It would appear that the PlayStation 2 version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas includes the Hot Coffee sex mod, with cheat codes proving the full, highly explicit scenes were not the work of the hacking community. This bombshell wraps up the issue of the origin of the saucy code, proves Rockstar sought to deliberately mislead the public and adds weight to calls from conservative groups to have tighter controls on videogame content.
Here's how you can see it, on the PlayStation 2, for yourself. You first need to go and buy an Action Replay Max device. You then enter the following code:
Date & Girlfriend Codes...
Always Driving Date
Always Dancing Date
Always Dinner Date
Quick Fun Increase (Driving Dates)
Hot Coffee (After Successful Date)
WARNING: Uncensored Hot Coffee CODE UNLOCKS ADULT CONTENT
Censored Hot Coffee
Note: Use this code if you wish to save game with Uncensored Hot Coffee disabled
Uncensored Hot Coffee
Note: DO NOT SAVE WITH THIS CODE ACTIVE This cheat will save and MAY corrupt your save USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
You will be stuck in an invisible box after adult scene Press R1 R2 L1 L2 buttons at the same time to escape
The code comes with a warning that saving your game when the mod is active might corrupt existing saves. So now you know.
To use the code, you need to take one of CJ's ladyfriends out on a date. Should the date prove successful, you'll be invited in for coffee. Instead of the usual censored external view of a house with some girlie moaning coming from it, you'll be treated to a fully interactive sex experience including the ability to assume three different positions of love.
And back on point, this proves that the mod was always in the original game. As you will know, Action Replay and similar devices can only manipulate existsing code within the game. It cannot add new content. All of which leads us to Rockstar's comment on the issue made last week. When bombarded by endless questions on the matter by the press and, no doubt, several official sources, Rockstar released the following statement:
"Since the 'Hot Coffee' scenes cannot be created without intentional and significant technical modifications and reverse-engineering of the game's source code, we are currently investigating ways that we can increase the security protection of the source code and prevent the game from being altered by the 'Hot Coffee' modification." Rockstar made this comment in reference to the PC version. As you can see the firm clearly and deliberately implies that the mod is the work of an external force. Which, well, you know, isn't really true...
SPOnG readers will be aware that the the Hot Coffee mod has already attracted the attention of videogame censorship proponents such as Hillary Clinton
seeing calls for stricter controls on videogame content. Now, as some sources have pointed out, there are no rude bits actually shown in the scenes. You don't get to see a stiffy, front bottom or anything that might be deemed as crossing the line, making the mod no more explicit than an episode of Bored Housewives, a fact that Rockstar will no doubt point out when it meets with Senator Clinton, the Federal Trade Commission, David Walsh, president and founder of the National Institute on Media and the Family; Mary Bissell, fellow at the New America Foundation; and Kiersten Stewart, director of public policy for the Family Violence Prevention Fund - an imposing bunch. The point of the meeting, which is not yet dated, will be to determine who is responsibe for the Hot Coffee mod in San Andreas.
