The story of the HotCoffee mod, which allows access to some erotic scenes which allegedly exist in GTA San Andreas, has all the chances of becoming an extremely serious accusation against Rockstar.
ESRB has already announced that it will start a complete investigation, intended to find out whether the erotic scenes from the game were included by Rockstar or are the result of changes
made by the mod.
ESRB itself might be accused of not properly rating GTA San Andreas. Since 1994, ESRB, an association founded by Entertainment Software Association, has been handling the rating of games according to their content.
The accusations against ESRB reside in the fact that the association should have rated GTA San Andreas as AO (Adults Only). But in this situation, game distributors avoid commercializing such titles.
On the other hand, Rockstar told the media that they will cooperate with ESRB in all aspects related to the investigation and that they are convinced that GTA San Andreas will keep its original rating.
A company spokesperson told GameSpot News that Rockstar cannot be held responsible for the erotic content present in the game after the HotCoffee mod is activated. Initially, the company had refused to comment on the HotCoffee mod, because it has never got involved on the modders' activity.
