Hot Coffee Cools Off

Finally, Hot Coffee is cooling off. Take-Two has released a statement saying that the Federal Trade Commission has concluded their investigation into the whole "hidden adult content" in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas fiasco.

From the statement:

"All outstanding matters pending before the FTC have been settled and no penalties or fines have been assessed. Among other things, the Consent Order provides that the Company shall not misrepresent a video game's ratings or content descriptors and that the Company shall implement a system to ensure that all game content is reviewed in connection with submissions to ratings authorities."

"We are extremely pleased that the FTC has concluded its very thorough investigation, and that the matter has been resolved," commented Take-Two President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Eibeler. "We recognize the importance of maintaining public confidence in the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rating system and helping the ESRB educate parents and consumers about the rating system. We look forward to putting this behind us and focusing on what we do best - creating video games."

Personally I can't believe how blown out of proportion this whole story got. Thankfully it's all over and we don't have to talk about it anymore.
