Few take up legal offer over hidden sex scenes.

Post by Benny on 27th June 2008, 1:38 pm

The lawyers who sued the makers of the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas say they are shocked.

Because few people who bought the game were offended by sex scenes buried in the software.

Any purchaser upset about hidden sex in the violent game could file a claim under a settlement the lawyers struck with its maker, Take-Two Interactive.


But of the millions of people who bought the version after its release in 2004, exactly 2,676 filed claims.

The civil lawsuit was filed after the disclosure of the sex scenes, accessible only with third-party software. The suit charged the company with defrauding buyers by failing to disclose the sex scenes.

Mr Seth Lesser, the lead lawyer for the plaintiffs, said: 'Am I disappointed? Sure. We can't guess as to why now, several years later, people care or don't care. The merits of the case were clear.'

Far bigger than the payout to plaintiffs will be the fees sought by the lawyers who brought the class action.

Mr Lesser and his colleagues at 10 other law firms have asked for more than US$1.3 million ($1.8m) - compared with less than US$30,000 that Take-Two Interactive's lawyers say it will spend to resolve the claims for US$5 to US$35 each, or a clean copy of the game.

Experts say this is untypical.
