Call Of Duty is massive terrorist training camp
Oh god no! Our video games are no longer innocent fun machines! They're terrorist training camps! The Sun is claiming that terrorists are turning to 'PlayStation and Xbox games to keep their deadly plans secret.' Dastards!
Apparently, terrorists are using online chat channels on PlayStation and Xbox to plot terrorist attacks. The tabloid says: "Islamic extremists know cops monitor phone calls, emails and online messages, so they are turning to PlayStation and Xbox games to keep their deadly plans secret."
"Gamers can log on in groups to play against each other and - crucially - to chat in private. Once signed in to a 'lobby' using a password, plotters put on Bluetooth headsets and speak securely to conspirators on the same site."
Of course, terrorists aren't playing FIFA 12 or Ratchet & Clank. They like the war ones like Call of Duty, Halo and Medal of Honor. "It's a terrifying reality," a source told The Sun. "These people waste no time finding a secure method of chatting. They are logging into group games over the internet and discussing terror plots. Security people know about it. For millions who love these games this will be a huge shock."
The article even states there is some evidence that "would-be jihadists treat war games as training tools, a bit like a pilot might use a flight simulator".
Once these terrorists master crouching and infinite ammo, we're all absolutely doomed. Remember in the old days when terrorists did little more than eat fruit and ghosts while running around a bleak maze? Halcyon days.
