GTAIV ads pulled in Chicago

Let the media circus begin! GTAIV hasn’t even been released yet and it’s already being called at least partially responsible for the shooting deaths of six people. Our totally unbiased *sarcasm* friends over at Fox news in Chicago reported that this weekend was “especially violent” for Chicago. And apparently, it’s appropriate to blame Grand Theft Auto IV ads on the the side of CTA buses and platforms.

Remember the story Fox news covered on Mass Effect’s “graphic sex scenes” which featured “full digital nudity?” That story was by and large a direct slam on the video game industry based on faulty information gathering. Looks like they’re at it again. Fair and balanced indeed.
