Bayolenteng eSports game out sa Olympics
Inihayag ni International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach na ang mga video game na nagpapakita ng “violence” ay hindi papayagan matapos na nagkakaisang bumoto ang mga miyembro nito para sa magandang relasyon sa virtual eSport at gaming communities.
“We have a clear red line that we do not want to deal with any game which is contrary to the Olympic values,” sabi ni Bach.
“Any game where violence is glorified or accepted, where you have any kind of discrimination they have nothing to do with the Olympic values. This is not about revenue generation, this is about engagement. Our main motivation is to look for ways how we can convince the people playing these games to do the real thing.”
Pinamunuan ni FIFA President Gianni Infantino ang grup na nag-obserba sa computer games at inihayag sa sesyon sa recorded speech na, “we can only imagine the possibilities for these games but we must recognise the importance of moving quickly and highlighting this opportunity.” (Lito Oredo)
