Today, 13 September, GTA: San Andreas should be back on shelves of all retailers. If you were one of the few people who didn't have the opportunity to buy the game yet, then now is the time to go get one. The ESRB gave it an "Adults Only" rating due to the "hot coffee" mod that unlocked hidden sexually explicit content. The new version doesn't contain that content and is yet again rated "M" for Mature.
the whole thing was just stupid. you could only access the hot coffee mod deliberately by downloading it using action replay. ESRB made it sound as the mod was already in the game and could be accessed by anyone. Luckily here in New Zealand they investigated it and left it the same rating and i don't even think that they made it a requirement to have the patch.
