Rule of Rose publisher wilts under pressure

505 Games no longer to publish the horror PS2 title in the UK after wave of controversy

The PS2 psychological horror game was due out today, but RoR publisher 505 Games has announced that it "has taken the decision not to publish Rule of Rose in the UK at this time" following "discussions with our retail and publishing partners".

Rule of Rose was on the receiving end of negative publicity earlier this month when news broke that Europe's justice commissioner Franco Frattini had taken issue with the game's content.
