ZOMG, Hillary Clinton enjoys "Hot Coffee"? GTA:SA Brew-haha increases

From Gamespot:

Quote:
Hillary Clinton to take on Rockstar over Hot Coffee

Washington, DC press conference Thursday will see the New York Senator call for a Federal Trade Commission inquiry into the San Andreas mod.
Tomorrow in the country's capital, Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will call on the Federal Trade Commission to launch an inquiry into the "Hot Coffee" mod, sources have told GameSpot.


Clinton, a vociferous critic of violence in the media, will be joined by David Walsh, president and founder of the National Institute on Media and the Family; Mary Bissell, fellow at the New America Foundation; and Kiersten Stewart, director of public policy for the Family Violence Prevention Fund.

Clinton is expected to call on the FTC to determine who is responsible for the Hot Coffee mod, a modification that unlocks sexually explicit minigames in Rockstar's recently published PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

While the game is rated M, and therefore not readily sold to those below the age of 17, the mod is easily available online.

A statement distributed by the Senator's office this afternoon sets the scene, stating that "following recent reports revealing that the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has graphic pornographic content which may be unlocked by following instructions on the Internet, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will hold a press conference to discuss legislative solutions to keep inappropriate video game content out of the hands of young people." The statement makes no mention of asking the FTC to step in, but sources tell GameSpot that this request will be the centerpiece of the Senator's plea tomorrow.

Although there are far more outspoken politicians when it comes to regulating game content inappropriate for children, this is not the first time Clinton has looked into the issue. On her official Web site, Clinton lists "fighting the culture of sex and violence in the media" as part of her platform, and in March, she joined with Senators Joe Lieberman (D-CT), Sam Brownback (R-KS), and Rick Santorum (R-PA) to cosponsor legislation seeking $90 million over five years for research into how viewing different types of media (television, video games, and the Internet in particular) affects children's development.

Clinton plans on holding the press event at 10am in Room 485 of the Russell Senate Office Building.
I'm just waiting for Lieberman to do the chicken dance. My opinion is, if its rated M, dont freaking sell that **** to children. But it seems videogames have always had more leniency on that area than, say porn flicks or splatterfests.

That would sell at least 4.5 million copies.

Are you sad because you know the GTA series have been the best games this generation, or because you know nobody plays Metroid games.

As for Clinton. Good for her. Let her create a larger media hooplah. In the end Rockstar will be let off the hook, and all she would've accomplished was wasting time, money, and giving GTA more publicity.

Funny how people still think lbierals are the ones who protect their civil rights.


Doesn't that hag have anything better to do? Did guantanamo turn out empty after democrats who inspected it found no abuses?

Nah. The bitch just needs a dildo since her husband isn't giving her any and is instead choosing fat-ass interns.

I don't think Rockstar is in any hook.

And GTAs have not been the best games this generation.

They don't have to be the best. They're big-sellers and are easy targets by over-zealous politicians who tend to forget about that little thing called "constitutional rights."

Politicians are the biggest scene whores around. They're doing this for attention, and nothing more.
