    Nintendo bans Manhunt 2 for Wii

    The whole Manhunt debarcle still rumbles on for a third day as it has been announced that Nintendo and Sony are both refusing to allow Manhunt 2 to be released for there consoles.

    The decision follows the ESRB ruling that Manhunt 2 would receive a AO (Adult Only) rating in America which already meant that the title would be stocked in limited locations.

    However Nintendo and Sony have corporate policies in place which restrict AO titles appearing on consoles and therefore a release in the US is now unlikely altogether.

    The game is now banned from the USA, UK and Ireland and no doubt the rest of Europe will follow suit in due course before the due release on July 10th. It leaves no option but for the game to be scrapped or re-worked. We'll keep you informed of any decisions!

    Have Nintendo and Sony actually announced they will not allow manhunt on their console? Is there a link?
    Or is this speculation due to the AO clause in Sony/Nintendo's corporate policy?

    Probably speculation due to that said clause, which I doubt exceptions would be made...

    I thought Nintendo said if the FINAL rating was A0 they wouldn't let it out on Wii. Rockstar still has time to make changes necessary to drop it down to a M rating.

    And I'm sure Rockstar is heavily considering doing just that, because I mean it would be the smart thing to do given the fact this is such a high profile game and while not the most anticipated game of the year, there are still alot of people waiting to play. Alot of people equals alot of money so Rockstar will more than likely do whatever it takes to get it to the largest audience possible.

    No it is Nintendo policy. I think it says so in one of the manuals.

    WOW! I'm kinda pissed about this if it ends up being true. I love my Wii, but they need to start making games that target an older audience. There is only so much you can play all these little "kiddy" games. I would love to see this game come out so that future titles with same type content could be released on this console and same goes for the PS3. (Though the PS3 already targets older audiences)

    All of you see whats going on right? Rockstar has a history of this.

    Hint - the best advertising is free advertising.

    I think some of you are falling for it hook line and sinker.
