Whoops. Konami’s dropped Six Day in Fallujah after the completely unexpected heavy criticism levelled at the Iraq War project.
“After seeing the reaction to the videogame in the United States and hearing opinions sent through phone calls and email, we decided several days ago not to sell it,” a Konami rep told Asahi.
“We had intended to convey the reality of the battles to players so that they could feel what it was like to be there.”
That was kind of what got the kids antsy, Mr Konami.
The title was supposed to release for PS3, 360 and PC in 2010. It’s being developed by Atomic Games.
There’s a good opportunity there, Mr Struggling Publisher Looking for Easy Money. It’s certainly got “buzz” behind it.
Thanks, Dark Zero.
