MCV: The Sun reports that spoof URL leaves fans of Rockstar franchise disgusted
For anyone who's outside the UK, The Sun is the most read newspaper in the UK and it's primarily written for the working class with it's content heavily biased, badly written and rupert murdoch propaganda. Anyone featured in the paper that has been convicted of a crime has been branded a "beast" or a "Fiend" or a "Paedophile" simply because it stirs up hatred with the public. What the Sun says, the people do. Just because of one Welsh idiot wanting to sell his story about the ingame spoof webiste, this could potentially be a disaster on a biblical scale for GTA4 in the UK. I hate the Sun, I really really hate that propaganda, this is yet another silly report to bring the gaming industry into disrespute.
i do agree with u about the Sun, but at the same time you cant have something like that in a game.
So lame n4g finally decided to post this crap story. MCV were lame in doing a story on this story on the first place. I'ts just so mindless. Who cares if The Sun was the centre of the universe or a crap paper. The story still sucks and yes you people comment on the paedo thing, as if it were ever a present threat in the game. Idiocy.
people cant take a joke? I cant imagine what would happen if people like this watched a few south park episodes.
That is a great comparison. South Park jokes about EVERYTHING they want (and I love that about SP). How come Rockstar can't? Both are for adults. Stories by The Sun are the worst crap you could imagine, like someone explained above. Making horror or sensation out of nothing in most cases, no matter about what. The best action is to ignore that.
UGH pathetic idiotic moronic newspapers i cant even reply im that mad this is bullsh!t
You it's ok to kill people and do crimes but some black humour causes "outrage"... just like that hot coffee incident. How pathetic can you get?
of all the things to be outraged about this game, they had to pick this?? what about the lame "endings", the lame "every other character then the main guy", the horrible music selection, the "all over the place" storyline, terrible "car handling"... so many things, and yet they get outrage over a pedo catching website.
... always funnier when the ones it's directed at just don't get it! lol
@6 - i heard many people actually LIKE those things, but these are just my opinion on-topic: wow..................if you are going to pick something from a M-rated game, pick something that shouldnt be there, i mean its kind of your fault, i mean YOU looked for cheats and happen to see that site, also this is for a mature audience, one guy says his daugther was there with him, i wonder if she was there if he had niko pick up a hooker, i mean get a life
Man I really feel like indulging in some pedophilic acts right now. “It’s disgusting. It could lead people to indulge in things like that. It is totally sick. I won’t play it again.” -- The Sun.
Just what you need when you've had a bad day at work, A GOOD LAUGH!!!!!!!!
R* really did know Jason Deschoolmeester and really did hate Jason Deschoolmeester, and they knew that his little girl is called Lacey.. and since they hate Jason, they actually created that website you know.. its not coincidence at all!! trust me!! /sarcasm
I feel that the real problem was that when Jason typed the url in the address bar, he didn't realize he was still at his PC looking up cheats and ultimately got a child porn site. Poor guy was probably scarred to see his daughter up there :/.
but it says everywhere that nothing is real, everything is ingame and not from the real world.. and the computers have only got one thing on the desktop, and if you got to one of these website in reality, its all fake..
lmao. stupid morons.
Okay, it's time for a reality check here. We all know what the Sun is like and what type of audience they have and MCV are only doing their job as professional journalists by reporting the news and clearly pointing out the inconsistencies in the article. But one thing remains true: there are things you don't joke about and pedophilia is one of them. I don't care if it's only a game. I don't care if it allows you to kill ten thousands of people. But there is a limit to what game publishers can and should allow themselves to show in a game. Maybe the fact I've got a kid gives me a different perspective on this...
