British politicians support games!

In a rare break with the media and political norms of painting video games as being evil and destrying children, British politician Shaun Woodward MP has said that the video game industry recieves unfair negative press and also claimed that this was echoed by the Prime Minister, Tony Blair.

Woodward said, "There is a collective sense around that video games are bad," said Woodward. "The fact of the matter is we have got tens of millions of people playing video games in this country, deriving huge satisfaction and pleasure from it." He went on to say that the video games industry needed to work harder to advertise to wide society about the benefits of gaming.

The story is too old to be commented.
