Rumour | Manhunt 2 PSM Update
<p> Various members on our message board have been discussing the fact that Manhunt
2 maybe coming out for the Playstation 2. After further searching around various
message boards i have been able to confirm that Manhunt 2 is scheduled to come
out on the Playstation 3. </p>
<p>This was confirmed by various people, who said they had saw this in the December
issue of US publication PSM's future releases calender for 2006 and 2007 also
mentioned was the fact the game was barely in development. We don't know what
to make of this news but until we or someone else get conformation from Rockstar,
again you should also take comments as pure speculation and nothing more.</p>

Site News & Updates | Site Updates
<p> A lot of updates have been taken place on the site recently and I just thought
I would summarise it all for you. If you check out the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/manhunt/story.php">Story</a>
page you can see that it has been redone, it still isn&#8217;t finalised but
it is certainly coming along. The <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/manhunt/trivia.php">Trivia</a>
page has once again been updated with some new information for you to check
out. The <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/manhunt/beta.php">Beta</a> section
now includes some new interesting findings about the pre release version of
the game.</p>

<p> The <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/manhunt/mediacoverage.php">Media
Coverage</a> page now contains over 65 articles of all natures for you to check
out, while you are at it you may wish too look in the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/gallery/">Gallery</a>
for some of the new scans and such. And the Misc Section was renamed to the
more appropriate <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/features/">Features</a>;
here you can find the first 4 features that I have done, if you are a regular
of the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/forums/">Forum</a> then you no
doubt have been waiting some time for these.</p>
<p>And the last but certainly not least update is the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/manhunt/dialogue.php">Dialogue</a>
page; I have gone ahead and redesigned the page so that it loads quicker for
those of you with a slower connection. Currently we have re ripped the dialogue
from the game and are looking for people to help us type up the missing pieces,
if you are interested then sign up at the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/forums/">message
board</a> and get in <a href="http://www.manhuntuncut.com/staff.htm">contact</a>
with either me or <a href="mailto:lazlow@projectmanhunt.com">Lazlow</a>.</p>

<p>If after all that you are still looking for something to occupy your time with
then <a href="http://www.ign.com/" target="_blank">IGN</a> has an interesting interview up about
Controlling Videogame Sex and Violence that you can view <a href="http://ps2.ign.com/articles/686/686920p1.html" target="_blank">here</a>.<br>

Manhunt News | Take-Two Buyout Rumours
<p> The <a href="http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/nypost/981716051.html?did=981716051&FMT=ABS&FMTS=FT&date=Feb%2B5%2C%2B2006&author=Tim%2BArango&pub=New%2BYork%2BPost&desc=BONO%2BEYES%2BTAKE-TWO%2B-%2BROCKER%27S%2BFIRM%2BINTERESTED%2BIN%2B%27GRAND%2BTHEFT%2BAUTO%27%2BMAKER" target="_blank">New
York Post</a> has reported that Take-Two is having serious discussions with
various buyout firms and as fate would have it Elevation is in the leading.
<a href="http://ps3.ign.com/articles/685/685835p1.html" target="_blank">IGN</a> has quoted the
following reasons why this may be a better move for Take-Two:</p>

<blockquote>
<p>- multiple shareholder class action lawsuits over its handling of the &quot;Hot
Coffee Affair&quot; and its resulting negative financial impact on the company's
earnings and stock price </p>
<p>- a lawsuit filed by the city of Los Angeles for the sale of Grand Theft
Auto: San Andreas related to the &quot;Hot Coffee&quot; fiasco</p>
<p>- the fallout over the resignation of the chairman of the company's audit
committee due to her &quot;concerns&quot; about the company's accounting and
governance issues involving its financial internal controls</p>

<p>- a potential Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation related
to the company's accounting practices</p>
<p>- an Alabama lawsuit that alleges a teenager went on a killing spree due
to the influence of the Grand Theft Auto series</p>
<p>- the company is burning through cash at a significant rate</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Long story cut short, they believe Take-Two is more valuable when broken up
into its various studios rather than being a single entity as such this would
be a valuable move.</p>
<p>Bono of U2 fame has investment in Elevation Partners as does several former
EA executives; the company also currently holds shares in Pandemic Studios and
Bioware so the game industry is nothing new to Elevation. The deal is said to
be worth more than $1 billion dollars.</p>

Rockstar News | Take 2 Annual Report
<p> Take-Two have recently released their annual report alongside an overview
of things that may come. Here is an excerpt from the report regarding the sale
of GTA games.</p>
<blockquote>
<p>Additionally, retailers may decline to sell interactive entertainment software
containing graphic violence or sexually explicit material that they deem inappropriate
for their businesses. Many of our Rockstar titles have received an M rating.
If retailers decline to sell our M rated products or if our M rated products
are re-rated AO, we might be required to significantly change or discontinue
particular titles, which in the case of our best selling Grand Theft Auto
titles could seriously hurt our business.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>While this report mentions Grand Theft Auto in particular, Manhunt also falls
under this category. So what does it mean in the long run? Does this mean that
Manhunt will be discontinued? Unlikely, however it may suggest that further
titles released by Take-Two (including all Rockstar games) could be more heavily
regulated. It is also worth noting that other territories use different rating
systems such as in the UK, they follow the <a href="http://www.bbfc.co.uk/" target="_blank">BBFC</a>
rating system and as such it is possible that if cuts where to be made to a
game then an alternate version of the game could be released outside of the
US. </p>

Rockstar News | Rockstar Announcement
<p> Today Rockstar has announced the release of Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix
for March of this year. Could this be the Rockstar sequel hinted at back in
January. It is more complicated than that however, the game is more alike a
special edition than a sequel and is part of the PS2 Greatest Hits program and
the Xbox&reg; Platinum Hits collection so it is not a true sequel as such but
it was up until now, unannounced. Watch this space for further news. </p>
