GameStop Drops San Andreas
The #1 videogame specialty store today announced that they will drop the sale of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. All games have been removed for the PC, PS2, and Xbox versions, from retail location and from their website. The decision came as a result of the new Adult Only rating from the ESRB.
GameStop intends to return all new units of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to Take-Two Interactive for full credit and to re-stock the game when it has been modified to meet the ESRB’s Mature rating. That is, if indeed a modified version receives such a rating. GameStop also announced that it will incur a $1.1 million charge in its second fiscal quarter to write-down the value of its “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” used inventory currently in stock.
