Rockstar Games isn’t on the hook for the fact that hackers have removed the censorship filters from the PSP version of Manhunt 2, says Entertainment Software Ratings Board president Patricia Vance. What’s more, she doesn’t believe that the hack would change the game’s rating.

Contrary to some reports… we do not believe these modifications fully restore the product to the version that originally received an AO rating, nor is this a matter of unlocking content.

Well, hey. If restoring the game’s killing sequences to their original unretouched grossness doesn’t raise the game from an M to an AO, Rockstar should totally release a “Director’s Cut” version of the game, don’t you think?

At any rate, Vance says that because Rockstar was totally upfront with the board about the content in the game, they don’t believe that they omitted any required information from their submission.

Well riddle me this then: if restoring the original gory killings doesn’t increase the game back to its original AO rating, how did it get the AO in the first place?
