Activists Call For Rape-Game Boycott

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Anti-violence advocates are taking a stand against a video game in which players stalk and rape a mother and her two daughters.

Amazon and eBay have already banned the sale of the game, called Rapelay.

But New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said Monday that the game is available on other Web sites.

Quinn and the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault called on all video game distributors in the U.S. to refrain from selling Rapelay.

Rapelay is made by a company called Illusion, based in Yokohama, Japan.

The company’s Web site says its products are not available for sale outside of Japan. The company did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
