German retailer Galeria Kaufhof has pulled violent games and DVDs from its shelves in the wake of a recent school shooting that left 15 dead.
The store will no longer stock films or games sold with an 18-plus rating at all.
“I think (Kaufhof’s decision) is a complete overreaction … it borders on impulsive hysteria,” said Stephan Reichart, boss of German game developer association, GAME.
“It would be sufficient if retailers made sure their cashiers don’t sell this material to young people.”
