Wal-Mart reaction coincidental?

Wal-Mart reaction

Replying to yesterday's controversy, a Wal-Mart spokesman insists that the removal of Bully from pre-order lists was just coincidental to Jack Thompson's lawsuit, and really a part of a larger initiative to stop all pre-orders on games without ESRB ratings. As others have observed however, Bully is about the only game on Wal-Mart's Website that has been blocked. Other "Ratings Pending" games still available include Crackdown and Dawn of War: Dark Crusade. It could be that Wal-Mart is being slow in the removal process, but it seems more likely that the company is trying to hold on to the best of both worlds.
