Bully renamed!

In a surprising move, Rockstar has officially retitled Bully to "Canis Canem Edit," the Latin for "Dog Eat Dog." A name change wouldn't normally be a big deal; such an awkward choice suggests, however, that Rockstar is reacting to criticism, whether it's coming from activists, politicians, or lawyers like Jack Thompson. The idea may be to defuse it by discouraging a direct link between bullying and gameplay. In any case, Rockstar does not expect the new name to delay the October release. UPDATE: The change will only apply to the European version of the game. Do that many Europeans remember their Latin?
