    ps2 Major UK retailers refuse Bully

    Major electronics retailers PC World, Currys and Dixons have refused to stock controversial Rockstar title Bully, renamed Canis Canem Edit in Europe.

    All owned by DSG International, the group has confirmed the title will not be on sale in High Street stores PC World and Currys Digital, as well as online outlet Dixons.co.uk.

    "We have no plans to stock Canis Canem Edit," said a statement from Currys.

    "We're fully aware people will be able to buy this game elsewhere, but we feel this game is not appropriate for Currys' family-friendly image."

    "We have a good relationship with the game's producers Rockstar, and look forward to working with them going forward," concluded the statement.

    The above outlets currently sell a range of software, including 18-rated titles from a variety of publishers.

    PC World is taking pre-orders for Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, as well as Grand Theft Auto IV, to be released in October 2007.

    Canis Canem Edit is released in Europe on October 27th, and carries a BBFC 15 rating.
