Yea I'm bummed about that. At least I have a rewards coupon at Best Buy so I get something out of the deal.


did you play the pcversion and the wii version. if you did you would know they cut out some of the videos and some of the animations. The ps2 version was out in u.s before other countrys cried about the game in which is why the wii version was cut down compared to the pcversion and nintendo ask rockstar to give them the cut down version. the bad version was never banned in u.s till it launched on the wii

The game was censored on all consoles in order to get an M rating rather than A/O. It had nothing to do with Nintendo.

Development and censorship

Manhunt 2 entered development in 2004 at Rockstar Games' Vienna studio with a PSP port entering development shortly after at Rockstar Games' Leeds studio.[11] In 2006, Rockstar Vienna was closed by Rockstar and main development of the game was handed to the London studio. A little while later, Rockstar Games' Toronto studio was tasked with developing a Nintendo Wii version.
On June 19, 2007, the game received an ESRB rating of Adults Only, effectively blocking the game from being sold in the US, with the UK ratings board BBFC preventing it from being sold. As a result, Rockstar was forced to censor the game in order to get a Mature rating. In August 2007, Rockstar submitted a censored version of the game to the ESRB and received a Mature rating allowing the game to be sold in the US. This modified version was again rejected by the BBFC;[12] Rockstar won its appeal against this rejection on December 10, 2007,[13] but the BBFC challenged that decision through the courts.[14]
On January 25, 2008, the BBFC won their case in the High Court that the game had been approved for release on a misinterpretation of the law. The VAC, however, approved the game for release a second time on March 14[15] and the game was released on October 31, 2008 in the United Kingdom,[2] a year after the game was released in the US. The original, unedited version remains banned in the UK.[16]
Five voice actors were confirmed to have recorded dialogue for the game. Even though two of them chose to remain anonymous, the third voice actor James Urbaniak publicly announced it on his blog on March 16, 2006, only to remove it days later. Of the other two voice actors said to have recorded dialogue for the game, one of them also recorded dialogue for the original Manhunt, like Urbaniak.[17] A commercial video was also released by Rockstar for the Wii to promote the game more widely.[18]


right from wiki.

I hate Frys's!!! I also preordered at Best Buy in store but no call so far. Is I preordered there in store is BB going to screw over its customers like Frys?


Does anyone know how does Best Buy handle in-store console pre-orders? Do I need to show up on Sunday when the store opens?

I'm not questioning the Wii's extra edit. I'm stating that Manhunt 2 was edited for ALL platforms before release.

With this item who really knows, they do pull orders but we have all heard the horror stories. If you absolutely can't make time for this in the morning I suggest you find a way just for your own peace of mind, if not then just hope for the best.

Could you actually provide proof of this? Because there is no mention of it anywhere that the Nintendo version was more toned down.

Game got an A/O rating and Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo all do not allow A/O games to be sold on their systems.

i think gta 5 coming to wii u down the road would only help nintendo. Nintendo is 100 percent trying to get so called hardcore gamers awayfrom xbox and ps3 to the wii u and that shows with the controller and the decent big name launch titles. The real test for nintendo is that can they keep getting decent 3rd party support and even get hardcore gamer games JUST on the wii from 3rd party.

A method that removed the game's censoring code of the M rated PSP and PS2 version thus restoring parts of the AO state was released by a group of PSP crackers.[42] ESRB commented on this crack stating that it was not Rockstar's fault that this occurred and stuck with the M rating.[43] Later, it was discovered the same method also works on the Wii version of the game.[44]

In September 2007, an uncensored PAL PS2 copy of the game was leaked onto the internet[45] by an employee of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, who was later fired as a result of doing this.[46]

In 2009, a fully uncensored version carrying an AO rating was officially released for PC download from Direct2Drive.[47] However, the game was later removed from the service after Direct2Drive was acquired by Gamefly, due to Gamefly's policy of not carrying AO-rated games.[48]


Interesting...

well yes that would be true but wii version was cut even more.

im sad to find that direct drive had offered manhunt 2 the pc Adult version. However gamefly mergred with them and removed it as they dont belive in games rated higher than M. So if you really want it u may have to find it on certain sites... And yes you are right the ps2 versions and psp versions were better than the wii, they were a tad better still watered down but nothing beat the wii, its in my living room and it sucks i wont play manhunt 2 ever again until i get it on pc .

*In other news ive learned a few things from the wii u debockle here:

1. FRY SUCKS, they seem to have cancelled day one preorders and others for no reason.

2. Best buy online sucks- Everthing says payment validated nothing more.

3.-walmart online sucks- havent heard anything.

4. ANd newegg blew it with overstocking the pro controllers.
Feel free to add to this list.,

Im just was making a point that to think gta 5 will launch on the wii u is just nonsense like someone said it would. Nintendo has never had a dirty nasty game like gta on their systems why? Because they think their system should be family friendly and gta is not family friendly game.

I don't think Nintendo cares as much as you think. Hell, they have games like Assassin's Creed III, Ninja Gaiden and Darksiders II as launch titles.

Some of those kills in ACIII are pretty fucking brutal.

They should pull orders and set them aside. But you never know. The lady I spoke with at my Best Buy said that I would get an e-mail Sunday morning or possibly Saturday night that my order was ready for pickup. I would think that if you get one of those e-mails, you should be good to go. But still, you never know with Best Buy, especially with this item. It would definitely be best to get there first thing in the morning, when the store opens, if you can.

im only buying wii u for nintendo first party games and 3rd party games only on the wii U. If i want to play games online my system of choice is 360 with the better online community. I'm kind of bummed nintendo did not spend the time and money to make a legit online service and that will not help them when trying ot get people from ps3 or 360.
