Last night GamePolitics reported on the outcry over a Japanese rape game offered on Amazon.com.
Among those expressing disgust over PC hentai title RapeLay was British MP Keith Vaz, long a video game industry critic.
At the time we predicted that – since RapeLay was offered as a used product by re-seller Hentaiguy – Amazon likely didn’t know about the game and would do the right thing when they found out.
That now appears to be the case.
LifeNews.com reports that RapeLay has been removed from Amazon.com listings:
Amazon.com has dropped its listing for a controversial Japanese video game called Rapelay that involves raping women and forcing them to have abortions. The so-called "rape simulator" game was sold on the web site and included a graphic description of the gameplay.
Although a listing for the product is available through online searches, the link to it on Amazon’s web page no longer functions.
We’re also not finding any additional sales listings from Hentaiguy. Perhaps Amazon has shown him the door.
