Correction: Jack Thompson Wanted Best Buy to Not Sell M-Rated Games To Kids

We recently reported that violent video game critic Jack Thompson asked Best Buy in October to not sell M-rated games. He actually wants them to not sell them to kids, asserting that "Some of these 'Mature' games, in addition to containing adult levels of violence, also contain sexual, pornographic material, so much so in fact that each sale of one these video games to minors constitutes a separate and distinct criminal act by Best Buy in violation of state and federal "sexual material harmful to minors" statutes. Minnesota has such a statute."


Apologies for our mistake.

We've reached out to Best Buy to see what they made of Thompson's request.
