I know that one can get extremely excited while gaming, and the entire gameplay, visuals and audio cues add to the overall atmosphere of the gaming experience. Well, it seems that a bunch of noisy students recently had the police and council officials raid their pad, resulting in their Sony PS3, DVD player, as well as surround sound speakers seized. Of course, this was not the first warning they have had from the authorities, taking into consideration how several weeks’ worth of complaints from residents had caused the police and council officials to take action.
The house in question which was raided is located in Fallowfield, south Manchester, and the raid occurred on a Friday afternoon. Neighbors have made their fair share of complaints, where the students did hold gaming sessions at maximum volume even at 4am in the morning, and this happened after they have painted the town red.
According to the council, the raid was conducted because the students had “disregarded” a noise abatement order. A council spokesman mentioned, “Residents should not have to put up with noise until the early hours of the morning.”
All in all, a Sony PS3, five Philips surround speakers, a couple of notebook speakers, a Philips DVD player and a Samsung TV were taken away from the house in Brailsford Road, Fallowfield. It was also tipped that the PS3 was used to play back music, too. Perhaps these dudes ought to own a pair of headphones instead.
