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.

What a load of shit.
They want to sell copies of a game so badly that they're digging into recent events?
Holy christ. On top of this they're mis-repping the whole shebang, eh?
Nice! It's good to see the games industry is really taking it to a new level of quality. That's really important.

I don't care if it's really recent, but the fact is there is no excuse for mis representing these events.

Anybody being left out from the conflict is both an insult to the discluded as well as to the included.

This is one of the few times I say a developer should be governmentally slapped for bad development process.
