Iran Bans Battlefield 3

Posted on Tuesday, November 29 @ 07:39:18 Eastern by


In no surprise, Iran has banned Battlefield 3 from its store due to its depiction of US forces launching an assult on Tehran, though Electronic Arts has no resellers in Iran in the first place. This what-if situation in the video game is, of course, fictitious.

But a Fars news agency reports that a group of "Iranian youths" are not satisfied and has prompted an online protest against the title with 5,000 signatures thus far:

We understand that the story of a videogame is hypothetical ... (but) we believe the game is purposely released at a time when the US is pushing the international community into fearing Iran.

The Iranian police has reportedly gone as far as raiding some shops and arresting owners for selling pirated versions of Battlefield 3. Well, what about all the other games that have been pirated? I guess little or nothing at all.
