Philadelphia Inquirer chastises Infinity Ward over night vision goggles


The Philadelphia Inquirer has chastised Infinity Ward for the functional night vision goggles included with Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition.

According to the piece, some people would not be responsible users of such equipment.

"I would say 99.9999 percent of gamers who buy the Prestige edition will have a blast with these new goggles, innocently playing around at night with them.

"Yet, it is also like giving away a free race car with Gran Turismo or Forza - someone is going to cause a highway wreck. In Modern Warfare 2's case, I shudder (just a bit) to think of someone, who may have a hard time with reality anyway, donning these goggles for real mischief or even worse.

"Infinity Ward should know better. They are great at fake realism. One of the best. This maybe be crossing that line, however."
