Each video game in iran cost between 1 or 2.5$ for PC and Xobx platform and all of them are cracked and ready to use. If you have a better internet connection most of up to date games are avilable on iranian upload centers and you can download them for free because there is no copyright rules!

BF3 banned by goverment for reasons you mentioned in the article but in the black market you can buy it for 8 or 10$ very easily and play it, also still you can downlaod it. and don't forget when some video game or movies and stuff like that getting forbidden by the goverment iranian people getting more curious about them and even guys who aren't fan of video games will try that title. but it is understandable that iranian video gamers for the reasones before mentioned doesn't worth to much for EA they don't pay real fee for video games and they don't use online video game services.

To me, this would be a selling point. Anything that pisses these barbarians off can't be all that bad.

Quit being an ignorant twat. Maybe we should judge the entireity of America on the fucked up government here? The government is not always representative fo the people and a 5,000 signature petition is like nothing relative to the population over there.

Now if only we could get EA banned from the USA. First of all, BF3 sucks ass in a bad way. A month after release and its still in beta and should be called BC3. Second, the fact that there isnt a major outcry over the dtat theft from Origin shows what a bunch of pigly wasetoid moron slaves live in this country.

Can EA even sell legal copies in Iran? I thought they were under pretty severe sanctions.

 

Just read that Iranian police let a bunch of students storm the British embassy... The blatant disregard of the safety of diplomants under international law is worrying.

Maybe they were making up for all of their own citizens they shot for observing the "election" protests.

Like Neda Agha-Soltan; shot in the face in front of her father for the entire world to witness. Just for standing there watching. I feel bad for the good Iranian people. Not having a video game is the very least of their problems.

Hope they liked that virus that set their nuke program back a decade or so.

Considering the large number of people, and quite a few in government actively discussing whether the US should nuke or invade Iran, or both, I can kinda see their point.

Yeah. The US is promoting fear of Iran. They don't bring that shit on themselves at all. Mahmoud Ahmadouchebag, the holocaust denier, talking about how Israel should be wiped away without a trace.

I usually don't have any cause to praise EA. Today I do.

(Nobody hates the good people of Iran. Most loathe the shitty leadership who "reelect" themselves.)

To be fair the formation of the country of Israel was a bad idea from the beginning. Not the idea of giving Jewish people their own nation but the placement. And the country has pretty much fueled tension in the Middle East since it was created. Not to mention the fact that the British told the Palestinians to fuck themselves when they stole their land and gave it away.

I understand what you're saying and wouldn't entirely disagree. It was bad in many ways...but unavoidable.

They had nowhere to go. (That's why pieces of shit like Ahmadinjad deny the holocaust happened.) They weren't wanted anywhere in Europe or Russia. England and Denmark were about the only places where they were welcome. It's unfortunate that the British had to tell some Palestinians to move over but it had to be.

Perhaps if die Endlösung was perpetrated against Arabs they'd have less to cry about than having to share their land once again with historic neighbors. It's all religion. They'd be most welcome if they were Muslim.

If DICE/Electronic Arts threw in a Iran vs Israel campaign in the mix then possibly BF3 would sell like stuffed grape leaves in the old Persian land.  But then that would be "anti-semitic" and Israel would cry.

Israel doesn't cry, they get spooked even a little and kick the crap out of everyone, they're eventually going to drag us into something wicked nasty...

Israel the worst last second kneejerk decision ever made. Lets throw the Jewish people into the middle of the Muslims who have been enemies since the beginning of time. Great idea...
