Predators using games to lure children
“Child predators are migrating from traditional methods to alternate media. They are going to places where children are.” - Detective Lt. Thomas Kish, Michigan State Police
We often complain about Nintendo and their use of friend codes, but they do have a very good reason. Nintendo wants to protect themselves and their users from anything that could come from possible predators. This is becoming a serious issue in gaming, which attacks recently happening over XBLA. I don’t know that there is a way to stop this, but certainly, more steps need to be taken to better prevent it.
