The continuing legal battle between publisher Take-Two and Jack Thompson became more aggressive over the weekend as the controversial Miami attorney threatened to "destroy" the publisher after it filed a pre-emptive lawsuit.
Take-Two seeks to block Thompson's attempts to have upcoming Rockstar titles Grand Theft Auto IV and Manhunt 2 declared a public nuisance.
"I have been praying, literally, that Take-Two and its lawyers would do something so stupid... that such a misstep would enable me to destroy Take-Two," said Thompson in a statement issued to the press and reported by gamepolitics.com.
"The pit Take-Two has dug for itself will be patently clear next week when I strike back," he added.
