PSX-Sense writes "We came across a promotional poster for a new Iraqi TV-show which reminded us of a upcoming first person shooter. It's very obvious that this is all influenced by the Battlefield 3 promotional images"
Blatant ripoff. EA should sue!
They'll get 2 camels in the settlement...
OMG you sir are very fucking funny. 2 camels HAHAHA what a great comedian you are. /s
Do you think that the entire Middle East are living with camels? You're wrong, so be careful what you write next time, I am from Iraq and dont allow shit like this
The heads in that poster belongs to main characters from a Turkish TV show called Valley Of The Wolves. It's obviously a stupid fanmade poster. Don't worry about it.
@armorki- A lot of Americans including myself have a dark sense of humor. Don't take it seriously.
I'm also from Iraq and unlike the common saying that the dog is a mans best friend, here in Iraq it's a camel instead, I love my fluffy
that would be nice but I'm pretty sure there are very few camels in turkey. The article title is wrong, this takes place in turkey. 3 boxes of turkish delights should do.
Are you sure you are from Iraq armorki, because the show is in turkey. How about you read the article next time before you flex the might of your, oh so powerful Iraqi anger. You sure about that turgore? Did you bother to do a ten second search to confirm that claim. I doubt you did. http://www.allaboutturkey.c... http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w... And Rdgneoz3... Your joke is even funnier because turkey has plenty of camels and camel cigarettes even have Turkish tobacco in them. Turkey's ancient cultural sport is wait for it...... camel wrestling. Seriously! So you sir get an lol and a +bubble.
@SITH He said very few. Just because Turkey once had tons of camels doesn't mean we still live in sand and have camels everywhere. Copy/pasting crap from Wikipedia won't make you a professor. Calm down and stop spewing that stereotype stuff.
armorki - We wasted billions of dollars baby sitting your pile of dirt. Get over it. You guys should have handled Saddam yourselves but we had to do it for you. Your Welcome.
Wow! Jeseth what a typical insulting, douchey, American response.
Sadly you are all projecting your own prejudice into his comment. He could of just as easily been talking about 2 cigarettes.
armorki , whatcha gonna do if he writes more?
Exactly. If armorki doesn't like it, press the ignore button and move on.
this :D http://www.youtube.com/watc...
middle east at its best. everything the west makes they turn around and make a love story about it (but never sex before marriage) [email protected] 2 camels......
wtf? why do you care? why do you randomly troll about stuff?
This is almost as bad as the Uncharted clone (Unearthed) LOL xD Agree or Disagree if you Agree
Ripoff? That is straight photoshoped heads on the original BC2 cover.
It is literally the same assets from the original BC3 picture.
This isn't a Iraqi tv show but a Turkish TV show by the name of Kurtlar Vadisi. You know that show that caused a lot of stir in America: Valley of the Wolves. The Arabs are in love with that TV series but the hype is already over in Turkey.
Here's a image from the first episode http://i1236.photobucket.co...
This x1000. Hell, the guy on the tank wouldn't even be able to fit in the damn thing he's so big!
It's not influenced by it's a complete blatant copy. All they did was crop it so it's zoomed in more and photoshop a guy on the tank and faces on the two soldiers...
Way to go Iraq. Once again, you're pissing off the US!
By ripping off the work of an EU studio?
Aren't DICE and Battlefield owned by EA? I'm sure they would be upset if other companies started ripping off BF.
@ MidnytRain: Yes, but Dice itself is based in Sweden.
Yes, I know Dice isn't US but EA is. And that's who I was referring to. Because like Lick120 said, it would probably be EA suing the those Iraqi insurgents ;)
DICE are Swedish. Thank you for acknowledging the existence of my country.
Yeah, but EA is American. I doubt DICE would handle any copywrite / legal matters too. I think EA would be the ones sicing their lawyers on people. Over this however, not so much. Also, I made my way up to the DICE floor in their building when I was in Stockholm. They have such a ridiculously awesome office.
its turkish not from iraq u ignorant buffoon read the article
Lol READ THE TITLE DICKFACE.
Are you incapable of reading past the (incorrect and lazy) title? I would surely hope you read the actual article before commenting. Someone who commented after just reading the title would be an example of a rather obtuse individual. Only the most supreme morons get 0 Agree, 33 Disagree.. and counting.
Only supreme morons like me post things for the purpose of saying something which they know will get tons of disagrees, but they don't care because they find what they said funny. Simply put, I make slightly controversial and slightly ignorant comments towards A-rabs for the immature satisfaction for pissing someone off. Shame on me. Well, I'm sorry I commented on an article that pretty much speaks for itself without needing to be read! Getting all anal about which country this is in doesn't matter to 99.9% of us who aren't in the middle east....turkey, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, whatever! They're still Arab countries who no one cares about. Edit: Man you're so intelligent, obtuse, lol. Try using that word around a female and see how easy it'll be for you to get laid buddy.
its a copy .
This is a Turkish TV show not Iraqi. Do your research before posting. On topic: This is not a ripoff. IT IS THEFT FOR GOD'S SAKE O_O
Watch it...don't want to start another war You know what people will be like, "Video Games are to Blame", that would be sil-.....oh wait it really would be video games fault this time.
Wow, they weren't even trying to be subtle with their copying.
1. It looks cool! 2. Who hasn't photo shopped themselves into a video game box art? 3. If they are using it for promotion then yeah EA may have a problem with it But Turkish and Iraqi copyright laws may be TOTALLY different from the U.S. so there may be nothing they can do! 4. The mere fact that Iraqi's are enjoying something very similar to what Gamers all around the word enjoy is very heart warming seeing how the Iraqi's have been enduring 2 decades of war and are now FREE to enjoy some innocent photo shop work. P.S. Iraqi's do not ride camels...They drive mostly Benzes, BMW's, Range Rovers, Saabs, Fiats and Toyota trucks. so all the camel jokes are really stupid especially from a bunch of people who have never been there. Operation Northern Watch-Operation Southern Watch so yeah I've been there!
"2. Who hasn't photo shopped themselves into a video game box art?" Kran says Hi. :)
"Who hasn't photo shopped themselves into a video game box art?" Are you serious? SITH says, hello.
SITH and KRAN obviously do not know how to use Photo shop! dam computer illiterates! j/k
I don't need to superimpose my image on boxart in order to raise my self-esteem. You obviously do. Do what ever brings you comfort.
you people making this as a big thing , it's just a photo , why do you care even if they use it to sell something , the people who made this are idiots , they copy things from others so they are not talented or anything , relax guys...it's not like you get money from EA or Dice..
Kinda how china ripped off TF2 and Valve couldn't do anything.
Its shocking how far they're off when it comes to proportions. I mean, dude at the front - head too big. guy on the tank - far too big for the tank and his head is too big. the guy at the far right has the biggest head of them all.
I like how subtle it is...
i'm from iraq, but i still think this shit is funny ! haha come on don't take it hard
me too im from iraq. and whats funny is my bosses name is murad too. but they spelled it in there as morad. you still say it the same though :)
lol, not even a good photoshop job of the heads
lol at the people who didn't read the article. It takes place in turkey.
Who truely cares?
I'm guessing they're fans of battlefield
Looks like!? It is Bad Company 2! They just replaced the heads.
lmao its same body diff head... crazy
Turkey is not Iraq.
To the uneducated Western world it is
ya thats true. but many of the show are from turky and they are dubbed in arabic. my parents watch this show believe it or not.
this is extremely lame. I's obviously the same thing from BF3...but i think it just fan made and not really from Iraqi.
*Bad Company 2 actually
Someone didn't attend their Geography classes
I smell a law suit,if DICE doesnt there crazy!!
looking at the comments lol im just just sad sometimes to be american
Iraq, I mean Turkey, needs Photoshop artists. Badly.
They watch tv in Iraq? I'm only kidding. Of course they don't. They're too busy being killed by people who shouldn't be in their country.
lmfao, this world never seize to amaze me. That poster gave me a very good laugh.
Not all middle eastern countries are called Iraq. The article clearly says the show is from Turkey. Idiots.
