According to this MTV report, IGN has now pulled its “Ladies of Liberty City” video after various parties leapt on it as justification for hating the game, a spokesperson saying by way of justification:

“IGN’s goal is to show our users all aspects of popular games on the market. In this case, we crossed a line in how we portrayed some aspects of the game and we’ve taken this video down.”

The video featured an edited string of sexual acts and Niko killing prostitutes in the street. You can see it here.

    I reckon it was the Jack Thompson thing. The video was being used as a “look, see, this is the game” example.

    There’s your reason why games media isn’t taken seriously. Morons.
