Check out the BBC's latest piece about the ESRB/Hot Coffee fiasco, written by our very own illspirit.
|"It's also worth mentioning that nearly everyone in the GTA3/Vice City/San Andreas mod scene have purchased each title twice.|
Each of those three games was released in the month of October for the PlayStation 2, with the PC version following in May or June of the year after. Most of us ran out to buy the console versions to play the games as soon as they came out, and later bought them again for PC just for the mods.
So for Rockstar, the ESRB, or the US Congress to prevent us from modding games would have a devastating impact on sales."
