So, to prevent more riots in the future, it still remains to be seen whether the top authorities in London will want to take measures by blocking access to the upcoming release of widely expected blockbuster shooter hit this coming months, particularly, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3.
Yesterday, The London Evening Standard, whose front page of their daily newspaper suggested Grand Theft Auto is the one that had inspired London’s riots although that later has been debunked with the paper issued a reprint binning the game blame reference altogether.
The paper originally published the blurb: “Children as young as ten, inspired by video game, among the looters”, along with a ‘Lawless London’ headline.
However, the sub-head later has been changed to: “Children as young as ten hunted by Police”. All reference to the popular Grand Theft Auto video game was also dismissed from the main story.
But still, concerned are still there that video games has been playing a major part in the outrage of the young teens in UK.
Modern Warfare 3 will debut in November while for Battlefield 3, they will hit the shelves in the previous month of October.
