Rockstar have now stopped making the current version of the game and are working on making the game more secure (from game 'hackers').
Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO) announced today that the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has changed the rating of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on all platforms from "Mature 17+" (M) to "Adults Only 18+" (AO) because of the so-called "hot coffee mod," an unauthorized third party modification that alters the retail version of the game. Take-Two cooperated fully with the ESRB's investigation.
Rockstar are going to be releasing a patch shortly to render the Hot Coffee useless.
Rockstar Games has ceased manufacturing of the current version of the title and will begin working on a version of the game with enhanced security to prevent the "hot coffee" modifications. This version will retain the original ESRB M-rating and is expected to be available during the Company's fourth fiscal quarter. Rockstar Games will be providing AO labels for retailers who wish to continue to sell the current version of the title.
Hey, fool, It's not happening overnight, although theyve stopped production it doesn't mean game retailers can't still sell the M rated copies they still have in stock. Go out and get it quick!

This better not affect gta for ps3.
Yeah in England it's pretty easy to go into any shop and buy a game you aren't supposed to be allowed. I've done it before.
Hell, I bought Carmageddon 2, one of the goriest and controversial games of its time when I was about 11, 7 years underage. That was at EB by the way.
I don't care because im 18 anyway most shops sell the games to under 18 anyway
