ICE COFFEE

Finally, after what seems like an eon, the 'Hot Coffee Scandal' from San Andreas has finally come to a close. This closure leaves Take2 ultimately pleased. They were no fines given to Take 2 whatsoever resulting from the scandal. They did however, have to reach an agreement with the The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), it says; that they cannot misrepresent a games content with the rating and they must submit their future games to be reviewed before the ESRB rates them. They were also issued a severe warning. FTC told them that if they were to violate this agreement they would recieve a $11,000 fine per violation. The courts would then decide on how the fine would occur. If the judge deemed necessary they could be fined $11,000 for each copy of the game sold!

But lets assume Take2 won't be anymore trouble like this for a long time.

Crikey. That's what you call a let off! crazy.gif

Though let's be honest, it's not like the mod was mind altering or anything.
