Oh and don't forget: think of the children. You know, the same ones who aren't even supposed to be able to obtain copies of the game in the first place but their dimwit parents buy them anyway because it's cheaper than hiring a baby sitter? Yeah, those parents.
Here's an actual picture of the "controversial" advertisements, courtesy of Joystiq.com As you can clearly see, it shows a nihilistic orgy of crime and death.
Take-Two has sued the Chicago Transit Authority for violating its free speech and contractual rights after the authority pulled ads for Grand Theft Auto IV on the transit system without explanation. Reuters reports that Take-Two accuses the CTA of violating the contract for the $300,000 ad campaign that involved running GTA IV ads around the transit system for six weeks between April and June.
The suit seeks an order for the CTA to run the ads, as well as at least $300,000 in damages.
Good for Take Two.
