Manhunt 2 News | Ben Feder Comments on Manhunt 2 Controversy

<p><a href="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/take-twos-ben-feder-interview" target="_blank">Eurogamer</a>
have published an interview with the CEO of Take-Two Interactive, Ben Feder,
they tackle such subject as console exclusivity, Agent and what the company
learned from releasing Manhunt 2.</p>
<blockquote>
<p><strong>Eurogamer: What lessons have you learned from the Manhunt 2 controversy?
Has it made you more cautious about publishing games with violent content?</strong></p>
<p>Ben Feder: Absolutely not. We firmly believe that games are art. A), we have
the right to produce art. B), the consumer should have the right to make their
own choices, providing the labelling on the package is clear about the content
of the game. </p>
<p>Apart from that, I don't think it's the role of governments to determine
what you or any of your readers can, or should, buy. They should be able to
make their own choices. Government has no role in that at all. </p>
<p>We encourage our developers to be as expressive as they want to be in their
games. Our position has not changed one bit with respect to how we develop
games and how we market games and what role we think government should have.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Great to see they still stand by Manhunt 2. Now where are the 360, PC and PS3 versions?</p>
<p>For those interested, the first digital screenshots of Max Payne 3 have been
added to the <a href="http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayne3/index2.php" target="_blank">official

<p><a href="http://ir.take2games.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=390972" target="_blank">Rockstar
has announced</a> that it will be bringing Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
to the PlayStation Portable this fall. As before the game is being developed
by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with Rockstar North. The game will be available
at retail on UMD disk and as a digital download for the PSP Go!.</p>
<p>Press release</p>
<blockquote>
<p>New York, NY &#8211; June 22, 2009 &#8211; Rockstar Games, the world-renowned
publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is
pleased to announce that one of the highest-rated handheld games of all time,
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, will be making its way to the PSP&reg; (PlayStation&reg;Portable)
handheld entertainment system. Developed by the award-winning studio Rockstar
Leeds, in conjunction with series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto:
Chinatown Wars will be available at retail on UMD&reg; and digitally from
the PlayStation&reg;Network in North America and Europe this fall.</p>
<p>&quot;We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience
to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSP&reg;go,&quot;
said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. &quot;Rockstar Leeds has shown
incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and
innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced,
and incredibly addictive entry into the series.&quot;</p>
<p>&quot;Rockstar's work with the GTA series has been an enormous part of the
success of PlayStation platforms,&quot; said Jack Tretton, President and CEO
of Sony Computer Entertainment America. &quot;We're excited to welcome the
critically acclaimed Chinatown Wars to the outstanding line-up of great games
headed to the PSP platform this fall.&quot; </p>
<p>Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars follows the story of Huang Lee, a young
Triad who travels to Liberty City after the mysterious death of his father.
Within the game, players will navigate their way through the streets as they
uncover the truth behind an epic tale of crime and corruption within the Triad
crime syndicate, delivering the unprecedented amount of depth that has become
a true trademark of the franchise. Specifically built for the PSP platform
with upscaled widescreen graphics, enhanced lighting and animation; and including
all-new story missions; this version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will
take full advantage of the power of the PSP system.</p>

</blockquote>
<p>This is without a doubt good news for PlayStation Portable owners, however,
I do wonder how it will translate onto the PSP, all things considered much of
what made Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars such a compelling experience on the
Nintendo DS was due to the unique capabilities of that system.</p>
