Originally the paper carried the line "Children as young as ten, inspired by video game, were among the looters" in reference to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series.
Change ensued as the London paper came under great pressure from the games media and outraged gamers on Twitter.
Reports yesterday suggested that a police officer and local Enfield resident had both shared their views with the Evening standard, damning the popular video game.
We now have a little more from Game Politics, who report that the London police officer had the following to say:"Kids out of control. When I was young it was all Pacman and board games. Now they’re playing Grand Theft Auto and want to live it for themselves."
So far these are the only reports of people holding the hit video game series to blame for the London riots.
