Wii: Your Personal Murder Training Device
Posted by Anthony Dickens
American comedian Jack Thompson has done it again, apparently the Wii acts as a training device that might prepare us for committing an offence.
"Florida retailers are scheduled to sell a very violent video game called Manhunt 2 which will be available, remarkably, for “play” on the kids-friendly Nintendo Wii gaming platform. The Wii device does not utilize traditional push button game controllers but instead utilizes hand-held motion capture devices… It is a training device."
Either Jack Thompson truly hates Rockstar games, or he secretly works for their PR department, it's quite ironic the more comments he comes out with the more kids are gonna get their hands on these games. But is that actually a problem? I don't think so.
As pointed out by qj.net, it'll be interesting to see if Nintendo actually gets any opposition over its upcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl that "encourages kids to beat the crap out of their friends and throw them out the stage". Peachy.
