HardwarePal : China after 13 years finally had their console ban lifted, their was a blast in sales of both video games and game consoles. Its very odd that consoles are mass produced there but were banned due to some cultural and parental reasons.
China will ban western air current if they could.
They may be popular in banning things, but this game is directly saying China is the enemy of the entire World, it's pretty fucked up, it's all pretty insane and I was just waiting for this to happen. China is not our enemy in reality at all as mainstream media portrays, neither are they that bad as a whole and their ways are quite exaggerated. There are millions of people just like us that live over there trying to make good changes just like we are here. When I say people like we, and they, I mean the people, not the Government.. including ours as in U.S people, not the Government because they are not doing a single damn thing right for us other than profiting from control and war. Not a discussion, just how it is period, unfortunately. However things are changing for the good :)
So what? Most of the Call of Duty games are saying that Russia is a big enemy. But Russia didn't ban it.
Well of course they make it seem like they are an enemy of the world. Call of Duty does the same thing, hell all army type shooters do it. It is just to make the story seem interesting which it usually isn't anyway, it isn't like people around the world think that China is bad because a "video game" makes it seem that way
China wasnt really the enemy. It was that General. As soon as they realized that the President was alive the stopped fighting.
Agreed!! Im glad you let that out!
Did you actually play the game? Because China wasn't portrayed as the enemy of the entire world. God I hate people who take things out of context like you do.
China banned it because it portrayed the authority of the government as unstable, which China really doesn't like.
Actually, more games won't be banned. Now that China is opening up to video games, companies will want to take advantage of that market. So they will go out of their way to develop a game that China "approves" of. This same kind of shit is happening with Hollywood movies. Movies shown in China cant be critical of China (among other things), and since China is such a huge market, the big Hollywood studios are essentially selling out to China to make sure their movies meet China's approval. I expect the big greedy game publishers to follow suit
why are ppl so up in arms if china banned BF4? ppl in america could not even handle having a group named taliban in medal of honor. LOL
Or six days in Fallujah. http://youtu.be/D_ULc9YtWmM
A name being changed in a game...do tell how that's anything like banning a game. They VOLUNTARILY changed the name because of some voiced concerns; a little more democratic than a game being banned. And six days in Fallujah wasn't banned, it didn't get a publisher. Anything to find the "hypocrisy" in America, even where it doesn't exist. A minority being unhappy about something isn't anywhere in the same league as no one in the entire country getting the chance to play it because their country banned it.
I still love that series.
How about you also lump in the people of Europe AND Canada as they couldn't handle that Taliban/Medal of Honor thing either. Former Defence Secretary Liam Fox mentioned it was an "un-British" game to plays as them and wanted to ban it, yet there were NO British forces present in it; they were all US forces. And why does SilentNegotiator get all these disagrees when what he said was true? When it's a minority in the USA, all Americans are crying and are stupid. When it's any other country, oh no, that's only a few people and we're still right. Nice to see what the general attitude on this site is, "If they're American, I hate' em".
Would love if more games had me invading America.
You can always make one..
Hey, i'll give it a shot in 2-5 years. I'm not that good of a programmer....yet
While at it let's make the good guy eastern European.
There's a few like that, but they'll likely get you on the NSA's watch-list.
Well I guess if they made it so HomeFront 2 you can be the invaders that would be cool but the game would be banned in like 15 min
Yea why can't there be any games of Canada invading some place?? Lol I wanna see my country doing something in these war games! Lol
Because Canada never does anything war wise lmao
America invaded Canada in the Fallout universe lol....
Well in the "other people's" history of WW2 as opposed to the American version the Canadians and British did most of the real fighting on D-Day in 1944.
Than we hear about the guy who made the game "insert name here" where you invade America gets kidnapped by the U.S Gov. for suggesting terrorism
I guess games is the closest any country would ever get to doing it! Lol....bring it!!
Too bad it will never happen in real life since America is so well armed. You may take over the Northern states but when you hit the south your done for we have guns everywhere 10 guns to each person so good luck with that.
chinesse will prob come up with a pirate version that works better then the real game
It's kinda silly to ban a game in your country when it was never released or never planned for a release there in any official form. Shine on, you crazy bastards.
The good thing about China is that you can walk the streets or go into a park at night & not get mugged or shot. As for banning BF 4. If they had Chinese troops saving the world I'm sure their government would approve of the game. ; )
Dictatorships are always safer because you have no freedom and the government watches your every move. Crime is lower also in these states you get executed for stealing do you really think anyone will have the balls to commit a real crime. It's easy to get rid of crime when the punishment for every crime is 20 years in jail or execution.
Sadam Hussains regime was a dictatorship run by criminals. Taliban regimes run by criminals. China is now imprisoning corrupt officials, while the west does absolutely nothing with regards to government & banking sector corruption. Makes you wonder about your point. Me, I like to know that when I'm in china on holiday I'm pretty safe. ; )
You still have to do what your are told, agree with the government 100 percent and if you decent in anyway they crush you. Any country that demands that U.S companies help them to keep lying to their people by helping them censor the internet isnt worth saving. I can tell Obama to his face on national TV that hes a idiot and i wont go to jail. In china i may never get out if i dared say such thing on a national forum. My grandmother always said if you dont lie you dont have to worry about the truth coming out. U.s companies have no soul if a country asked me to lie for them i would have told them to keep their damn money people like Google just dont care and are cowards.
I say good. Look at the comments on any gaming site. The reason gamers are now nothing but hateful assholes is because of these games being the mainstream of gaming. All you people want to do is watch ppl die or pretend to do it yourself and spew nothing but hate while you do it. Here's to hoping the next gen will focus more on fun and adventure and games where you just yell and kill ppl become few and far between.
"all you wanna do is see people die" He says with a dead human (zombie) that has just eaten another human as his avatar... SLOW CLAP.
He also calls out "you gamers". He's clearly not a gamer, but a troll (hypocritical at that)
WE BAN YOUR TWERKING FROM OUR SHORES!!!!
the game should be banned everywhere till they fix the netcode :P
They won't fix the netcode if u keep buying
True Talk people still buying this game even they know it has Problem @Rockefellow Patriotism brings people to Ignorance ;)
I never had a problem with PS4 version, but I got it 4 days ago.
Some of the people slandering America in the comments here disgust me. I understand foreign resentment on a whole and can sympathize with it, but I'm willing to bet most of the people badmouthing the U.S. are a bunch of ignorant, puerile teenagers who don't appreciate the country they live in. I wish any ungrateful smartasses who can't see past their own self-interests would get a taste of their own medicine and find out how bad life could really be in other parts of the world-- and that goes for ANY country they live in that they take for granted, from Canada to the U.K.
Wow... wake up. You're conditioned beyond belief. I live here in the U.S and I know better because I educated myself. I suggest you do the same. I kindly point you towards the above comments where I've explained as well as others. Thanks
Oh STFU, you named crap as to reasons America is bad. Example: deception, selling hard drugs, money as priority, Religious & Racism distractions, As if that doesn't happen anywhere is else in the world you moron. An those were just four of the moronic reasons you gave. I mean just by reading your pretentious dribble I can tell you're nothing short of a retard.
Keep spouting off the slogans and ideologies Pwnmachine. Don't act like you're different from the other political side, because you are the exact same. You're part of the problem as to why we're going to sh** and why things are staying that way. Keep feeding your ego, keep reading the rules and regulations on how to act about everything, destroy any free will you have and surrender your rights, remain ignorant to the horrors that other countries have committed, keep it up because no one respects your weakness.
@MrSwankSinatra @ChipChipperson None the wiser, both of you. Read up. Swank, do not confuse "pretentious dribble" with being Honest; You have no idea whats going on in your own Country, but not a single word I said EVER excluded any of the other Countries either. Don't assume, or put words in my mouth, it's discrediting. Assumptions is also literally all I read from you Chip, yet different ones, it's pretty disappointing.. like a sheep. Chip, I think we are similar/awake and you misunderstood what I was saying. I'm not sure how you took this negatively: "There are millions of people just like us that live over there trying to make good changes just like we are here." That is an honest fact, a positive and true message about great people being all over the world making a difference in this new age of information and evolving positive consciousness. This is why the majority of people agreed with me above. You basically turned that message inside out with your own blind assumptions, ultimately distracting a few people from a good message. Not a single thought, or word I've typed has anything to do with me reading rules, or regulations, I'm 100% against many laws and regulations, quite frankly, what you said is borderline insane as it is the complete opposite of my portrayal. Also, I'm polar opposites from "political parties" I'm an independent individual and do not hold biasedness, or a title towards any politics, or groups, and I refuse to be part of any left wing, or right wing parties as they only serve as distractions from our real problems like Governments, Cabals, and Military Complex, I am me. A good start towards positive outlooks is for Countries to stop pointing at each other (news etc.), or using them in movies/games as enemies. You realize that the entire game of BF4 is based on killing Chinese people in WAR right? Regardless of their message, there isn't possibly any good moral values in this. Even if it has to do with overcoming the Government because in reality this isn't how fixing things is going to be done, or should ever be done. You can't create peace with Death/War, there are far better ways, these are not ideologies, these are truths. Don't ever put me on the same level as politics, or anti-progression ever again, it's disgusting. Your assumptions are your biggest flaw right now, it makes these arguments easy.
Battlefield 4 is a threat to China, but Battlefield 2 was not?
So much butthurt up there
They can play Homefront instead as Koreans invading the US
I'm waiting for the class action lawsuit from zombies for CoD. These are video games FFS! If China believes Americans playing Conquest and capture the flag as a threat, their military is in more shambles than I thought.
It's all ridiculous. If you remember, the Venezuelan Government claimed Mercenaries 2 was preparing Americans for a real life invasion of Venezuela and overthrow Hugo Chavez. The guy is dead... looks like it never happened.
Not to mention Venezuela has been imploding on its own thanks to Chavez and his successor, Maduro.
The article failed to say that BF4 isn't even sold in China. I hate a bunch of hype over something that isn't worthy of hype. Please make some more something out of nothing.
...isn't it all the more bizarre that China banned a game that the creators had no intention to bring to China?
They need to make a game where americas are the enemy and let see that one get off the drawing board.
Sections within the Call of Duty plotline, Spec Ops The Line, the Metal Gear series, Army of Two series, Fallout, yeah, there haven't been games made where Americans or an American has been the enemy.
You need to play more video games if you think they don't exist.
Funny you kill americans 50% of the time in mp with a vast majority of the games but i guess that doesn't count.
I want to play a game where America (maybe throw some European powers in also) has corrupt power and decides to take over the world and China and Russia have to stop them. Maybe do it during Cold War era because Soviet Russia is more interesting and America was a huge superpower. Now that would be an awesome game or does a game like that exist and just went unnoticed. Could be a good game or maybe a game where the actual chosen successor to Lenin became the leader instead of Stalin leading to some crazy alternate world. War games have so much potential IMO but devs usually have to make a game that is in trend and usually add no depth just explosions.
Who gives a flying f*ck what China thinks or bans? Whining pussies.
i cant read things like this without laughing... i mean im german... and we all know how that goes in games... and i dont take it seriously get over yourselves its a god damn game WHO CARES!
Lol fair enough, more Chinese players on PlanetSide 2 (which IS available in China :D) and btw, a far superior game imo
