Zelnick: We’re pleased with Video Appeals decision

Take 2 chairman Strauss Zelnick has said that he is pleased with the Video Appeals Committee’s decision to back the publisher in its appeal against the BBFC’s decision to ban controversial PS2, PSP and Wii title Manhunt 2 from sale in the UK.

"We are committed to making great interactive entertainment, while also marketing our products responsibly and supporting an effective rating system,” Zelnick stated.

We are pleased that the decision of the VAC has recognized that Manhunt 2 is well within the bounds established by other 18+ rated entertainment."

The Video Appeals Committee announced just a few moments ago that it voted by a margin of four to three in Rockstar’s favour in its appeal against the BBFC’s ban. The ratings body has said that it is currently considering its options.
