Swedish stores refuse to sell violent video game
A new shooter video game called Hatred is scheduled for release this year, but the trailer has already stirred controversy and several Swedish stores have said they will not sell it.
The third-person game, developed by a Polish company, revolves around a violent plot where the main character enacts a "genocide crusade". It has been rated "Adults Only" by the ESRB, the video game ratings board of the United States and Canada
Angelica Norgren, a gamer enthusiast and host of P3 Spel - a Swedish Radio show about computer games - tells Radio Sweden that it is up to companies to decide whether they want to sell a game or not. "But," she adds, "video games are part of culture and should not be censured".
