A TV commerical for Grand Theft Auto 4 has dodged the censorship bullet in the U.K.
As reported by gamesindustry.biz, the Advertising Standards Authority declined to act on complaints about the spot, seen at left:
17 viewers took exception of the ad… Ten viewers complained about the violence, while seven took exception to the time of the broadcast…
"Although some viewers may object to the nature of the game, the ad itself did not feature sequences that were likely to have a direct harmful influence on children or young people," said the ASA.
GamePolitics readers may recall that the ASA similarly cleared a TV spot for Bully: Scholarship Edition in a ruling earlier this month.
