Nintendo Does It Again

Remember earlier this-year when Nintendo Pulled Mario Party 8 and MindQuiz from Shelves because the games contained the word 'spastic'. Well it just happened again with Scrabble (DS) and 'Lesbo'.

The official response is that 'Lesbo' the derogatory slang for 'Lesbian' is in the Scrabble Dictionary, but I checked the Chambers Word Wizard Dictionary and Hasbro's Online Dictionary, neither of which turned up a result. So I am thinking that they need to improve their QA process, but I do think that it is funny that this has happened three times in the same year for Nintendo. Four times this generation if you count the naming of the Wii and all in the same region.
