Jack Thompson Lays His Legal Eye on Halo 3

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 7 years ago

The Courts

Riley Munoz writes "Hey Slashdot, Once again the herald of anti-gaming, Jack Thompson, points his misguided finger towards another big fish in the gaming industry, Microsoft. With a scornful letter forwarded to Game Almighty today, Thompson thrashes on the recently released Halo 3 Beta and puts blame on Bill Gates, again, if this "hyper violent" video game lands in hands of any minor. Sample paragraph: "Here's the deal, Mr. Gates: Either Microsoft undertakes dramatic, real steps, through its marketing, wholesale, and retail operations to assure that Halo 3 is not sold, via the Internet and in stores, directly to anyone under 17, or I shall proceed to make sure that Microsoft is held to that standard by appropriate legal means. I have done that before successfully as to Best Buy, and I shall do so again as to Microsoft and all retailers of Halo 3." http://www.gamealmighty.com/story-individual/story /Jack_Thompson_Lays_His_Legal_Sites_on_Halo_3/ Thanks for any links!
