Not sure exactly what this means

Alternate hard R and PG cuts on the DVD?

People who hate onscreen sex can rejoice in the release of "Games of Thrones"' first season on DVD. They no longer have to endure all that nudity to learn about the Lannister family tree, the Targaryen history with dragons or why Joffrey is an illegitimate heir to the throne. Released earlier this month, it methodically explains aspects of Westeros that the show breezes through en route to its next decapitation.

It means the market offers what will sell the most copies.

It might mean that there are two cuts available in the DVD, one with, one without. More l;likely they're saying that there is so much supplementary material in the package that the icky scenes can safely be skipped.

It appears to be the latter... No mention of alternate cuts in the descriptive material on Amazon.

Sold 350,000 units in the first week at about 35 bucks a throw, so they certainly don't need my thoughts about making more accessable.

OTOH, buttons that enabled one to play a given episode either with or without would be pretty easy to set up.
