Obama: Videogames are ‘pressuring the country’

Posted By | On 10th, May. 2010 Under News

In a speech to college graduate students, President Barack Obama has made clear his opinion on consoles and videogames.

“With iPods and iPads; Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation,” Obama said.

“All of this is not only putting new pressures on you. It is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy,” Obama said.

Déjà vu anyone?
