Quite why something like this hasn't been implemented sooner is beyond me, but it seems that Texas' legal system has finally caught up with the modern age and is considering a new bill that requires kiddy fiddlers to register their online game handles. It could even stop them playing games online completely.
HB 22 is currently being written, and will likely include all known avenues of online gameplay, including Xbox Live, PlayStation Home and Second Life. It's quite shocking to think that convicted pervoids are currently allowed anonymous access to these services, but hopefully this will become a properly enforced law.
It's also being suggested that HB 22 could go as far as to completely ban known sexual predators from online games altogether, which would of course be the best thing. The bill currently proposes that dirty bastards be banned from using the Internet to access social networking sites. The intepretation of such a rule could extend to online games, meaning that if you decide to shag a kid, you can kiss your Xbox Live subscription goodbye.
I know if I were a pedo, the threat of not being able to play Killzone 2 anymore would be a crucial deterrent. This could save lives!
