    I doubt it, unless they're giving away free copies or something.

    I'm not really affected by this, seeing as I don't play games like MadWorld, but I do think that it's pretty dumb to call this publicity stunt "sickening". Stuff like this makes me wonder how GTA:CTW will handle the media in the future. I mean, I can already picture some article that'll blame it for promoting drug dealing, even though it's nothing like in real life :\ .

    The second I read the title I knew they'd throw in that "Wii is for family's! You can't make an adult game for it!" Bull Shit. [​IMG]

    It's the Sun.
    Nobody with an ounce of intelligence in the UK takes that Tabloid newspaper seriously.
    Seriously, open one up, third page, BAM, naked chick.

    Can't say I approve of this kind of campaigns, but specially The Sun can't tell me what's a "sickening publicity stunt"... I mean, they are the cream of the crop when it comes to sensationalism and disgusting journalism.

    Truer words were never spoken... you've hit the nail on the head, the SUN is the cream of the SCUM when it comes to sensationalism (with the Daily Mail not far behind) and disgusting journalism.
