Pakistan Bans CoD: Black Ops 2 and MoH: Warfighter

Games Produced 'Against the Country'

Both the Call of Duty and Medal of Honor game franchises have never been titles that commented on the events they display. You are the good guy, the others are the bad guys and bad guys have to be killed. A simple black and white world that now crossed borders with Pakistani officials. There, both Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter were now banned. Several sellers complained about the picture that these games paint of Pakistan and the organization responsible for the distribution of digital media in the Middle East took a look at them - and banned them. Their statement reads:

"The Association has always boycotted these types of films and games. These (games) have been developed against the country's national unity and sanctity. The games ("Medal of Honor: Warfighter" and "Call of Duty: Black Ops II") have been developed against Pakistan, and the association has completely banned their sale. Shopkeepers are warned and will be responsible for the consequences if found purchasing or selling these games."

Saleem Memon, director of the "All Pakistan CD, DVD, Audio Cassette Traders and Manufacturers Association" (in short: APCDACTM) commented:

"These games are an effort to malign the minds of youth against Pakistan."

Apart from the fact that these games have been sold for quite some time now and that the vast majority of interested gamers already has them, it remains to be seen whether these bans do have a significant effect on the number of gamers or if it simply decreases revenue for the local sellers.
