193w ago - Today a rumor is circulating the Internet which suggests that the next installment of ManHunt, specifically ManHunt 3, will be a PS3 exclusive title and the game will utilize Sony's recently announced PlayStation Move.
The rumor originated from a trusted source at GoFanboy.com (linked above), and along with PlayStation 3 exclusivity it claims ManHunt 3 will be one of the big rumored E3 announcements this year and take advantage of the PS3 Move motion controller.
To quote: "There have been murmurs about ManHunt 3 since the highly controversial release of ManHunt 2 for the Wii and PS2.
From what we're being told, the game will be PS3 exclusive and utilize the PlayStation 3's upcoming Move add-on. It definitely makes sense since the PS3 would be a perfect fit for the ManHunt sequel."
299w ago - The ban on controversial video game Manhunt 2 in the UK has been lifted and the game will now go on sale.
The Video Appeals Committee upheld an earlier decision that the game could be sold, following a nine-month battle between makers Rockstar and UK censors.
The British Board of Film Classification had taken the fight to ban the game to the High Court, saying the game "went too far".
An edited version of the title will be released with an 18 certificate.
The game was first banned in June 2007 and an edited version of the game was later rejected by the BBFC.
David Cooke, director of the BBFC said: "As I have said previously, we never take rejection decisions lightly, and they always involve a complex balance of considerations.
"We twice rejected Manhunt 2, and then pursued a judicial review challenge, because we considered, after exceptionally thorough examination, that it posed a real potential harm risk.
"However, the Video Appeals Committee has again exercised its independent scrutiny. It is now clear, in the light of this decision, and our legal advice, that we have no alternative but to issue an 18 certificate to the game."
Developers Rockstar Games has always maintained that the content of Manhunt 2 is no different...
306w ago - The developer of controversial video game Manhunt 2 has failed in its latest attempt to release the game in the UK.
A high court judge ruled that the Rockstar Games' title must be re-evaluated by an appeals committee.
The violent game was first banned in June 2007 and has since been subject to numerous reviews and court cases.
Developer Rockstar Games said it did not understand the decision to spend public money repeating a certification process it had already passed.
The latest court case is the result of a ruling in December 2007 that allowed British censors to fight a decision by the Video Appeals Committee (VAC), which said the game could be classified and released.
The British Board of Film Classification's successfully argued that the game had been approved for release on a misinterpretation of the law.
The latest ruling means that the VAC must now re-evaluate the game under new guidelines.
But the game's developers believe the move is expensive and unnecessary.
"We believe the Video Appeals Committee decision was correct and do not understand the court's decision to expend further public resources to censor a game that contains content well within the bounds established by the British Board of Film Classification's 18-plus...

This plug-in, when installed with any custom firmware 3.52 or lower will remove the censors from the Mahunt 2 game for the playstation portable system.
Before this plug-in, the only way to remove the censors was through a modification to an illegal backup of the game. This plug-in changes all of that. with the simple installation of this plugin everyone, including those with the official UMD can enjoy the game the way it was meant to be.
This plug-in only needs to be activated once, and will not interfere with any otehr games or plugins that you may have. it will only execute when manhunt 2 is playing and only tweak the game as needed. this means no unwanted crashing, and any other problems that may have been caused by the manual removal of the censors.
Now in version 2.0 the plugin adds in camera tweaks to the already removed filters to prevent the camera from shaking during executions.
