Warning: PSP ads can kill you
We thought we'd seen just about every dire warning about the dangers of gaming, but it turns out there's a new one. Sony has had its PSP posters yanked from Manchester train stations amid fears that the ads could encourage passengers to jump onto the tracks and be hit by oncoming trains. The poster in question reads "Take A Running Jump Here," and officials were concerned that riders would take the advice literally. Somehow, we'd like to think that train passengers are a little smarter than that, but you never know. After all, New York subway riders have been known to engage in bizarre antics ranging from sucking tokens out of turnstiles to daring to confront the big guy sitting with his legs sprawled across two seats (which may actually be more dangerous than following Sony's dubious advice).
