Is Driving a Bus and Playing PSP At the Same Time a Very Good Idea?

For some strange reason, it seems like any time something goes wrong in the gaming industry, the culprit relating to the problem is either Electronic Arts or the Grand Theft Auto series. Well, it looks like once again Grand Theft Auto is the cause of a problem in today’s otherwise perfect society (cough!), though Rockstar Games or Take Two Software is not to blame for this incident involving a man and a bus in England.

No, a man did not steal a bus and go on a murderous rampage (although that would make for an interesting story) and blame Grand Theft Auto for what he did, but instead was big enough of an idiot to play ‘Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories’ on his PSP while on the job. Yes, at times where he was driving the bus and at bus stops and traffic stops. The passengers were made aware of this when they heard screams and gun shots coming from the bus driver’s portable system.

It’s obvious that Steve Allock (the bus driver) is a very dim-lit person mentally if he’s going to be playing Grand Theft Auto while on the job. Its good that this bus driver was fired, as this was a huge safety hazard, but even better news is that no one was hurt during this incident. Now, if only the driver could think of a good way to sue Rockstar for this, because it’s obviously GTA’s fault somehow. Just remember: the game did it, not you, and that’s your ticket to easy money (or an excellent way to attempt to get some quick cash).

Bollocks. GTA did it. I saw them. They are a bunch of satanic murderers, who force-led the poor driver in acting in (typical Rockstar Games) such a typically reckless way.

Great post, by the way...

Ha Ha...this is priceless!! A few weeks ago I was on a night out and upon trying to gain entry to one club, I was suprised to see that the two doormen were just waving people in while playing a wireless FIFA match against each other on two PSPs!!! When I asked one of them whether it was any good, he basically gave me a verbal review of it and excitedly showed me the screen and some skill moves!!
