore a release - rather than the original AO rating it was given by the ESRB. The illegal exploit of the original PSP code indicates that the scenes that were cut in order to secure an M rating were not removed from the full game, rather disabled, much like the Hot Coffee mini-games in Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."
This is also exactly what prompted the re-rating of Oblivion
and Halo 2 for the PC
. We should expect to see an ESRB response to this very soon, then.
