Video Game Lawsuit

An elderly grandmother in New York, who says she unknowingly bought her 14-year old grandson a racy video game, is suing the maker of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" and its parent company.

Florence Cohen is seeking damages for herself and for everyone else who purchased the game -- which had an M-rating for Mature, but wound up containing hidden, sexually explicit scenes.

After a storm of negative publicity, the game's rating was recently changed to reflect adult-use only.

Cohen's lawyer says the companies should at least offer refunds, and "make sure this doesn't happen again."

In her suit, the 85-year-old Cohen accuses Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive Software of engaging in false, misleading and deceptive practices.

The companies have released a statement apologizing to consumers
and vowing to eliminate the hidden sexual images that can be unlocked with a simple code.
