German TV Show Apologizes to Gamers For Hurtful Gamescom Report

This morning Kotaku pointed out a video from Germany's RTL Television in which commentators took great delight in mocking what they characterized as the "computer freaks" that they filmed at last week's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Today the show, apparently embarrassed (and likely humbled by fans that were pissed off at their mean-spirited characterizations) is now apologizing for their bad judgment in airing the report.

A translation of the report provided by a Kotaku reader in this story follows:

"And now it is time for a correction of our own account. Maybe you've seen our report about the Gamescom last week. In this report we generealised and exaggerated and if we hurt any feelings we're awfully sorry."

You can watch the video to your left, but you'll need to have the ability to understand German..
