GTA: San Andreas is notorious for many things for good or ill, but none so publicly scrutinised as its infamous ‘Hot Coffee’ mini-game. The feature was chopped from the game’s full release, but an intrepid modder – along with his friends – stumbled across traces of it within the game’s PS2 source code, and eventually made a PC mod public. That man is Patrick Wildenborg, and he has revealed all in a new interview.

According to this Kotaku story, a US court has refused to certify the proposed settlement class of the Hot Coffee lawsuit as too few people were offended by the matter for it to… matter.

As you’ll recall, it was announced in June that a mere 2,676 people had signed up to claimed their $35 from Rockstar as a result of being traumatised by the image of a virtual man having sex with a virtual woman in GTA: San Andreas.
Just goes to show.

According to this New York Times piece, a total of 2,676 people have claimed their $35 from Rockstar after being traumatized by the Hot Coffee scenes in San Andreas.
“Am I disappointed? Sure,” said Seth R. Lesser, lead lawyer for the plaintiffs. “We can’t guess as to why now, several years later, people care or don’t care. The merits of the case were clear.”
We’ll tell you why, Seth. No one with more than three brain cells gives a flying fuck. The law’s an ass. Got it yet?
