Who remembers Snow?
Today’s news that GTA Chinatown Wars on the kid-friendly Nintendo DS will contain a drug dealing mini-game reminded us that as recently as June, 2006 GTA publisher Take-Two Interactive put the kibosh on Snow, a drug dealing simulator for the more adult-centric PC platform. The game had been on the show floor at E3 just a month before.
What’s different now?
- In June, 2006 Hot Coffee was still a big issue for T2 and the game biz
- GTA Chinatown Wars = GTA + the Housers. With their contract expiring in February, T2 is likely to be quite accomodating to the creative urges of the reclusive brothers behind the best-selling GTA series.
Here’s correspondent Colin McIness 2006 report on Snow from the old-school GP.
