What does this mean to you, PlayStation fans?

whoa, good to see the PS Blog and Sony are doing something didn't expect that

This is BS i hope gaming wins

UNCyrus3274d ago

This is like the fourth blog post about it. PlayStation has been supporting the fight since before the legislation got passed in California.

Agree Nitro

I'm pretty impressed by what PS Blog is doing, not only that but explaining some history of it. I didn't even know comic books went through the same thing in the 1950's.

Playing the role of a violent man with prop guns pretending to shoot people is more realistically simulated than gaming ever was.

In fact when we were kids, we always used to buy toy guns and shoot each other. We still do it today with airsoft guns.

It all started before we ever touched video games.

Kids thousands of years ago used to play with toy swords and play fight each other.

Someone could actually get hurt in those kind of things, while people will NEVER get hurt in a videogame.

Sony will alway be the light at the end of the tunnel for gamers, them and wow.

Schwarzenegger v. EMA/ Entertainment Software Association.

I think that it is very plausible and obvious that Mr. Schwarzenegger has or "might have" interest in another entertainment industry.

Video games hurting your royalties Mr. Schwarzenegger?

Everyone should read this transcript. Basically it shows the Supreme Court absolutely tearing apart the legislation and refuting every last bit of anti-gaming argument.

It's glorious.

kulex473274d ago

I can't believe I read that whole transcript, it's amazing they really did tear them a new one. That law is never going to be constitutionally passed, it just can't be (limited by our language) and as a society their is no "problem" with children playing violent games, so it's just more tree huggers at work again...

And this could affect World wide gamers, because a fraction of games comes from US.

There is no way this will pass, it's unconstitutional and just plain unnecessary. If you take the fun out of the virtual world, then people will be forced to bring it to the physical world.

gamingdroid3274d ago

Never say never! The government isn't exactly the brightest bunch....

Close_Second3274d ago

Just what is your definition of "fun"!?!

Red_Phoenix3273d ago

In terms of video games, I would say everything is fun, from racing to shooting. Now people like you and I, I believe, have enough common sense to keep racing on the race tracks and shooting at the gun range, but there exist people who have become addicted to the virtual world and if you take away their racing or shooting experience, then they might be provoked to bring it to the real world carelessly and bring harm to real people.

I love how the TERMINATOR!!!! is trying to put heavy restrictions on violence. So ironic

kagon013274d ago (Edited 3274d ago )

Yup, he wants to exterminate our hobby...

Edit: Hasta la vista baby!

Longrod_Von_Hugendon3274d ago

"Edit: Hasta la vista baby!"

XD cheesy!

WetN00dle693274d ago

Its quite funny really ESPECIALLY when that fool starred in many violent movies! Hope the fool bites his tongue for being a hypocrite!

Close_Second3274d ago

...yet crappy movies. He had 3 or 4 good flicks and the rest should have been released straight to video.

Maybe he should be campaigning against crap movies.

This Joystiq piece is pretty funny:

Looks like the Justices are going to do what is right and strike this insane proposed legislation down.
