2007 Wacko Jacko Suing Take-Two
GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 01:53 PM MDT | By Kodo
The infamous Jack Thompson is going through with his threats when he will officially file lawsuit against Take-Two next week. Jack plans to stop the sale of future titles like Manhunt 2 and GTA IV to kids under 17.
The lawsuit comes off as premature and, to be blunt, silly. The ESRB has not yet rated either game, and although they may likely be rated "M For Mature", M-Rated games are typically only sold to ages 17+ or with parental consent anyway. Notwithstanding, the fact remains that nobody knows what GTA IV contains, so how could a lawsuit ban its content? Jack Thomspon even claims that Manhunt 2 is a "castration simulator." I am sure that anybody that knows what castration means does not require a simulator to perform it.
With the upcoming antipated Take-Two takeover of the board during the company's annual shareholder meeting on March 23, Thompson believes his lawsuit will be a threat to the "new" owners and that selling GTA IV and Manhunt 2 will be detrimental to their future sales. This is despite the fact that Take-Two shares have started going up, a sign that investors have an opposing view of Take-Two's future.
