grand theft auto takes on a new meaning

Sex, Lies, and Videogames by Bethany McLean @ Fortune poses this question: "What's most shocking about the controversial-and top-selling-Grand Theft Auto isn't embedded sex scenes. It's the financial chicanery of the game's maker. Why don't investors care?"

What McLean goes onto report is that "on July 20 when the videogame industry's Entertainment Software Rating Board concluded that sexually explicit scenes hidden deep within the bestselling game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas could be easily accessed via software available on the Internet."

Beyond that the company's financial practices and advertising deception is the focus of the article. Yet amisdt all this controversy the company's stock continues to soar.
