Hal Halpin, president of the Entertainment Consumer Association -- a consumer advocacy group for computer and video game players -- issued an open statement to Fox News after the network aired a misleading debate segment about the Xbox 360 RPG Mass Effect last week. Both news anchor Teri Van Horn and guest Cooper Lawrence claimed that Mass Effect featured ponographic content and that the game was being marketed towards young boys.
X-Play has Halpin's full statement on the issue.
In addition, X-Play contacted Halpin for further comment regarding the controversy. Halpin has responded in defense of the legitimacy of the video game medium.
