Drug dealing game launched on iPhone [UK]

Drug dealing game launched on iPhone
December 8, 2008 - newslite.tv

A controversial game has been launched for the Apple iPhone where players deal drugs from real-world locations.

Using the GPS in their mobile phones to track their movements, gamers connect with each other trying to buy drugs including cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy at low prices.

They then move around cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham trying to sell them on for a profit, making trades with real people online.

Makers say of the game Underworld (initially called DrugLords) : "You become a drug dealer in the criminal underworld, which exists parallel to your everyday life."

The game is expected to be available from the Apple iTunes store just in time to outrage anti-drugs charities for Christmas.
A spokesperson for game developers a-steroids said: "The idea is simple. Moving between real-world locations, you trade various drugs: buy low and sell high.

"You start as a small-time drug pusher with a goal to be a famous drug baron, make a fortune and dominate the world."

Whats wrong with that?

Is it gonna increase the drugs on our streets?  Nope because of supply and demand we already have almost every drug available for sale everywhere in the UK.
Is it gonna glamorize dealing?  Nope - How can it be glamorized any more than what TV, movies and celebrities have already done?

The only problem I have with this is that it makes drug dealing seem like some kind of joke, which it def isnt. However, grand theft auto makes killing people like a joke, so what is the difference? O wait, thats right, this country prefers mindless violence over vicimless crimes. That aside, did you notice that the drug map is using google maps? Fucking hilarious, I would love to play this game

I had a game like this for my calculator (in high school!) where you went around buying and selling drugs according to prices. Prices would go up with police seizures, and down with over supply, making you a millionaire or in debt. That meant if you had your max carrying amount filled with weed and the cops made a weed seizure, you'd make a lot! It's kind of ironic how that is paralleled with prohibition today...

The only thing I can see wrong with this kind of game is that it could show people how much money (unrealistically) they can make as a drug dealer moving up the chain. Even that is a stretch though. And that... is also due to prohibition!

...if you're actually connecting with real people looking for drugs....it seems more like a real-life drug dealing tool than a game no? hah quite funny though.

I totally played that drug game on my calculator in high school too! That was back before I even started smoking weed. good times..

Do you as a person have to physically move to another location to progress in the game?  Do you really have to go meet other real people to play the game?  This willjust straight up make it to where you can always find anything and the cops can always find the source.  Drug wars rocked,but if you are actually "hooking up with other gamers" , then won't you just make real deals sometimes?
