San Andreas Advertisements Banned

9 posts in this topic

San Andreas advertisments have been banned in the UK after eight parents complained about the commercial.

The parents said that they were concerned about the commercial airing because not only was it aired at a time when children are still watching TV, but the parents reported that it was also the use of drugs, intense violence, and the spraying of graffiti that made the commercial too adult-like for children.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) started an investigation on the issue, and on Wednesday, the ASA announced that the advertisments will be banned from UK television because they were concerned about the commercial's "Threatening Atmosphere".

The ad is now only allowed to be aired after the 'watershed', which is 9 PM, this way the parents are the only ones to blame if they let their children see the advertisement.

Rockstar Games said that their purpose of the commercial was not towards the children, rather towards the adults. (Half of the audience is not required the play the game, anyway.)

Man, advertising is business. It draws more customers. Man, that sucks for Rockstar. I'm serious, Rockstar probably takes more shit than any other Video Game producer.
