” Age Restrictions: Must be 13 years or older to enter ”

Err…The game is rated 18…

Shouldn’t that be “Must be 18 years or older to enter or even play the game in the first place”

I don’t think young kids playing games makes them violent or anything but when people go around claiming the ratings are meaningless, let’s not make it too easy for them to find evidence…..¬_¬

I also was briefly excited until I read US only – I’d still like to participate even if I can’t win anything (could the clan perhaps accept a foreign members prize and say…forward it to them…wink, wink, nudge, nudge)…

“Helghast suits are wearable. They’re created by a Hollywood special effects studio.” So, should I expect a Killzone movie in the near future? Woooooohooooo!

Meh it’s to hard to schedule match-ups with all team-mates involved plus I could care less about life-size helghast suits but I would like to know more about the Tshirts and DLC.

+ ajpfeif on April 28th, 2009 at 4:27 pm said:

Question:
Everyone keeps saying: WHAT? 13+
The game is rated M
Is it illegal for a kid to play a Mature game?
I’m pretty sure the only thing they cant do is buy it…
Correct me if I’m wrong

You guys DO know that Sony ALLOWS people 17 and under to play the game, right? It’s up to PARENTS whether kids are allowed playing the games.

And in the EULA it says that you agree that you are 17 or older, OR ARE ACCEPTING IT FOR YOUR MINOR WHO IS UNDER 17.

The only thing I find wrong with that, is that some real immature kids go on and play and just act like a total… Immature Kid!

Only those kids shouldn’t be allowed to play online…

PS. Only in US… Wow… Guess I should expect it from now on… :|

Will the games be hosted on a private server so their is no chance of lag? If their is a good connection and a team just like it, I could definitely prove as an asset.

Such a shame that Sony still hasn’t got their act together to include Canadians in these type of tournaments. Our contest laws really aren’t all that complex (especially when it comes to skill contests).

… maybe they want to spend a few bucks and buy a better legal department – honestly, you overpay the people you have if they can’t figure something this simple out.

(though another cheaper alternative is to offer a concurrent tournament for Canadians only).

Oh wait… we don’t exist. That’s right. Everytime y’all post a blog about video updates to the PSN store I laugh because it’s not in “my” PSN store. Apparently Sony is too cheap to spring for the words “U.S.” before Playstation store when doing the weekly movie/TV show updates. I totally forgot that Sony only recognizes “United States” as the entirely of the Americas.

I like that the tournament rules state:

“Age Restrictions: Must be 13 years or older to enter”

Despite the game being M-rated. Gotta love the world we live in, folks…

Hahah You got them TuxBobble. This tournament thing for real prizes is what I’ve been waitin for ever since this whole online phenomenon happened. I remember back in the day, lots of companies brought up online tournaments as one of the many features that they would be providin in their games. This is it. This is the [DELETED]. Thank you so much. How bout money prizes huh? That new videogame gambling website made it legal, or found the loop hole. Yah could do that. Keep up the good work. Also, have yah read most of the comments bout your pricing for the dlc? Yah should really reconsider it. Its too much.

Sure wish there were a way for us “NORMAL” folks to nab such cool items. Having a 3-year-old doesn’t lend itself well to practicing and committing to a team, let alone being good on my own accord.

*sigh*
