Battlefield 4 Is A Threat To China - More Games Will Be Banned In The Future

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. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

China will ban western air current if they could.
Pwnmachine  +   242d ago
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.

TrueJerseyDevil  +   242d ago
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
Crimsonwilson  +   242d ago
China wasnt really the enemy. It was that General. As soon as they realized that the President was alive the stopped fighting.
hazardman  +   242d ago
Agreed!! Im glad you let that out!
Sarcasm  +   242d ago
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.
CaptCalvin  +   242d ago
China banned it because it portrayed the authority of the government as unstable, which China really doesn't like.
Wenis  +   242d ago
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
Majin-vegeta  +   243d ago
Or six days in Fallujah. http://youtu.be/D_ULc9YtWmM
SilentNegotiator  +   243d ago
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.

ChipChipperson  +   242d ago
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".

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.

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.

awi5951  +   242d ago
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.

awi5951  +   242d ago
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.

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.

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.
Pwnmachine  +   239d ago
@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.

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.
