Nintendo, Sony refuse adults-only games

Posted on Friday, June 22 2007 @ 04:02:03 CEST by

Sony and Nintendo say they won't approve adults only rated games for their game consoles. We're not talking about porn games but about games like Manhunt 2. DailyTech writes:
Although AO-rated games are legally sellable in North America, the approval processes of Nintendo and Sony do not allow such games to appear on its systems. Manhunt 2 is under development for the Wii, PlayStation 2 and PSP, though the game would not be approved for release by Sony or Nintendo.

“Games made for Nintendo systems enjoy a broad variety of styles, genres and ratings. These are some of the reasons our Wii and Nintendo DS systems appeal to such a broad range of people,” read a Nintendo statement to the press. “But as with books, television and movies, different content is meant for different audiences. That's why the ESRB provides ratings to help consumers understand the content of a game before they purchase it. As stated on Nintendo.com, Nintendo does not allow any AO-rated content on its systems.”

Sony Computer Entertainment of America responded to inquiries with a similar response, saying, “Currently it's SCE's policy not to allow the playback of AO rated content on our systems.”

Of the 23 games ever to be given an AO rating by the ESRB, only one has ever appeared on a home console. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, also from Rockstar Games, had its M for mature rating changed to AO following the sexually explicit “Hot Coffee” incident.
