If you're being bullied by a friend on facebook it's probably best you defriend them

Fair play to Square for realising their mistake and admitting to it!

Hahaha.

Northern and ginger...how f**king unlucky can you get?
Don't wanna talk about the small penis bit though.
We'll leave it there, shall we?

Man the eff up. Do we really want to propagate the idea that gamers are over-sensitive socially awkward ninny's that can't take a joke from a friend? If you seriously consider receiving one of these bullying then you most certainly deserve people calling you a tit.

The app, which has since been pulled, allowed players to send insulting personalised videos to their Facebook friends identifying their "ginger hair", "small penis"

"fishy Ginger" must of been particularly put out about this facebook app
Hey its Martin A , not Martina by the way, cheers

Seriously need to get a new PR company, Enix. First the nuns' outfits that even strippers said they wouldn't wear, and now you're enabling cyber-bullying. What next? DLC where you get to don a Jimmy Saville disguise and see how many kids you can molest in a hospital without being detected?!

Wait....what?

So you can only send these 'virtual hits' to people already on your friends list?
I'm not seeing whats wrong with this as you can just insult the same people by private message.
Does that mean Facebook should pull that feature too?
