WII Manhunt 2 Banned In UK

The ELSPA (Entertainment & Leisure Software Publishers Association) has put a ban on Manhunt 2, which means no Wii version for the UK.

"A decision from the BBFC such as this demonstrates that we have a games ratings system in the UK that is effective. It shows it works and works well. Any decision the BBFC takes, it takes on the basis of its remit to rate on screen entertainment.

"The games industry is a creative phenomenon that produces all kinds of games across all kinds of genres that appeal to all kinds of people across the country, young and old, male and female. The important thing to know is that all games are rated according to age suitability, with over 70 per cent of games being available to all ages over three years."

  • Seriously though, who didnt see it coming after that kid died and the person who did it had his mum blame it on the game. Just to say, it has also been banned in Ireland as well.

  • Well, the Netherlands are thinking about a ban on the game too now.

  • Banning games, literature, movies, etc... Is fascist.

  • Sucks to be italian too: our "Minister for telecommunications" (LOL, what an useless ministery), Paolo Gentiloni, a man of the left wing of Parlament (but obviously a fascist in his thoughts) has banned Manhunt II and asked for an european interrogation about banning other violent games.
