Game company to kill anti-Haitian dialogue: They’ve agreed to remove the dialogue that infuriated some. But Take Two sold 1 million copies of “GTA: Vice City” in the first day of its release. Does any change made now really matter?

The manufacturer of a video game that has been harshly criticized for its portrayal of Haitians has agreed to remove dialogue that encouraged players to “kill all Haitians.”

Take-Two Interactive Software said Tuesday that it would remove the statements from new copies of “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,” a game in which an ex-convict is hired to recover stolen drug money in the streets of Miami.
