hypnosec writes: The Chinese government has officially banned Battlefield 4 stating that Electronic Arts has developed a game that not only threatens national security of the country, but is also a form of cultural invasion. The country’s Ministry of Culture has issued a notice banning all material retailed to the game in any form including the game itself, related downloads, demos, patches and even news reports. According to reports on PCGames.com.cn [Chinese language], Battlefield 4 has been characterized as illegal game on the grounds that the game endangers national security and cultural aggression.
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be
lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
