Kanagawa prefecture, just south of Tokyo, has decided to label Grand Theft Auto III as 'harmful"?, which means the game can't be sold or rented to minors. This is the first time Japan has placed restrictions on a game due to violence.  We previously discussed this issue but at that time the identity of the game in question was unknown.  Who would have guessed it was a Grand Theft Auto game causing all the trouble?!
