NYPD in Row Over Saints Row 2: Volition May Have New York Privileges Revoked

Ripten writes: "Illinois developer Volition, the makers of Saints Row 2, are under fire today as the New York Police department came out swinging their PR-25 side-handled baton at the e-thug simulator."

The story is too old to be commented.

Screw you NYPD! If any city should know this is the USA not China and we have a little thing called free speech! These games are rated for a reason and young children should not be playing them. So if you want to get out your batons please seek these parents who are buying these games for them.

I haven't played Saints Row 2, so I'm not sure how much they promote cop killings, but NYPD might simply be a bit more sensitive to that. I'm just a bit more sympathetic to their complaints (versus some legislative official).

to be taken seriously ... i mean come on septic avenger? police so far dont play a negatvie role but lik the other civilians they do get caught up in the self destructive chaos. but of course cop killing is gonna be taboo no matter the context. regardless its still just a game and not gonna train any mass murderers or future thugs.
