I would hate to be the police officer that called for the SWAT back-up.

Imagine if the SWAT had RAM the door, pop some smoke and shout ´´Get THE ++++ DOWN!!!``

They would probably keep playing saying,
´´Man this is one realistic game! Great sound effects!``

Once KillZone 2 comes out, people will be arrested for NOT playing PS3

I'd be laughing all the way to the bank...
My lawyer\ solicitor would love this!

Sounds like the neighbour was just pissed off at the noise. The SWAT team should have brought the neighbour in too.

True Dolby 7.1 Surround sound system (only on PS3)

They were not arrested.
After then police had searched the apartment and heard their story they were free to play again. Just at a lower volume.

I from Denmark and read the story in danish papers yesterday.

A nod to 7.1 surround sound...
...so realistic, it makes trained Police Officers call for back-up.

da_hitman81  +   1924d ago
only thing missing is that impact vest so you can truly feel the game LOL

There is no way that a cop who is on the premises would mistake surround sound for actual gunfire. Trust me, I target shoot a lot, guns are VERY loud, I've cranked my surround sound before, and it's never made my ears ring...

This is either a case of Danish Police being failtacular or the person who called in the complaint blew it WAY out of proportion.
milkyway  +   1924d ago
they were listening to that song made entirely from cod4 sounds!

Raoh  +   1924d ago

Zip  +   1924d ago

HAHA This is the funniest news I've read so far this year!
I do feel sorry for the two guys that were arrested though.
Its just funny how you can now get arrested for simply playing a video-game lol.
Skynetone  +   1924d ago
They forgot to mention that three officers were shot during this raid
Alib8000  +   1924d ago
Epic ad
Sony should use this as an advertisement... Sounds so real, you get arrested.
liquidsnake  +   1924d ago
Hahaha I was thinking of the same thing.
bviperz  +   1924d ago
Talk about an excellent sound source. Hope they don't get charged criminally, maybe just disturbing the peace.
ashwx  +   1924d ago
dumb neighbours, if somebody was actually shooting, you could tell the difference :P

er også fra danmark, læste det igår på GR :P
infamous_27  +   1923d ago
No, The PS3's sound is so amzing it's hard to tell the difference ;P
Bob Dole  +   1923d ago
You'd have to have some serious speakers and amplifiers to compare to the sound of a real gunshot. You can definitely tell the difference.
Cyber Gamer  +   1923d ago
its either they used great speakers like B&W or the cops and neighbours was high as hell lol
Zip  +   1923d ago
hold da kæft! hvor mange danskere er vi lige her? troede fandme kun det var udelukkende amerikanere! smid mig på jeres psn: andre1986

theflyingfool  +   1923d ago
pretty amazing
this made me laugh so hard...

get the swat team at my house
Nihilism  +   1923d ago
the google translation on theat article is terrible
oh and funny story, i bet they were getting into the game thinking they were badass, eg. 'take that MF' and blow someone away in a game, *less than a second later*, the door splinters and they jump to see a swat battering ram smash the door and it's locks off and 10 armed people dressed like the ones they thought they just pwned in game come in and scare the shi% out of them

cjflora  +   1923d ago
Microsoft will stop at nothing.
Wow...I thought paying journalists to write "failure" stories about the PS3 was bad, but now they're getting people arrested? They will stop at nothing! LMAO...anyway that is pretty funny. I wonder if they were yelling "Hold on, just one more level" as they were being handcuffed.
SprayandPreycom  +   1923d ago
youd be pissed to
if you heard gunshots and porn the whole night from the apartment next to your room seperated only by two sheets of dry wall some people just dont respect there neighbors either way if swat does come out someone is paying the min 5k bill
