Brazilian Judge Bans 'Bully'


Posted April 11, 2008 - By Ty Colfax

A judge in Brazil has pulled a bully move of his own banning the sale and distribution of Rockstar's Bully: Scholarship Edition citing that it's unacceptable "that everything in the game takes place inside a school.” Retail outlets as well as web sites that sell or promote the game will have 30 days to follow the judge's order.

It's a little odd to hear that in Brazil, a country where people are practically having sex in the streets, a videogame that features people beating each other up could get banned. Of course, if you know anything about what goes on in virtually all of South America, you know this is just going to put the bootleg machine in full attack mode. You can get just about anything on the streets of the major cities, from dvds, cds, games, even books. Remember those?

If I were Rockstar, I would be pissed for a lot of reasons. Not only do they lose international sales, but they're going to have big piracy issues on their hands.

Boo on Brazil.
