Riley Munoz writes "Hey Slashdot,
Once again the herald of anti-gaming, Jack Thompson, points his misguided finger towards another big fish in the gaming industry, Microsoft. With a scornful letter forwarded to Game Almighty today, Thompson thrashes on the recently released Halo 3 Beta and puts blame on Bill Gates, again, if this "hyper violent" video game lands in hands of any minor.
"Here's the deal, Mr. Gates: Either Microsoft undertakes dramatic, real steps, through its marketing, wholesale, and retail operations to assure that Halo 3 is not sold, via the Internet and in stores, directly to anyone under 17, or I shall proceed to make sure that Microsoft is held to that standard by appropriate legal means. I have done that before successfully as to Best Buy, and I shall do so again as to Microsoft and all retailers of Halo 3."
Thanks for any links!
