No, I think this one tries to blame video games for Jews, Blacks and Gays because video games make people so violent it broken Space/Time and caused a hideous mutation to occur resulting in 'those' types of people.
It's the Daily Mail. It doesn't have to make sense. Or be true.
They used a plastic gun (could've been the zapper or one of the other similar plastic guns out there) and did so exclusively while playing the shoot the target mini-game included in RE4 Wii Edition. Where they didn't had to worry about moving about or dodging enemies. But just had to shoot at some targets.
Like I said before, using the zapper when playing RE4 is a hassle (but not impossible). And yet the research team wanted to prove that using a gun device while playing videogames can somehow turn you into a killer. So that's why they went out of their way to use a plastic gun with RE4 Wii Edition.
I hope that makes things a bit clear for you.
ok, think about this...
it does feel retarded, as in not right, go and try it.
and they were probably playing umbrella chronicles not 4 and someone screwed up somewhere, seeing how news reports are notorious for being inaccurate.
kind of hard to believe a research group would play the one without the zapper on the back of the case even though most wont play it that way...

Again... The research team wanted to make the point that using a plastic gun with "violent" videogames can somehow make people better at killing - they will always go for headshots. That's the logic that the Daily Mail went with. Thus why they posted that inflammatory headline.
And using a plastic gun was essential in driving that point home. That's why they went about using one with RE4 Wii Edition. The fact that they used it on a game that wasn't designed to be played with a plastic gun, should give you a hint of what their agenda/motivation really was.
