Holy bloody plastic bags geeks! Rockstar has announced the controversial “murder simulator“, Manhunt, is now available for purchase on the PSN. Ten bucks will nab you one of gaming’s bloodiest, vicious games to see the light of day. A game where life is a hunt and you’re the prey, where cameras watch your every move and record every brutal kill you make.
I remember getting game on launch day and playing till 3 in the morning, it hooked me. My geek queen of course couldn’t understand my disturbing fascination with it but to each his own, right? My favorite kill object was the plastic bag, sneaking up on a gun wielding nogoodnik and wrapping it around his head was quite exhilarating. I am not a serial killer by the way, just so you know.
The PSN version of Manhunt has been modified but it isn’t a remake. No trophy support here just a PS2 classic on PSN. I can confirm it is already loaded into the PSN so you can go get your murder on now if you want.

For the last few weeks, we’ve been hearing that the relationship between Rockstar Games and Team Bondi has been sliding into the abyss. Team Bondi has been on the hot seat for the revelations that working there is harsher than employment on the Death Star. The accusations stem from 110 hour work weeks, credit not being properly given, aggressive management, and one angry boss in the form of founder Brendan McNamara.
McNamara saw Rockstar as interfering and even felt they mistreated Team Bondi over a logo redesign for L.A. Noire. The founder email bombed the entire staff at the development studio his rage over it, instead of just sending it to the intended recipient, production designer Simon Wood. Of course, he also claimed that the working conditions at the developer were not unfair.
