Target refuses to stock Manhunt 2

By on
Despite the ESRB’s decision to stand by the Mature rating awarded to Manhunt 2, big-box retailer Target has decided to pull all copies of the controversial game from its shelves after news emerged that hackers had found a way for gamers to view the filtered content on the PSP version of the game.

“While ‘Manhunt 2’ was given a ‘Mature’ rating by the ESRB, we received additional information that players can potentially view previously filtered content by altering the game code. As a result, we have decided not to carry the game,” said Target in a statement.
Meanwhile, there are probably dozens of movies you could buy at Target that are every bit as gory as Manhunt 2. I don’t own the game and have no plans on buying it, but there seems to be a double standard at play here. It seems that Target is just running away from the controversy.
