Target Pulls Grand Theft Auto V Off Shelves in Australia

Target has today announced that they will be pulling all versions of Grand Theft Auto V off their shelves in Australia and they will no longer be selling the game. This action is in response to customer complaints regarding the game’s content.

Target is a store primarily frequented by families with young children, and perhaps they took offense to a R rated video game being made available in a family oriented store. The primary reason cited for its removal was feedback from customers regarding the game’s violent depiction against women.
