    No fun in China?

    I wonder if any Unreal's made the list?

    BEIJING, Jan. 26 (Xinhuanet) -- China has banned 50 illegal electronic games in a recent government probe into the electronic publication and software market.

    As part of the effort to protect intellectual property rights and create a good environment for Chinese youth, the State GeneralAdministration of Press and Publication (SGAPP) together with the anti-porn and illegal publication offices, created a list of 50 illegal electronic games in a nationwide check-up on electronic publication and software markets.

    Liu Binjie, deputy director of the administration and director of the state anti-porn office said here Wednesday that the Chinesegovernment in 2005 will focus on combating illegal publications. This especially concerns pirated textbooks, electronic publications and illegal journals that will have negative influence on the youth.

    Among the 50 illegal games, 26 are pirated game software including Age of Mythology: the Titans, The Sims 2, Manhunt, FIFA 2005, Battlefield Vietnam and Painkiller: Battle out of Hell. The remaining are illegally distributed foreign games including Conflict Vietnam, Vietcong: Fist Alpha and Devastation.

    The administration has called for relevant departments across the country to clean up the electronic publication and software markets, confiscate any of the 50 games if found and hold the publishers, producers and distributors of these games accountable.

    China, which first launched a campaign against pornographic andillegal publications in 1989, has been carrying it out for 16 years. Enditem

    Wasn't there a thread about this in Community Chat?

    UT probably got banned. Hell, they banned FIFA 2005. The evil maniacal soccer (football to you Euros ) regime must be stopped, of course.

        I'm curious how exactly they plan to hold publishers and producers accountable. Their ban doesn't exactly matter to a company in the USA after all, other than it being one less place that they can sell it to... :-X

              It looks to me that in this case, banning means making illegal. However, they kept referring to these games as illegal already, so um... they made them MORE illegal?

                This coming from the place where you can walk down a street and find every CD or DVD you ever wanted for less the 50 cents a copy.

                  I can understand why the shooters with alot of realistic blood and monsters like PK: Battle out of hell, but why a football game? Is penetrating a ball insulting to kids?

                    Just so you guys don't misunderstand this one. They aren't banning some of these games totally, they are banning the production and selling of illegal copies which is rampant in china. Those games don't have a chinese producer so should not be sold in China at all.

                        Jesus, why not just not allow to sell kids the M rated games?
                        Even though it won´t work very well, it´s the best they can do.

                          People aren't very good at reading...

                          They're doing a crackdown on PIRATED copies, not the titles themselves.

                          READ you fools...

                            COMPREHEND you moron....

                            And now read....very slowly to give your inferior mind ample time to process the one and two syllable words:

                            "Among the 50 illegal games, 26 are pirated game software including Age of Mythology: the Titans, The Sims 2, Manhunt, FIFA 2005, Battlefield Vietnam and Painkiller: Battle out of Hell.

                            Now in words more on your intellectual level....

                            50 ILLEGAL GAMES. MEANING GAMES = ILLEGAL. SINCE GAMES = ILLEGAL, THEY GOT TO CHINA VIA PIRATED COPIES, BUT ARE OTHERWISE *STILL* ILLEGAL, EVEN IF THEY ARE ORIGINAL PRESSINGS OMGZKTHXBYE.

                              I'll bet that everyone in this thread going against the ban have pirated copies and that they are just trying to make epic and atari lose more money...this is a good thing the govenment's doing. Finally intellectual rights will be respected...

                              and for the ones not pirated, they are not licensed to be sold in some countries, and so if a store in China is selling those games, it is illegal.
