Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 criticized already
Back in May 23rd Activision showed of the first in game trailer for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and of course controversy was not far behind because of May 26th British news show “Sky News” published an article on their website about how Mediawatch UK have criticized 1 particular scene in the in game trailer.
The scene that has raised concern is the scene in which a tube train is shot at and crashes. Director of Mediawatch UK Vivienne Pattison said:
“We have just seen the 7/7 inquests and how devastating the attacks were.”
“It does seem slightly cynical to put it in the game. It potentially shows a poor lapse in taste.”
If people do not know what 7/7 is it is the day a terrorist group detonated several bombs in the London underground and on a London bus.
Vivienne also said when talking to Sky News “I suspect this could be a storm created to sell more copies,” and she also urged parents to not by buy the game (MW3) for their children (kind of makes no sense since it will likely get a mature rating and really parents shouldn’t have to be urged not to by unsuitable content I would have thought that it would be obvious that Mature/18+ games would be unsuitable for children.
