Gamers get compensation for hot coffee mod

Up to $35 if you were offended and upset

Americans who found the hot coffee mod for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas "offensive and upset" can claim up to $35 in compensation from Rockstar, People Magazine reports.

The exact amount you can claim depends upon how much documentation you have to prove your outrage.

Rockstar is referring to receipts or proof of purchase by the way, so you can throw away all those psychiatrist's reports linking your mentally deranged mind to seeing the simulated sex mod.

For our American readers and/or the intrigued:

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas First Edition Disc: Replacement Disc
Detailed Store Receipt: Cash payment up to $35.00
General Credit Card Statement or Check: Cash payment up to $17.50
Disc/Purchase Details: Cash payment up to $10.00
No Disc/Purchase Details: Cash payment up to $5.00

Further details can be found at if you feel you were traumatised by the ordeal.

As a nice epilogue, the lawyers involved have received one million dollars for defending American citizens from the tyranny of Rockstar's unused code.

That sort of money makes us think that writing about games for a living wasn't perhaps the best career choice, after all. Spotted by Gaming Steve.
