Pakistani government bans the sale of Call of Duty and Medal of Honor games
Recent shooters Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 came under fire from the Pakistani government recently. Some game merchants complained that the games portray their country in a poor light, and the government has put a ban on the purchase or sale of the games.
The All Pakistan CD, DVD, Audio Cassette Traders and Manufacturers Association (APCDACTM) said,
Scenes in both games show Pakistan as a hotbed for terrorist activity, and the government feels they could turn the nation's gamers against the country. The original article points out, however, that there's a huge amount of pirating in the entire region, so if gamers want to play it, they'll play it.
If only someone could tell them that Warfighter sucks. C'est la vie.
