Japanese Online game company Nexon has pressed charges against 3 gamers (aged 17 to 18), for obstruction of business. The gamers have been playing an online first-person shooter called Sudden Attack and they were cheating in the process (naughty, naughty, must punish heavily by waterboarding). Sorry, I drifted there for a second.
Anyway, Nexon says these actions were hurting the game and the accused gamers were using those cheats more than once. This is officially the first time gamers are accused of a crime in Japan for allegedly using cheats, according to one biggest news papers in Japan, Yomiuri Online.
That's odd, and we were talking about cheats in video games only this morning. But to get back to the topic at hand, what sort of punishment would fit such a crime? If indeed you consider it to be a crime that would require sever punishment. Yeah, cheating in multiplayer games sucks ass, but cmon. What are these clowns looking at? Jail time? Toe-tickling? What?
