Pulling Flight Simulator Off The Shelves

from the over-reacting dept

Retailers throughout the UK are apparently pulling Microsoft Flight Simulator off their shelf. This seems silly, and a huge over reaction. There are so many reasons why this is so completely pointless I won’t even get into listing them. How long until some idiot sues Microsoft for the game as well?

bad taste

One of the news programmes on TV over here in the UK ran a segment showing how realistic flight simulation software is. The point was that the idiots who hijacked the planes could have honed their flying skills using this kind of game on a PC.

All a valid point, but we really could have done without the reporter doing a demonstration flight of flying into a WTC tower. Very, very bad taste indeed.

That said, pulling this kind of software from store shelves does seem a bit of an over-reaction.
