    Modern Warfare 2 map temporarily taken down after controversy over Islamic imagery

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4M6JI...layer_embedded
    The "Favela" map has been temporarily removed from Modern Warfare 2 following the discovery of, and complaints about, items found in the map that are potentially offensive to Muslim gamers.

    The protest video above details the offensive item: a frame containing a quote from Mohammed, hanging above a toilet – "a disrespectful place" as YouTube user "KhaleDQ84EveR" puts it. In response to the discovery of this image, Activision is planning to remove the image from both Modern Warfare 2 and 3 via separate title updates, the publisher told Kotaku.



    eric catman plan is working next the Russians well want the whole Modern Warfare game be offline

    So this is not ok? But it's cool if people burn the American flag, stomp on it and such and americans are supposed to not take offense to that? Right...grow up kid. Oh and he disabled comments for his video. Wonder why...

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Great, now they can take away something that I paid for? Stupid stupid reason to take it down. If you don't like the frame above the toilet, don't play that map, don't play that game, or don't look at it. SMFH

    This is Bull$hit! I and other people love this map. Okay, infinity ward, if you can take our maps then we'll take some our money back when we want to.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I'm surprised the map designers didn't see this coming when they made the map. They can just remove the picture and it should be good no?

    The thing is, religion transcends nations. Every fps shooter blows the crap outta middle eastern countries and everyone plays that happily. Lets just murder ten thousand Afghani/Iraqi/pakistani and its okay but when religion gets involved people are more than likely to react

    Even worse than the picture is all the american's that are killed in Call of Duty, in the billions. American's are not complaining about that.

    My thoughts exactly. Why in the fuck should I care if the game offends someone else. If they don't like it, don't play it, stop screwing up everything for the rest of us!
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Fairly convenient time for the Call of Duty brand to be hitting the headlines, just a month before release of their next game. Don't you think?

    I wouldn't say that. I don't really care for any religion but so many places were built on religion. I couldn't imagine where certain groups would be without it.

    A lot further ahead with fewer people dying because they don't believe in fighting for various myths.

    This guy in the video shares my views on religion...


    Anyway. I think they should've kept it in the game. Freedom of speech and all. Why does it seem like the whole world is scared of the Muslim population. Whenever they say jump the world says how high.

    That's what I was trying to say. You can kill people wiany nationality and people will be okay with it but when religion gets involved its a whole new story.

    This is what happens when people actively search for something to complain about.

    So they can legally take out a map I paid for? Regardless or not if its 'temporarily', sounds beast mode to me.
