MP Multiplayer: Gamer's Voice Launches


This was an interesting one, in terms of emerging political gamer consciousness - which is a phrase I never thought I'd find myself writing. Prompted by rent-a-outrage MP Keith Vaz - in the words of Mr Wharton who prodded me towards this - "being Keith Vaz" about Modern Warfare 2, relatively-technophile Labour MP Tom Watson founded a facebook group to be unashamedly pro-gamer. As the description says: "Are you sick of UK newspapers and (my fellow) politicians beating up on gaming? So am I. The truth is, UK gamers need their own pressure group. I want to help you start one up." It's just passed six-thousand members. You have to hope an organised central body like this could do a lot of good in terms of combating scaremongering. I've just joined. Perhaps you should too.
