No, that's not what I'm saying.
What I'm saying is that designing games to appeal to the vulnerable - and children are that - is much the same as charging 4000% APR on a "pay day loan" designed to scrape the last vestiges of money away from the poor. It's immoral, unethical, and downright reprehensible.
Yes, the kid is to blame, as is the mother, as (perhaps) is iCompany for allowing a security flaw like that to be possible (assuming mummy is telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, which I doubt), as is the credit card company. But the developers shoulder the main blame for deliberately crafting a game to do just that.

And I thought EA was bad with their DLC model ... Sigh | :sigh:
