Take Two issuing settlements over Hot Coffee

Take Two’s now voluntarily issuing cheques to anyone offended by Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’s infamous Hot Coffee scenes.

T2 is sending out settlements from as low as $5 to $35 for anyone who was “affected” by the original disc print, which has since been replaced with an edited version. With that sort of money, you could buy your own hot coffee. And a sticky bun.

The Hot Coffee scenes were found on the PC version first by a modder in 2006, before a total recall was made by Take Two over San Andreas for PC, PS2 and Xbox.
