I was looking at the old releases by Rockstar Games, and I found out that Manhunt 2 has two different ESRB ratings:

  • Adults Only on PC

  • Mature on the PS2, PSP and Wii

What are the differences between this two sets of versions/releases?

According to the Wikipedia page on the game,

Originally scheduled for North American and European release in July, the game was suspended by Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive when it was refused classification in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and given an Adults Only (AO) rating in the United States.[1] As Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony Computer Entertainment do not allow AO titles on their systems, this effectively (if not technically) would have banned the game in the US as well.[2] In response to these ratings problems, Rockstar censored the game, blurring the screen during the game's executions and removing the scoring system, where players were awarded for particularly brutal killings.[3] This edited version was rated M in the US by the ESRB and was released on 29 October.
