There is a lot of talk around hacking going on in the USA in the past few months. With some suggesting that there was suspected involvement from external groups in Russia that ended with a President-elect Trump. So much so that the major news outlets talk about it quite frequently. One of those outlets, CNN had a strange idea of how Russian hackers might have accessed US machines… with Fallout 4 terminals.
In a story about alleged Russian activity, the news network showed a familiar sight for Fallout 4 players, a screen from the hacking terminals.
The Fallout 4 terminal can be seen in the CNN video found on the CNN article at around the one minute mark.
This isn’t the first time that news outlets have been fooled by video games. Things like the UNSC from Halo has been shown in military articles on the BBC News and has Arma 2 footage which was shown as if it were real world events were shown by the ITV News.
