THQ, Gaia Online, NCsoft and Funcom join Operation Game Over

Thursday, 20th December 2012 01:17 GMT By Brenna Hillier

THQ, Gaia Online, NCsoft and Funcom have joined Operation Game Over, with the result that over 2,100 online game accounts linked to registered sex offenders have been wiped. GamesIndustry reports the new additions to the initiative join Microsoft, Apple, Blizzard, EA, Disney, Warner Bros. and Sony, who collectively erased more than 3,500 accounts in an earlier purge. Operation Game Over is an extension of New York’s Electronic Securing and Targeting of Online Predators Act, which requires known offenders to register their online ID details, offering community hosts the opportunity to ban them. The program is intended to assist in protecting minors from sexual predators.

    Hmm, I’m not sure how that will help the minors. What they are doing is shielding them from possible threats. This way minors won’t know what hit them when those sex offenders will make their move on the street. These people should not have their accounts erased, they should be tortured until they die live on national television. Make examples out of them you know.
