Better Read Than Dead
Posted on Tuesday, March 20 @ 22:01:12 Eastern by Duke_FerrisCrazy as it sounds, we just found out that Game Revolution is banned in China. I'm not sure what we did to offend - we only sent back the won ton soup because it really was cold, you know.
On the other hand, we are proud to join a very long list of banned sites, like Google, CNN and donkeyporn.com, as the Chinese government tries to control all internet access. If you want to see if your favorite site is banned, just check out this cool new site, The Great Firewall of China.
Of course, Chinese game developers (mostly making new MMORPG's) contact us all the time to try and get coverage. I wonder how they found us in the first place?
I contacted the Chinese government to find out exactly why we are blocked, and was pleased to get this rapid, personal response from Premier Wen Jiabao himself. Ah well, can't get much clearer that that.
