While their hearts are probably in the right place, unfortunately, their heads aren’t. Two retailers in Norway have decided to stop selling Call of Duty and World of Warcraft titles for the time being, due to those games having been mentioned in the manifesto of Oslo terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.

Breivik, in his manifesto, made claims that Call of Duty was a good game to play for combat training, and that if you claim you have an addiction to World of Warcraft, that time can actually be used for planning terrorism.

Specifically, retailers Coop Norway and Platekompaniet have pulled all versions of World of Warcraft, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Counter-Strike: Source, Homefront, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior.

However, another retailer in Norway, Spaceworld, has refused to participate in the pulling of games in reaction to this event, stating that they have never seen any proof that games encourage such behavior.
