The Daily Star has publicly apologised to Rockstar Games for publishing a news story alleging them of having plans to develop and publish a Grand Theft Auto game based on killer Raoul Moat, paying the firm a 'substantial amount in damages'.
What sick beeper would come up with that? And what editor in their right mind would approve that! It's just as bad as making a game where your Ian Huntley or Harald Shipman for god sake, you guys at the Daily Star are sick in the head! @psymon: I hope a lot of people are, they won't be though.
well hopefully the journalist who published this outrageous story is now unemployed.
Knowing the Star, they'll have appointed him new director of Parliamentary affairs. They're a bunch of semi-literate f*ckwit hacks.
lol What is Daily Star?
Daily Star is a UK daily newspaper, very well known and sell very well in UK.
Isn't it funny how Rockstars the people behind baby murder sims or at least that's what the media wants you to believe are actually good guys and not thugs? I mean yeah sure we play violent video games, the same way people watch violent films because we for the most part can differentiate between reality and code. Gamers are no different, no more anti-social, no more stupid, just we choose to have fun by team working and problem solving than making up articles. Well done Rockstar and about time... American newspapers>British ones American news channels<British ones Or at least that's how I see it.
I wouldn't call the Daily Star a newspaper... ;D
Uh... We have plenty of great papers. Just the Daily Star is not one of them.
I hope they fired the asshole who wrote that story.
Idiots. This is the same type of news media who said that Mass Effect was a sex simulator and stole the video footage of the game from IGN. I can't believe people can still be so idiotic and hostile towards video games to the point where their jobs are on the line just so they can get a juicy story out of false information. Information no one bothered to check up on. If they did their jobs right this wouldn't have happened. Grand Theft Auto Rothbury. I cannot find the words to express what I am feeling. A facepalm will suffice.
i never even heard about this story :/
The only real compensation for this is to have the knuckle dragging cretin who wrote the story sacked and donating his redundancy money to a worthy cause. Idiots like him should not be allowed a platform, unless it's a chair beneath a noose. An apology from him for his comments about the gaming community would be a good idea.
Not only do the star pay damages, but at the same time they make rockstar look even better by rockstar saying they will give the damage money to charity!! love it!
That's right Bend over, and kiss it hahahaha, daily star, what tools.
Who ever owns Daily Star is a f****'n C*n*! btw I like how R* doesn't want those bastards money! :P
Atrocious story. But i'd still play it. So would you.
DAy 1 lol
Good, because it was retarded.
never buying that shit
I cant believe they actually published this shit without checking a source. They even went to a berieved family for a quote. Here the actual clip
