I know that's the popular theory around the industry, but in all fairness, the only difference between AO and M is one year in the purchaser's age and there haven't been enough AO games made to really judge whether or not it really does mean that the game isn't going to sell.
Honestly, the only ones that kept an AO rating were porn games on PC (and CD-i, in one odd little case). Very few console games have ever held the AO rating and they never held it permanently. They're also all games that I knew the title of, so it's not like they were niche games that slipped under the radar. There really just isn't enough to judge by.
But hey, I don't do the marketing and PR.
Consumer response to AO is nothing more than knee-jerk at best and blatant ignorance at worst.
