Sniper: POV pulled from Wal-Mart stores near DC

On Friday, copies of Xicat's first-person shooter were pulled from Wal-Mart stores in the Washington DC area out of sensitivity for the ongoing sniper attacks there.


Wal-Mart has decided to remove Xicat's Sniper: Path of Vengeance from stores in the Washington DC area, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The decision was made in response to the ongoing series of attacks by an unidentified sniper that has resulted in the death of nine people since October 2. A Wal-Mart representative said that the game was pulled out of local sensitivity to the subject matter, and that the move doesn't reflect any link between the recent shootings and the game, which was released at the end of September.



WOW. There were sniper attacks on Wal-Mart? I thought they were taking it off the shelves because it was so bad! xD
