Parents horrified as most violent video game ever to launch on 'family friendly' Wii

via Eurogamer:

"SEGA Wii game MadWorld will "spoil the family fun image" of the console, according to Mediawatch-UK, a British organisation that campaigns for decency in television, games and films.

"I hope the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will view this with concern and decide it should not be granted a classification," John Beyer, director of Mediawatch-UK, told the Mail Online.

"What the rest of world does is up to them. We need to ensure that modern and civilised values take priority rather than killing and maiming people.

"It seems a shame that the game's manufacturer have decided to exclusively release this game on the Wii," said Beyer. "I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii.""

""I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii.""

O for F*ck sakes, The Wii is designed to protect your little precious baby's. Parental LOCK...i don't think any parent realised the system has it.

anyway :It's a Dup

If parents are expecting media content to be 100% clean all the time then they really are misinformed. They should be the ones looking after their kids, not ESRB. Lazy parents.

Capt CHAOS3745d ago

Parents unfortunately have no idea about technology alot of the time or how/where the parent lock actually is..

Let alone know what little johnny is upto surfing the net..

I have two things to say.

1. This shows that the Wii is a kiddie console and it has no place competing with real consoles like PS3 and 360.


Simply said: If parents don't care about their children, they won't check for mature ratings. If parents do, they will check.

HERES THE POINT: Only people 17 and older will buy this game. WHY ARE PEOPLE ANGRY THAT IT WILL AFFECT KIDS?

"The site will automatically detect if you try to post a story with the same url as one that has already been posted. However many sites cover the same stories so before posting a story always check the pending news area to see if it is already posted through a different source. However if the story posted on N4G is NOT the original source of the story it is ok to make a new post but only if it links to the original source of the story. If your story is not the original source you must post it as an alternative source. To do this click on the N4G news post which covers the same story as the one you wanted to post. Now click on the “Add Alternative Source” link at the bottom of the article. This way your news post will get attached to the original news post as an alternative source."

I should get smart, yet you can not scan the frontpage for already posted news.
(or those who approved this for that matter)
Stop talking about being Smart XD it does not make you sound intelligent.

Indeed the system doesn't always pick up the dupe links. Hence the reason I search before I submit. Out of all my submissions I've only submitted 5 duplicates.
However my point here is that this story is the ORIGINAL source to sidar's link meaning his is actually the duplicate.

ChickeyCantor3745d ago (Edited 3745d ago )

How is that link a Dup if its already out there on the frontpage?
You make little sense.

You are blaming me for "reporting" it, while it was your task as a contributor to look if there already was a link providing the same story.
