It's been a while since we've posted anything about GTA San Andreas, but here we go: the New York Times is reporting that the lawyers who sued Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take Two Interactive, for the insertion of a hidden sex scene known as Hot Coffee into the game, are "shocked" by the small number of people who have been offended by it. Apparently, of the 21.5 million units of the game that have been sold (as of March 26th, 2008), just 2,676 led to a complaint, which equates to 0.012% of the total sales. Unfortunately for them, the system doesn't work on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis, so the legal costs are still $1.3 million.

Nice find. Not suprised tbh, the kind of people that would know about Hot Coffee would be the kind of people who couldn't care less.

It was all blown completely way out of proportion and everyone who had played the game knew that anyway. No one could have been offended by a really crap sex mini-game, in a game full of drugs, prostitutes, racism and murder. The stupid parents who buy the game for their under age children and then complain about it need to be shot in the face.

I didn't care that it was in it, and I still don't!

All the mum's that got upset should have bought the game for their ten year old son's anyway. And on top of that, it's not like you could easily access the mini game on the PS2 or 360, and a kid wouldn't know about modding the game, or even care for that matter! All the people who access the sex scene WANTED to, it's not like the stumbled on it. And watching pixel sex is worse than picking hookers up, killing them, murdering innocent people and buying drugs? But oh no, it's OK for little Jimmy to do all that stuff (breaking the law), but is ssoooo bad he watches a sex scene (sex is legal and fun), wtf! Watching pixel porn doesn't make you go on a shooting spree in a high school (not that playing violent video games does)!

Mum's who buy their little kids games mean for 15+ or 17+ ages and up should be shooting themselves for buying the damn game to start with! No, "Oh, I bought this 17+ game for my 13 year old boy and now I found out that you can watch pixel sex, this game is NOT for kids and kids should see sex in the game."! ARGHH WTF!

It's funny that it was actually called Hot Coffee because it reminds of another stupid lawsuit that involved real hot coffee. I'm sure the whole thing stemmed from some kid who lied to his mom about the game and then got caught during that.

That was totally different if its the one I'm thinking of. This one old woman burned herself with some coffee from McDonalds, sued them and....*drum roll*

WON $2 MILLION!!!! Or 3...I forget the exact amount.

There was also a black woman in New York City that tried to sue McDonalds because it made her daughter fat. That was all her daughter was eating...period. Case got tossed out of court.

I'll see if there are newspaper articles floating around somewhere.

everyone is blaming the parents. my parents buy me GTA. im only 15 at present. i was playing IV and my mum watched me steal a guys car, head-butt him and then run over everyone insight. she just laffed. i never found hot coffee because i hated the GFs and just killed them. its only a joke. but thanks to politicains all jokes do is offend people. fuck polictical correctness and Fuck beaurocrats. these fucking pen-pushers are ruining the world with their fucking censorship and lack of commonsense.

i heard a woman in USA thot that with cruise control and satnav the car would drive itself she sued the car manufacturer and won her claim. woman driver or dumb american, you decide (a little bit of polictical INcorrectness, sorry if i offended anyone.................NOT).

Well said. That is what annoys me is when parents buy these games for their kids and then they moan and groan at the Press where they are trying to get these games banned where they say they give kids bad ideas. Why do they buy these games for their kids in the first place? In England this has happened many times and the front, back and side of the cases and on the disc they clearly state the eighteen certificate to say the games are for adults only with a message saying the games contain violence, sex and bad language and the parents are too thick to know all this and they wonder why their kids have an altered mind after playing the games. I remember reading in another GTA forum where a man lets his nine-year-old son play it and he said his son shoots women dead and shoots them up the pussy to see blood coming out as if they are having a period. What the hell kind of activity is that for a child? That father should be locked in jail for letting that child play that game and for getting up to things like that. What else does he let him do, watch horror films and porn? For crying out loud it makes me sick to my stomach.
