Search for Those Turned to Crime by Video Games?

While it appears there certainly is an ad for this particular, er, subject, the question of how legitimate it is remains.

In one of the more unbelievable media twists to come in the aftermath of last week’s Byron Review, a national newspaper is offering readers 'hundreds of pounds' to confess that games pushed them into a life of crime.

An advert encouraging readers to ‘pitch’ their story to the newspaper has appeared on an 'online talent community’ – which promotes opportunities for aspiring actors and models to raise their profile.


The Byron Review piece discussed above is about a piece in the UK paper The Review that said that Tanya Byron wanted laws changed so that retailers faced a stiffer penalty if selling video games to underage patrons.  She has denied that assertion.
