  • munky, Ah, but you are wrong. Rockstar has everything to do with this. The same portion can be unlocked in the PS2 version. Here's an article from kotaku.com on it: Gamespot writer and all around nice guy Tor writes that the site’s resident test editor was able to unlock the mini-game sex which is apparently built in to GTA: San Andreas with Action Replay Max and a brand new copy of the PS2 version of the game. To prove or disprove rumors that the PS2 San Andreas contains a sexually graphic minigame, GameSpot decided to test the cheat codes circulating around the Web on a sealed, first-edition copy of San Andreas. After acquiring the “Uncensored Hot Coffee” codes from the respected tech-blog Kotaku, we entered them into an easily obtainable Action Replay Max cheat device. The little test went swimmingly and the editor was having rhythmic digital mini-game sex in no time. While Tor writes that the sex is nothing worse than what you would see in an episode of Sex in the City, it still seems to point to the fact that someone was a big, fat liar. For weeks Rockstar has been denying they had anything to do with this content, but it sounds like that’s not true. I spoke with a Rockstar spokesman this afternoon and asked him this question: Would it be correct to say that the statement you released earlier this week means that Rockstar did not put what is being called the Hot Coffee content on the game disc? The spokesman said it would absolutely be correct and said that the statement was written the way it was to clear up confusion, not create more. He also said that the company had no plans on saying that the content was in fact made by Rockstar and put in the game as a marketing ploy. While I’m not saying this guy lied to me, nor am I saying this latest revelation proves that Rockstar did indeed purposely release this content as some sort of sexy Easter Egg, I sure can’t figure out how Rockstar couldn’t be innocent in all of this.

  • You guys really need some new editors as this has been in the news for about a month now. How about the fact that this is such old news that the government is now getting involved and might change the game to an AO rating

  • I say let it die! It's just furthering the christianization of our country. Screw that. I'd rather see Jennifer Love Hewitt any day.

  • I say if the technology is there for faster connections, then bring it on! I'm sick of not being able to play UT2004, Doom 3, etc online while downloading w/ bit torrent. If I can have a faster connection that allows me to have 5 downloads running and a ping of 60 in a game, then it's about time!

  • That shouldn't be a problem. The router comes with an ethernet cable to hook up the closest computer. For the one that is too far away you would need either a 802.11G Usb adapter or a PCI wireless adapter. Both can be found fairly cheap at pricewatch.com and newegg.com

  • Yeah, this router works with either DSL or Cable. I have it hooked up to my Time Warner Cable connection and it's flawless. If you want to hook up two computers the only extra thing you would need would be an extra "straight" ethernet cable. You would hook an ethernet cable from your DSL modem/bridge to the router then a cable from the router to each computer. Pop in the Belkin software that is supplied with the device and it is up and running within moments. A PCMCIA card is only needed if you want to hook up a laptop wirelessly. You might also want to check for USB wireless adaptors for the second computer if it is too far away to run a cable to. But, pick up the router and give it a try. I give it a thumbs up and it's a good deal.

  • It's a good router. I bought it two days ago at Circuit City for 9.95 after rebates. Also picked up a belkin PCMCIA wireless card for my VAIO for 14.95. Both the router and the card are 802.11G and work perfectly.

  • I haven't ordered one as of yet. It's still a bit too pricey for me right now, although I'd absolutely kill to have one. It has a great screen and great ideas behind it. It'll be even better if Sony does release some type of PDA type software (word proc., browser, etc) for it.
