If you feel like cranking up your speakers and playing your favorite PS3 shoot-em-up game, you best be prepared to get jacked by the po-po. Gamepolitics (http://www.gamepolitics.com/2009/01/13/swat-team-takes-down-pair-ps3-gamers) has a report that this exact scenario went down in Denmark.

A concerned neighbor called the local gendarmes in the belief that the sound of gunfire coming from next door was the real deal. Perhaps thinking that a full-scale war had broken out, a Danish SWAT team was activated. The cops used a megaphone to order the men to come out and surrender.

The noisy gamers wisely put their controllers down without a fight and were arrested on suspicion of mayhem. They were soon released after a search of their apartment uncovered no firearms.

Whoopsie Daisy.

Well it actually took place in Denmark, not Sweden. Close though.

Lol, yes, well played.

The whole thing reminds me of Home Alone: "Keep the change you filthy animal!"

I wonder if anyone has done a study to see if video games make the police departments violent?

So far we have fucked up one lawyer, and a bunch of politicians. But, they haven't yet turned violent. So, there is room for improvement.

They apparently make people who don't play them stupid, offensive, judgemental and irrational, which is just as bad.
So, our options are this: play them and become a homicidal maniac or don't play them and become a frothing douchetard.

Either way, we're boned.

You're looking for "Cue". I think the word you tried to use was queue (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&rlz=1C1GGLS_enUS291US303&pwst=1&defl=en&q=define:queue&sa=X&oi=glossary_definition&ct=title).
