Are you over the age of 18 and still enjoy innocent entertainment like Animal Crossing? Better hide your Wii and DS, then.
ABC17 news has revived that fear of Nintendo consoles by calling the Wii a tool for predators. More specifically, pedophiles can (apparently) use Animal Crossing: City Folk to reach your children. At least, that's what the Mid-Missouri Internet Crimes Task Force is saying.
Andy Anderson, a cop working with the Task Force, named Animal Crossing in a statement to the media, saying that any adult who possesses this game and similar titles is likely playing them for unsavory reasons.
"There is no reason an adult should have this game," Anderson declared. He also added there is no reason to be paranoid, but to be aware.
According to the news report, three Missouri children "have been contacted" by perverts so far.
