Late on Monday, Take-Two, the company behind the infamous Grand Theft Auto series, let the public know that they had been subpoenaed, big time. The Manhattan grand jury has launched a probe into multiple facets of the company, most notably the "Hot Coffee" mod, which some have referred to as the biggest scandal in the history of digital entertainment.
