Video Game Makers Settle FTC Charges

The companies that developed and marketed the popular "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" video game agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that they failed to disclose the game's hidden sexual content. The settlement, announced June 8, is subject to final FTC approval following a public comment period that ends July 10.

Although players of the game could not access the sexual content during normal game play, a program posted on the Internet by a third party, dubbed "Hot Coffee," revealed the content, which included nude female images and a sex mini-game.
