Iran Bans Battlefield 3

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.

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.
