US retailer pulls Manhunt 2 from shelves

It has been confirmed that US entertainment retailer Target has removed the PSP version of Rockstar’s Manhunt 2 from its North American stores following the news that it can be hacked to reveal the content that was cut to appease ratings body the ESRB.

Following widespread internet rumours, GameSpot got the official word from a Target spokesperson, who stated: "Target strives to provide merchandise that will appeal to a wide variety of guests. We also want guests to be comfortable with the purchasing decisions they make at Target.

All video games and computer software sold at Target currently carry ratings by the ESRB, from early childhood through mature audiences. While Manhunt 2 was given a Mature rating by the ERSB, 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."

Manhunt 2 remains banned in the UK following a failed BBFC appeal.
