A man from Lincolnshire who has been jailed for leading officers on a 100mph chase through Grantham admitted to police that he learned to drive on his Playstation.
I learned how to build cities in Simcity. Now Im not allowed within 150 miles of Detroit.
Kwame fo life
If only he had learned to drive using NFS Rivals, he would have learned to outrun all those cops and escape! :P
Get a mixture of GT and NFS Rivals and you got about the closest thing to real life running away from the cops as you can get :P
Learned to drive a real automobile on his PlayStation? That's it, we gotta ban those Game Boxes ...don't you see, they're destroying the moral fiber of our perfect society /s
Well that explains the cop yelling L2! L2!!!
I'd believe the bastard if he said he bought a logitech racing wheel or If he actually slowed down in the corner and started to accelerate after he hit the apex.
Why da hell is the video attached a freaking ad for spike strips? xD
The power of the Playstation!
Video games are serious business
I hope a cop shoots him in the legs and says " I learned to be a cop by playing L.A Noire
Cop shoots him multiple times in face then says "[email protected]$k yea". Cop says he learned how to police playing gta v
So? What about all the people who lead high speed chases and learnt to drive normally? Should we ban driving lessons?
Judge: Even if I DID believe you, that's NOT gonna get you a lighter sentence. Besides... I learned how to put punks like you away from playing Phoenix Wright! :)
I started playing GT from the first and it is indeed what taught me how to drive, when I was 18 I bought a banger from a friend and went straight out on to the road without a single lesson,some people are just a "natural" with certain life skills, so I learnt car control with GT and the rest on the road.
Apparently you're not alone there... http://n4g.com/news/1793457...
I can't say I've learnt driving from GT but i have learnt how to handle the car coolly when something suddenly happens. It just happens so naturally. It's un-describable.
He got caught right away so Sony failed...
That's definitely a good thing.
I learned how to rip out a spine with only one hand by playing Mortal Kombat.
Theres more that learned to drive a car by... Driving a car.. We should really think of banning game consoles and cars.
what's up with the ad video?
I learned to drive thanks to Gran Turismo
My main characters in video games, always get the girls, I should be getting a bunch of ladies in the real world
"He was also banned from driving for three years and ordered to take an extended test." Extended test? ... they have got to be talking about Drive Club 2 with VR. This guy could get away with it, if he just tells them the game that he had played was still in beta.
If you learn to drive in Driveclub, your either gonna end up wrapped around a lamppost, or more likely, you're just gonna stall before you start :p
They should do a marketing campaign around this , it could go something like "learn to drive , start a police chase, get arrested and lose your license or go to jail only on playstation"
