Because clearly video games were Vietnam's biggest social and economic problem.

I wonder if they will start protesting like Egypt and Syria

This is when Hackers become useful

That sucks. But honestly it should be the users choice when to play online and when not to.

No. This is how communism works.

In fairness, East Asia is usually where the stories of children starving to death due to neglect from their MMO-playing parents come from.

I'm not entirely surprised this has happened.

Can we just bomb Vietnam and fly our boys in to bring democracy already?

Yes_22254d ago

Please tell me you're joking.

Who is we? All you do is sit at a desk and type nonsensical comments. So don't say we

Says the xbot geohot-loving pirate. Sure buddy. Surre....

"nonsense" is the guy at the desk that supports a pirate-douche like geohot. Knowing that piracy can and will put honest devs out of work and nearly killed all of PC gaming except Steam because people feel "entitled" to their hardware a bit too much. PS3 for homebrew? YA RIGHT, stop kiddin yourself.

ya im pretty sure killing thousands of ppl will bestow democracy /sarc

We did it before in 2005 and it worked.

Hahaha whose alt account is this? Masterful trolling, truly. This is no rookie we're dealing with.

NaiNaiNai2254d ago

I'm not about to drag my ass over to another country that doesn't need us.

Hell I'm almost tired of fighting for idiots like you.

Kos-Mos2254d ago

Like you did before? Did you not learn anything from Full Metal Jacket? Or all the old vegetables in us that fought in the war?

Let's think about this for a moment, shall we? Let's say the US or some place in EU decided, "You can't play late at night". Now, you get up at around 7 AM, get ready, walk out the door at 8:15, get to work at 9 AM, then work to 5 PM. You now have 5 hours to play your games online. Is that fair to you, the consumer? You paid for the game with your hard-earned money, then your government decides to tell you what you can and can't do with your very legal product?

To put it bluntly, that's BULLSHIT.

Mmmkay2254d ago

get a night job from 11pm to 7am.... game all you want. no problem.

gman_2972254d ago


But I'm sure the gamers in Vietnam are.

Like hell that's going to be enforced. That's basically telling internet cafe not to take customer's money.
