On Medal of Honor's Taliban Controversy

MCV has a story saying a "major news broadcaster" has spiked a story about the upcoming Medal of Honor game after learning that it was based on inaccurate information, as while players will be able to play as Taliban forces, there are no British forces in the game to shoot when playing from that side as one MP claimed. They proceed to point out other inaccurate reports about the military shooter sequel that are floating around, and also report the UK Department for Culture Media and Sport "has declined to endorse fresh calls to ban Medal Of Honor at retail." They also quote a prominent UK retailer saying they still intend to sell the game, though they would honor an official ban if one came down. Finally, Develop quotes EA Games president Frank Gibeau calling the game a "creative risk," and saying it would not be altered based on the outcry of politicians and media groups.

I was thinking Activision may have planted the story to make Medal of Honor look bad. There wasn't much going against CoD MW2 last year when they did the play as a russian terrorist story thing, this time around it looks a bit more malicious and considering how much activision has to lose if Medal of Honor sucks any dollars away it could be them.

Maybe I'm mistaken and this is helping get the game noticed? Doesn't seem to be doing this in my opinion but maybe it's a good thing?

I mean, I know people hate Activision(heck I'm one of them) but that's just silly dude MW2 sold the majority of what it will sell a long time ago.
