Do the guys play video games?

I thought I read somewhere that they did. My oldest son plays on Xbox Live all the time (Halo 3, what else?) and it made me wonder if they were ever on there.

I know it's mentioned in U2 By U2 that they all got addicted to Space Invaders when they toured America for the first time in 1980. I think they said they'd stop at a truck stop, eat a quick meal, and then waste the rest of the time with the arcade machines

It seems likely that they've all spent time gaming, though I dunno if any of them has had the time or inclination to be hardcore gamers. I could certainly see Edge playing nerdy Zelda or Final Fantasy type games though

Bono said he was playing a video game when he heard John Lennon had been murdered.

I'm a big fan of Final Fantasy games (I'm playing XII these days...) so... Edge could come to my house to play anytime...

I remember reading a cool story a couple of years ago about a techie guy travelling on tour with U2. He had to fix a PC or something for Bono and ended up playing a video game with him which he said was an awesome experience Can't remember what the game was or who won but I think he said Bono was pretty good.

I remember reading a story about a video game the guys had invested in, or one of their companies invested in, and Adam making a comment after playing it. For the life of me though I can't remember what it was.

I think you mean the Mercenairies game series by Pandemic Studios.

I stand corrected if it is the GTAgames though

I think that's it. Also didn't they invest in Eidos Studios that makes the Tomb Raider series?

I'm certain that I've read that Bono has an Xbox somewhere, which is not unlikely since he and Bill Gates are quite close friends. (I think? )

According to the Achtoons Larry is very fond of GTA Vice City.

Larry, Edge and Bono all have sons and daughters, so it's very probable that they've taken a few minutes to play video games with their children. Sometimes it's a nice way for parents and children to connect.

(My Dad: "It's moving too fast!! My old eyes aren't fast enough to play these...")

Edge just can't master Guitar Hero

Bono tries the American Idol Karaoke Game but can't remember the words
