Oregon's prison system in the US is turning to computer games to help rehabilitate felons. Inmates who have a clean disciplinary record for 18 months are being given a chance to buy a small handheld game console.

The gadget has 50 simple games onboard that can be played through small TVs fixed in cells.

The Oregon state prison system said the gadgets also help to stem some of the trouble incarceration often provokes.
