Overstock.com sells rape simulation video game

Overstock Auctions RapeLay PC Game English Edition Sexy Item 43855975

Overstock.com sells "RapeLay PC Game English Edition Sexy" on their website which to me looks like a PR-blunder of massive-ginourmous proportions. Yes, that Overstock, the brand with the "O" lady Sabine that drove brand recognition up to 46 %, and the female target market, is selling rape-simulation games in their auction area. For real. It's ten bucks.

Yesterday Amazon was selling it as well, The Belfast Telegraph reports and has this fantastic bit of info:

The game's producer, Illusion is a company from Japan famous for making similar 3D Hentai games.
The online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, says: "Due to Illusion's policy, its games are not intended to be sold or used outside of Japan, and official support is only given in Japanese and for use in Japan."

...yes, because it only being intended for sale in the Japanese market makes it all OK? What?
