Comment: Purchasing the game directly from Rockstar? (Score 1) 128

I understand how Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo do not allow AO games on their consoles, or that stores such as EB et al do not sell these type of games either. But does this mean that the consoles are hard coded in some way that they check the rating for a game before it plays? Does this mean that I were somehow able to get a copy of the game (I'm pretty sure it was torrented a few weeks ago...) I could throw it into my console and play? I can't recall which is the game company and which the publisher, Take Two and Rockstar, but why can't the publisher sell the game directly minus the middle man?

So I guess my question is, why can't they get the AO rating and sell the game via the intarwebs (the credit card could also be a way of checking for age authentication) to those interested in owning the game sans being barred from playing it if the consoles are locked against those types of games?
