One has to wonder if this is going to have any effect on the games industry. Clearly the AP thought they could stir up something controversial by asking the IP owner for a statement:
Microsoft, which owns the intellectual property for the game, declined to comment beyond a statement saying: "We are aware of the situation and it is a tragic case."
I suppose the good news is they did not accept his insanity plea, so no one can claim that Halo 3 drove him insane. Even so, I don't think anything good can come out of this for gamers."
