First porn stars, now politicians weigh in

While last week saw adult entertainer Ron Jeremy claiming games were a more negative influence than porn, this week’s naysayer is the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez.

“Those games they call ‘PlayStation’ are poison,” he told a radio station.“ Some games teach you to kill.” He claims that violent games exist so capitalist firms can“sell weapons later”. But unless Nintendo, Sony et al have taken out shares in Kalashnikovs, it seems more likely they’re just trying to flog games.
