Iraqi Kidnap Victim Subjected To PlayStation

British hostage Peter Moore will soon be returning to the UK from Iraq, after spending the last six months of his two-and-a-half year period of captivity with only satellite television, a laptop, and a PlayStation to keep him occupied.

The story is too old to be commented.

yeah good one kotaku, haha, did you think this would be funny before or after your weekly underage cosplay galleries.
jesus know your god damn limits for once, this guy was in solitary confinement for two and a half years and you think making a gaming article is entirely relevant?

Look at the title. It was asking for hits. Like being subjected to a videogame console is horrible after being subjected to torture. Yeah sure. Extremists being Sony Fanboys? Please, this console war is ridiculous. Kotaku go into a sh!tter and die.

the 4 militairy personel protecting him were all executed, and when he had been blind folded b4 his release, he thought he too, would be shot.
As Alan Partridge would say " Sub-Human scum"

Couldn't agree more. There isn't a damned thing funny about this scenario, but Kocrapu as usual has to find a way to make some damned amusing article out of it. See, it's sh*t like this that makes me hate Kotaku.

Edit: Read the comments....the fans of the site are actually worse than the people writing the 'articles.' More positive proof that one should not underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

To read the comments, I have to visit the site - Something I utterly refuse to do.

exactly my toughts.. i was gonna post the same a few hours ago when i read the "article"..

no wonder theyre fans of kotaku.. this POS site should be banned from N4G.. not even the most hardcore fanboys here are like that..

I wouldn't be able to take it. I would have asked the guard to finish me off. 2 years off Playstation is waaaay too much, very inhumane.

nycredude4227d ago


Maybe you would prefer two and a half years of torture, c0ckmeat sandwich, and a electric probe up your ass instead?!

Seriously this a new low in game writing. From now on I will NEVER call it gaming journalism cause that is a slap in the face of REAL journalism.

The situation he describes is not something to take lightly. Mike Fahey should be ashamed of himself for using this mans situation and the deaths of his bodyguards to get hits for his site, to get a laugh, and as flame bait against Sony and Playstation or even as a console article at all.

This mans situation is real life and is much more important than a console or fanboy flame bait.

Worst punishment ever.

-EvoAnubis-4227d ago

100% fair. Normally, I'd be right there with you. The only reason I clicked on the link was to see if at least fans of the site had the decency to have the same issue with this article as we did. They did not.

But I wonder what games the Iraqis let him play?

Bereaver4228d ago

Modern Warfare 2? lololol

Nah, probably just a PS1 right?

Static-X4228d ago

I can't think of any Iraqi propaganda games on that system though :P

and best of food of that they have and not bad accommodation for their prisoners because Islam order us to treat the prisoners with all care and guess what Americans do in return??

1: torture in all the secret or not secret prisons in the world
2: more torture to the point of death
3: more wars and rapes and killings
4: more of everything that is cruel to their prisoners and non prisoners from the Islamic followers!!!

I remember Jesus peace be upon him said in the bible that you will know between and false prophet and a true prophet from their fruit(teachings/followers of those teachings)! a bad tree will bring bad fruits and a good tree will bring good fruits!!!

and if any body study Islam not from an anti Islam resources, then they will know what a good fruit prophet Mohamed peace be upon him had brought to humanity!

unfortunately the media is on all out full war on Islam with the help of their secret intelligent members in al-qaida!!

the latest joke is the failed bombing of the American airplane!!! any one who knows of politics will know that the reason for this attack is to justify the killing of innocents and the involvement in Yemen!!

if they want terrorist then they are sitting in big palaces for 30+ years and they are often called presidents(am talking about Muslims president/dictators)


sorry i read that the shia dogs militia have killed four of his body guards! thats not from the teaching of islam!! any way shia are inventors who invented many bad things which is not from islam and they are dogs to Iran!!

A TV, Games Console and a Laptop is more than enough
