Default Dail Mail supporting product placement for MW3

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...b-attacks.html

Quote:
An ultra-violent computer game which features explosions and scenes of destruction on the London Tube and at the Houses of Parliament is to be released later this year.

Supporters of those affected by the 7/7 suicide attacks in July 2005, which killed 52 people, called for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be banned.
The game's trailer, which is described as 'inappropriate' for children, depicts military helicopters, rocket launchers and black-op style soldiers in balaclavas.
Scroll down for trailer

Mimic: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 depicts the derailing and explosion of a Tube carriage - a chilling echo of the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London

Chilling: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 features a Tube train as part of its war games

Loss of life: 52 people were killed in the suicide bombings in London in July 2005

Call Of Duty 3 has not yet received an age certification and shows soldiers running through the streets of London with machine guns while bombs explode and buildings tumble to the ground.

Big Ben is clearly visible as are police cars and a London bus amid the violent scenes.

In one particularly vivid shot, an armed soldier on a truck cuts in front of a Tube carriage, derailing and causing it to explode.

Other scenes show aerial attacks on New York and grenades exploding on the streets of Paris and Berlin.

Devastation: The bus in Tavistock Square, London was destroyed by a terrorist bomb on July 7, 2005 and 13 innocent people were killed
The game, which can be pre-ordered for 45 and will be officially released on November 8, has a voiceover saying: 'It doesn't take the most powerful nations on earth to create the next global conflict, just the will of a single man.'

Vivienne Pattison, spokesman for campaign group Mediawatch UK, said: I have concerns as these games are hyper-real and take place in a landscape we are familiar with. In light of the fact we have just had the 7/7 inquests, it is in incredibly poor taste.'

One reviewer at gaming website kotaku.com described the latest instalment in the Call Of Duty series: 'Players take on the role of an SAS operative who is tasked with stopping a delivery of weapons of mass destruction at a London dockyard.

'A gun battle ensues, and the agents are chased through the London subway. The mission culminates with a series of unmarked trucks exploding in front of the House of Parliament, releasing a deadly chemical agent.'

Activision, who make the game, said: 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a fictional action game aimed at mature adults and set in World War Three. The scenes in the game are entirely fictional and are not intended to recreate any historical events.'
These fucking monkeys make me giggle.

Funniest thing is - there's no bomb, and there's no explosion. And there's no 9/11 style attack, there's a blown up Ruski Helo falling into a building, AND the Freedom Tower is the only standing building aside from the Empire State.

Still, I don't remember too much complaints over the assault on Whiskey Hotel a couple of years ago.

Didn't the Mail develop this game themselves?

So, when is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 4 out?

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no Common Sense.
