Last week, Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification breathed new life
into a rumor that 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand
, which many had believed to be a casualty in the Activision-Vivendi merger, had found a new publisher in THQ -- info made public when the OFLC stamped the game with an MA 15+ rating. A few days ago, the rumor seemed to become concrete -- the British Board of Film Classification has assigned Fiddy
an "18" rating, also attributing the game to THQ.
While it now seems like incontrovertible fact that Blood on the Sand
is still quite alive and well, THQ recently told British gaming news site MCV that they could not comment on "the rumour" -- either a testament to THQ's bizarre hype-building practices, or to the unfathomable excellence
of the resurrected game.
