EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK "Censorship"

GamesIndustry.biz quotes EA executive VP and GM of international publishing Gerhard Florin, who does not conceal his frustration in a conversation with German website SPIEGEL ONLINE over the German rating system that is exceptionally strict about video game violence. Florin calls the system "censorship" and demands Germany drop its USK system in favor of the Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) system used elsewhere. They also offer a counter-point from USK head Marek Brunner, who points out other regulations influence this situation, including German criminal law, and that the there are "no plans" to adopt the PEGI system.

Mashiki Amiketo,

Apparently still in college or kissing intellectual ass to please the professor. Whatever the reasons, a thief is a thief because he stole an item -- motivation doesn't matter; who cares if he had a bad child-hood, lived in a depression, or if he was a drug addict. Germany started a war by invading a soveriegn nation -- simple. As to why things happen, sure we can go on about that, however excuses or reasoning aside, the action lead to a reaction -- invasion caused a war.
