ECA’s Hal Halpin Talks GTA IV, Growing Influence of Games on CBS News

Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) president Hal Halpin appeared on the CBS Evening News last night during tech reporter Daniel Sieberg’s segment on the Grand Theft Auto IV launch.

Hal spoke about how games are becoming as influential as movies in terms of entertainment.

And while it doesn’t appear on this video, did anyone notice the snotty aside which Katie Couric directed toward GTA IV?

As Sieberg wrapped up the GTA IV segment he said: “Of course, that’s assuming you’ll want to spend more time with characters… like these…” As Couric came back on camera she dropped an acid, “No thanks.”

GP: Thanks to GamePolitics reader Mark of Cain for YouTube’ing the video of Hal’s appearance!
