Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launches this week and once again, the game is embroiled in controversy.
Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick addressed this issue on Bloomberg TV and while he admitted that players can have sex with prostitutes and then kill them, GTAV has a lot more to offer.
He also explained that the setting demands such content:
"This is a criminal setting; it's a gritty underworld; it is art. And I embrace that art. And it's beautiful art. But it is gritty."
Zelnick then compared gaming to movies and TV and really, they all share a "similar universe." GTAV provides hundreds of hours of entertainment and you can participate in all sorts of activities, including flying, racing, diving, and just exploring the vast virtual metropolis that is Los Santos. Zelnick says the game can be rough, of course, but that's sorta the point.
Stay tuned for our review of the updated GTAV…
