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.

And the few that start political unrests get political re-education in camps as soon as they raise their heads. China is very much in control of everything, that's a lesson they learned from the Tianamen Revolt. React as soon as possible and as ruthless as possible to prevent another Tianamen incident.
Not really. You need to go spend some time at one of their universities to see exactly how much control they have. Hell the last time they tried to wipe out a fishing village, they had to back down after the international media got wind of it. And that was after trying to starve the 10k or so people out by cutting off all supplies in or out.

They have control, just not as much control as you might think. Not even among the peasant class(aka dirt farmers).
