Grand Theft Auto 5: ESRB Details Differences Between PS4/Xbox One & PS3/Xbox 360 Versions
What’s in that shiny new update?
Hey look, the ESRB did something cool and useful for a change. I honestly would never have predicted that, but hey we all make mistakes. Today, the ESRB released their final ratings for Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4 and the Xbox One, however the PC version was omitted from the list, perhaps due to the later release date.
Anyway, not only did they release their rating, the rating differs from that of the Xbox 360 and PS3 builds of the game. So, what are the differences you ask? Well.
One of the oddest and most glaring changes that grabs the eye is, “caricatures of ethnic/racial groups”, which is actually an addition to the original rating. The following piece of text was also redacted entirely, “the larger game allow players to use narcotics” was changed too “the larger game allow players to use drugs”. This is something you would expect to be in the original draft.
So for the most part, things remain unchanged in their eyes. Grand Theft Auto 5 releases on November 18th on PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version comes out on January 15th, 2015.
