Haha, there's nothing to worry about, gtaiv punk. You'll be playing GTA IV in around 40 days from now ;)

@SLACK, yeah I'm a bit surprised not to see gore on there either. Sure blowing off heads with a sniper was unrealistic, but you would at least expect more realistic gore, ya know?

partial nudity meaning the most we'll see is a pair of cheeks.

Rockstar why do you give us strip joints but no actual nudity?

I also notice no mention of gore (worrying).

And this game will have comedy clubs but no mention of crude humor.

I remember San Andreas having the gore comment in the ESRB Rating, but there was barely any gore, if any, in that game, mostly just blood.

The rating will be "M", but that doesn't mean its contents labels aren't subject to change.

good thing too :: If GTA IV was another ESRB rating, it will not be the same old gta!
