Battlefield 4 China Ban?

ZDNet reports that Battlefield 4 is being banned in China, though the PCGames.com.cn story cited as the source of this does not seem to exist at this time. A prior report they link is still online, however, reflecting the Chinese military's concerns at how the country is portrayed in the military shooter sequel, as the game's is set in 2020 with unrest in China and possible resulting revolution being integral to the plot. According to ZDNet, the apparently deleted story stated Battlefield 4 "smears China's image" and was a new form of "cultural invasion." Thanks Techie News.

China is such a stupid country

Care to draw some examples?

China and the U.S. are equally stupid when it comes to their governments. The people however of these countries have little say in what their government does.

Nonsense. While the US is hardly perfect, there are a lot of freedoms here that we take for granted that aren't possible there.

They've got their Internet locked down, and even if you want to send a PERSONAL letter to someone in China you have to have customs papers with it.

China is far more corrupt than the US (not saying we're not corrupt by any means btw)

They're a one party government, and the government is far more intrusive on the everyday lives of people there than they are in the US.

The US has more than it's fair share of issues, but yeah, China is a bit sensitive. I think we're used to being criticized because we've been on the top of the hill since WWII, but China does look idiotic when they whine about a video game "smearing it's image"
