Vice City Temporarily Pulled

Following up on reports on Sixth Axis and the Steam forums, Blend Games has word that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is no longer available on Steam due to an RIAA copyright claim over music licensing. They have word from Rockstar that the open-world action game would return "as soon as possible." They also have an unconfirmed report that this is over licensing of Wanna be Startin' Something, a Michael Jackson song featured on the game's Fever 105. Seems like they should be able to charge extra for a version of the game without that song. #notafan.

Fuck I hate the US. Not that I really give a fuck about GTAVC but something about the RIAA assholes once again throwing weight around like they own the fucking world really gets me.

It's an EIGHT year old game and the song in question has to be even older than that and is also made by a crazy blackwhite accused kiddy fiddler dead guy.

SOMEONE has entirely too much time AND money(and AIR if you ask me) on their hands....
