I think Activision don't want to incite anything..

These extremists are insane, you don't wan't to mess with them because they tend to kill people.. Like the 14 year old girl Malala Yousafzai recently shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in Pakistan.

They are not normal people, There is seriously something wrong with them.

BF 2 too

AFAIK this is not about one or a country problem, this is found by one of players and maybe a big fans of COD, and maybe they contact the activison and they ask activison whether could they remove that words.

but you know since the mw release , the story begin in somewhere middle east and I believe that's in muslim country, but no complain about that, BF 3 too... but because in this case there is name of God, maybe some fans feel little bit annoyed.. just maybe, anyway this is just a game buddy, we must know why activision do that and share each other what is the possible reason for that.

ahh yeah in my country, one of the biggest muslim country if may I say .. actually the government and the people don't really care about this issues, because this is not very essential problem :) and perhaps they don't really know at all :D

there is no news about it on our national television, instead I've found it in local game forum. but notting really big reaction about it.

In all, I'm really appreciate the move from activision, they were really care with their fans.

For Service members being interviewed the news has to go through Public Relations Department of the Military.
Probably saved them loads of criticism and PR nightmares.
The only PR general media has however is common sense. Apparently, these days it's worse than AMD's back in Bulldozer days.

Still hot as hell though.

Some people apparently found it offensive that Allah was mentioned in a picture frame located in the level's bathroom.

^This doesn't happen by accident.

I just know they wouldn't give two shakes of a dogs tail if a Christian made the same video. But since now the threat of violence by a few of an over all peaceful religion can now intimidate the masses we have this. I wonder when the line will be drawn.

I don't hold anything against Muslims at all. But this "be politically correct or die" mantra the few extremists have needs to go. I personally would have left the texture in. Truly faithful Muslims that are confident in their religion will not care. I can bet money on this. The rest will be pissed off about something, be it this or something else. Who cares. Also Activision just went down another notch IMO.
Excellent argument~:toast:

How ironic, a problem with a few not unkindly words in a scene within a bathroom, but no mention of the fact that many of these games are based on killing estranged middle eastern folk lofl?

All these different groups....now that I think about it, are a lot like how gangs are in the US. It's just a gang in a different country, different set of rules, different religions, etc., etc...

Humanity and common sense need not apply.

I find it hilarious that in this game that is several years old they instantly fix something that "offends" a particular religious group, but fail to fix game-breaking bugs years after release...

Normally a news thread wouldn't be closed, but these aren't normal circumstances. While the news article itself is sufficiently objective, I don't have faith in parts of the community's ability to have a civilized, to-the-point debate on this particular topic.
