Subject: Eidos Cleared In Columbine

Eidos has been cleared as a defendant in the Columbine lawsuit where some parents are attempting to sue a number of game publishers (as they blame video games on the recent high-school shootout) for $5 billion dollars. Here's the scoop:

The five billion dollar lawsuit against several of the largest game makers has taken yet another turn. Judge Lewis Babcock, a chief Colorado judge has ruled that Eidos is exempt from the lawsuit since Final Fantasy 7, which was published for the PC by Eidos and developed by Square, does not feature guns prominently within the context of the game.

Families of the victims of the Columbine school shootings, blame in part the violent video games that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold played for the shooting death of 13 people in 1999.
Games don't kill people, people kill people.
