ESRB president Patricia Vance has said:
"Contrary to some reports, however, we do not believe these modifications fully restore the product to the version that originally received an AO rating, nor is this a matter of unlocking content."
This is completely contrary to the Registers position:
"The content revealed by the mod is the true 'visceral killing' scenes that attracted the ire of both US and European censors — transforming the AO-rated testicle-ripping murder romp into a mere M-rated eyeball-gouging homicide tryst."
I would suggest Austin Modine starts writing for the Sun rather than El Reg.
