    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Wata 9.8 A+ Sealed [AO "Adults Only" ESRB Sticker], Xbox Rockstar 2005 USA. This is certainly a rare find - the ever-elusive"Adults Only" version of GTA San Andreas. That's reason enough to make this a trophy piece, but we would be remiss if we did not mention this is only the third sealed copy we've offered of the Xbox version. For those of us at Heritage who were old enough to remember the scandal, this definitely brings back some interesting memories of seeing a national discussion unfold over this game. Originally created as an inside joke between developers (and hidden inside the coding as an inaccessible mini-game), the infamous "Hot Coffee" mod in allowed gamers to experience, first-hand, a steamy and graphic side-quest for Carl "CJ" Johnson.

    The discovery of this content caused a massive controversy causing Microsoft and Sony to scramble to issue modified copies that shut off access to "Hot Coffee." In the interim, "Adults Only" stickers were sent to various video game retailers to affix over the ESRB "M" ratings for copies already on the shelves. Modifications to the game were made quickly and many existing "Hot Coffee" copies were pulled from the shelves, so these AO stickers were only around for a short shelf-life and placed on a limited few copies for either console. All this is just to say: finding a copy of this variant 16 years after the fact is no small feat, so this copy is not one to pass over by any means.
