Case Mod: Jack Thompson's Game Violence Book

We’ve seen a lot of crazy case mods over the years. That means a ton of LED lights, side panel windows, racing stickers and of course, the most recent (and probably the cutest of them all) being Wall•E PC case. Today we stumbled upon a great console mod in the form of Jack Thompson’s book on video game violence, Out of Harm’s Way.

Kotaku this week posts pictures sent in by a user on the halflife2.net fourms. Mattigus bought a copy of Jack Thompson’s book on eBay (which happened to be stolen from a library, by the way), gutted it and crammed in a PS2.

Check out the pictures below, where you’ll see GTA III being played by the Jack Thompson mod.

    That is quite amusing and ironic.

    But I doubt the book was stolen like this article claims. Sometimes a library try to sell books that don't get checked out much which I think its safe to assume about Jack Thompson's book.

    Someone had way to much time on their hands if you ask me.

    Sort of an ironic book to put the Playstation in though. ;)

    Go figure that it was a stolen copy too...

    Old news, but still hilarious none-the-less.

    Now do it with a atom-powered rig.

    Haha, this guy is actually my friend. Yes he had way too much time on his hands. I have only seen him use the thing maybe twice, so its entire purpose was just irony. But at least now he has his 15 minutes of internet fame.

    I say send Thompson a nice "copy" of this "revised" edition. I am certain he would appreciate it. After all I think he was dis-bared so he should have plenty of time on his hands.
