UK Bans Adult Video Games from Its Prisons

prisonservicelogo.gifLife behind bars just got a little tougher -- adult prisoners in England and Wales are being banned by the Prison Service from playing computer games rated 18. (This is the UK version of "Adult.")

Good behavior will allow offenders to play other games. However, eligible inmates would have to buy consoles themselves as the new rules ban prisons from buying games or consoles. Last year the government spent $20,000 or so on 80 PlayStations and 15 Xboxes for young offender institutions.

All this from the BBC.

Guess they will have to spend more time in the yard ...
