CT Town Conducts "Buyback" for Violent Video Games

Trade in your old stuff, buy new stuff


Southington, Connecticut is seeking to collect and destroy violent games. A new initiative called the Violent Video Games Return Program is offering citizens a $25 gift certificate in exchange for their violent games. According to Polygon, the collected games will then be "snapped, tossed into a town dumpster and likely later incinerated." The event is organized by the SouthingtonSOS, which includes members of "the Chamber of Commerce, YMCA, board of education, fire department, town officials, United Way and local clergy." Violent movies and music will also be accepted.
