Personally I am not sure what is more surprising, that prisoners have Xbox 360’s and PS3’s to begin with or that the prisoners were allowed to play violent video games with 18 ratings on the consoles. According to Telegraph rules now only allow prisoners with top privileges to play the game consoles.

Even then these prisoners will not be allowed to play games with ratings over 18. Still that will allow prisoners to play some shooting games with lesser ratings. A new directive also says that taxpayer money will no longer be used to buy games or consoles.
The Government announced last year that it had spent a whopping £10,000 on 80 PS3s and 15 Xbox consoles for young offender institutions. The goal was to prevent prisoners from getting depressed from sitting in a cell with nothing to do. Isn’t the point of jail to put criminals in a place where they have nothing to do?
