    Should what’s banned in the UAE really be considered News?

    You might as well say it’s banned in Myanmar and North Korea too.

    This would have been banned for its nudity i assume, banned for the same reason as HR; Mafia 2 has bewbs in it!

    So please give me the rights to pirate this…. Because I’m not going to import THIS from another country. (I’ve imported God Of War III and Heavy Rain and I’ll import DA2 too, but not Mafia)
    I wish I could live somewhere else….

    We had the same stupid situation for GTA IV and RDR as well.
    But you don’t really need to “import” them. They all can be found around.

    If this game gets banned in UAE; this means it will be banned in Saudi Arabia automatically.

    Reason: adult scenes/pics aren’t allowed in Muslim countries. Although it is nothing in many Muslim countries. As PsychoPCG said, you can find those banned games easily but expensive a bit.

    Source: I’m Muslim – from Saudi Arabia.

    I make fun of the way Swedish people talk too. That hardly means I think they’re an inferior race.

    @12, HA! That was awesome.

    That said, being that seemingly every Islamic country in the wold is in a race to see who can ban Blackberry first, news like this comes as no surprise.

    My question is this, Do Muslims not like having the right to choose what they see and here for themselves? What gives?

    #18 5 years ago
  19. Michael O’Connor

    @18 Based on the comments in this thread so far, it’s pretty obvious that those outdated laws are very easy to get around.

    I’m sure nobody likes it, but what can you really do about it? It’s easier to just circumvent the system.

    Its obvious that most Islamic countries never really moved past the 13th Century, i mean Homosexuality is punishable by death that sums it up really.

    It’s funny how some of you comment about “EVERY Islamic country” like you’ve lived in all of them and know every little detail.
    It’s not about the country and its people, it’s about the ruling system of the country.
    The way you judge Islamic countries is like considering Americans and their stupid government at the same level.

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Michael O’Connor

    @23 Thank you.

    It’s not the people that are outdated. It’s the ruling government.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. DSB

    @25 That’s true and false.

    My family lived in Saudi Arabia for 4 years, and some things were arguably very primitive. Like not being allowed to point a camera at villagers because they thought it would take their souls. Or families tying an iron ball around the leg of their mentally handicapped son, so he wouldn’t stray very far from the village.

    There are even places in Turkey where they paint all doors and windows blue to ward off curses. I’ve seen it myself.

    The real story, at least the one I got, is that you can get along with all those people as long as you look beyond those differences. Most people generally want to move ahead and make things better.

    This is a horribly lame conversation to have on a site like this though.

    REMOVED DUE TO OFFENSIVE CONTENT.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. Crysis

    From my perspective, the Arabic laws such as the ones in Saudi Arabia are dead wrong, being sexist & racist, humans are all equal & law should not dictate otherwise & many punishments are barbaric & don’t fit the crime, not attempting to offend anyone, but these are just my views, then again i do not know much about this situation in these Arabic countries, but from what i’ve heard they’re being run by ignorant politics, who care only for themselves.
    Without proper & fair leadership, terrorist groups will continue to expand

    #28 5 years ago
  29. Michael O’Connor

    @26 There’s always going to be exceptions to the rule, and people stuck in the old ways.

    My point is that they’re not the majority, and I think once this generation starts becoming the prominent one, a lot of that stuff will slowly begin to disappear.

    Like you said, most people want to move ahead.

    #29 5 years ago
  30. DSB

    @31 I wasn’t making an argument beyond cooperation being possible in spite of differences. My experience with people from those areas does point to a lot of superstition and fairly primitive thinking.

    I’ve been friends with somalis who seriously believed in witchcraft and pakistanis, who spent hundreds of dollars obsessively calling a soothsaying service in Pakistan, like it was the most sensible thing in the world. That’s arguably a far cry from anyone else I know.

    There’s a big difference between growing up in an enlightened humanist society and an authoritarian theocracy, a feudal warring society or an oppressive dictatorship. That’s just fact.

    On the other hand I’ve spoken to a lot of underground metalheads in Iran through a friend, who all thought pretty much the same way I did.

    #30 5 years ago
  31. PsychoPCG

    @26 This is a ridicules argument.
    These so called “people/villagers” can be found anywhere.
    It has nothing to do with being Islamic or any other religion out there.
    We’re talking about the majority of people, not some people far from any civilized place.

    #31 5 years ago
  32. The Hindle

    There is no arabic laws, its called Shia Law and its not the governments that enforce it, its the Qoran and there are muslims in the United Kingdom, France all over the world that follow this 13th century law.

  33. Amir Mirzaee

    @25 I can’t call what those countries have Government. They’re rapist. People are not outdated, it’s the politicians. People want to living in today’s world, but the government won’t let them.

    @30 Why?

  36. PsychoPCG

    @32 The Sharia law is not enforced to those Muslims living outside Islamic countries.
    He can find Mafia 2 in every gaming store in his country and decide if he wants to see the inappropriate content in it or not.
    So that’s kind of different in comparison.

    So this thread is now about bashing Islam…

    @8 G1GAHURTZ:

    Walikum alslam :)
    I have no idea. But in general, laptop prices are high in SA. If you gonna buy one, don’t do it in SA.

    Most people buy a PS3 for online gaming, and the same people buy a 360 for offline gaming (pirated games).
    For online games, you should get region 2, cause that region is for middle-east countries.

    @19: you’re sure…but I like Islamic laws, if people don’t like it they won’t keep it, I guess.

    You do realise if you ignore someone’s post on the internet, they tend to shut up about the thing you’re bothered about, right? Because they have nothing to respond to.

    #44 5 years ago
  45. Amir Mirzaee

    @42 Hating Arabs and loving Hitler are racist? (And that’s totally because you’re an Arab yourself. I’m sure if I take out that Arab thing and left loving of Hitler there, then you don’t have anything to say.)
    By the way, I didn’t want to offend you. Sorry for that. I didn’t know that I was offending people.

    Just grow up a bit and try to respect people.

    Don’t you just love those conversations where a guy comes out of nowhere and is like “Hey, I love Hitler, he’s my idol. Racism is awesome”.

    @61 I wasn’t talking about Islamic laws at all. I wasn’t even judging it. I don’t see how it’s my business how anyone runs their country. I’m just saying those societies work in a profoundly different way.

    I thought the British people were pretty annoying when I was there.

    I got on a bus, and the busdriver was like “Owight?” (Alright?) and I was like “Alright what? What are you getting at?” and he was like “Are yew owight?” (Are you alright?) and I was like “Well yeah, why wouldn’t I be? Am I limping or what?” And the guy was like “It’s a common greetin’ mate” and I was just like “Dude, you guys are retarded”.

    I thought only the Irish were supposed to throw riddles at you for no particular reason.

    @77:

    lol! That’s a coincidence, because most of us find the Americans to be pretty annoying when they’re over here too…

    Especially the way you guys feel the need to TALK REALLY LOUD JUST SO THAT EVERYONE AROUND KNOWS THAT YOU’RE AMERICAN.

    @77 No, the Irish tend to talk with proper English. Our problem is that most of our accents are so goddamn thick that it’s impossible to understand what we’re saying anyway.

  96. G1GAHURTZ

    Sorry Crysis, but I have to say that I hate the Australian accent. I find it unnecessarily nasal.

    My personal fave is (southern) Georgian English. No idea why, but it’s easy on my ears.

    #96 5 years ago
  97. Kuwabara

    proper australian accent can be sexy, it’s rare. im autralian, but the english here is pretty broken, like the british. only americans pronounce their words correctly. for example, the word propper, americans will pronounce the er at the end, while australians will say propa.

    #97 5 years ago
  98. Robster1979

    “only americans pronounce their words correctly.”

    WTF – The whole of the US pronounce words correctly? New Yorkers? Texans? Nah.

    #98 5 years ago
  99. Crysis

    our accents differ by states aswell tho, Sydney folk will pronounce tomato, tmoayto while us South Aussies will pronounce it tomarto & those from Sydney generally sound like they have a blocked nose, while us South Aussies speak with a generally deeper tone.
    Also, we do often say, G’day, Mate & cheers, but i HATE how the Americans’ make us sound.
    Listen to Hugh Jackman & that’s how we generally speak, though you can feintly hear the blocked nose nasaly sound from him

    I’ve replied saying I can do what I like and said man is a bigot.

    @ OG: Thanks man. It’s the Internet, innit, so you won’t get rid of me that easily. Hehe…

    @ Pat: LOL! He’s you shouldn’t have even bothered replying, Pat. He probably sends the same email to every place he gets banned from…

    Dishonoured his ancestors!? lol! Maybe he thinks they wanted to leave some comments too…
