death metal black metal writes "Sometime this year you might be putting a disc labeled Manhunt 2 into your Wii or PlayStation 2, but it won't be the game the creators originally intended.

The developer, Rockstar Games, was forced to slam on the brakes when the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, or ESRB, gave Manhunt 2 a rating of Adults Only, or AO.

Neither Sony nor Nintendo allow AO-rated titles to be released on their hardware, and most major retailers refuse to stock the games. As a result, creators whose games get an adult rating usually trim back the content or decline to release the product.
