Take Two attempted to censor its violent Manhunt 2 game down to a "mature" rating but, was hacked so that banned content was revealed.

The graphic content, which was supposed to removed, was actually left on the disk, it was just hidden. The hackers defeated that blurring on the version of the game for Sony's PlayStation Portable. So far they have not hacked the game for the PS2 or the Nintendo Wii.

Fortunately for Take-Two, the hack does not roll back all the changes that enabled the game to qualify for the "Mature" rating. It also requires some technical expertise and a hacked PSP unit.
