Sony Gives in to Bangladesh
After receiving harsh words from the Bangladeshi government, and a lawsuit threat, SCEA has announced that they will no longer include references to the country in the final version of SOCOM 3. They recognize that it, “may have offended some communities”, and will no longer use the references in the game.
“The SOCOM franchise has never depicted any government or country as a terrorist operation, and any depiction of independent terrorist groups is purely from a fictional standpoint. Within the storyline of SOCOM 3, there has never been any reference to Bangladesh supporting, or harboring terrorists and/or other criminal activities,” said a spokesperson.
