    Source.

    If this is true, this is rather stupid, it's a game after all.

    you obviously didn't read the

    "MotorStorm: Apocalypse is an upcoming racing game"
    and
    "features buildings falling down all around you. In the wake of a devastating earthquake in the city of Christchurch, that's apparently resulted in the game no longer being released in New Zealand."

    Delaying the release sounds perfectly acceptable given the circumstances. I would say it was more about public relations than political correctness.

    People are just looking for something to bitch at, because all humans are unhappy unless they're bitching at something.

    Jesus, really?

    That's it. I'm working on a time machine to go back to the days of the SNES/Genesis/PS1/N64 where games just came out and didn't get so much hate.

    People need to take some fucking steroids because it seems everybody is a pussy these days.

    That's the first time I've heard of a video game being cancelled due to a natural disaster... I get that the earthquake in New Zealand was devastating, but how does a video game featuring falling buildings have anything in relation to the tragic events of the earthquake? They might as well stop selling movies like 2012, hell even Inception, in New Zealand because of this.

    Wow, I'm surprised Bulletstorm didn't get banned in middle Eastern countries for it's name.

    It's always been this way. Either you were too young to realise during that era, or just weren't able to have a global view (Which now everybody has access to thanks to the Internet).

    I am so glad people on this forum don't have any power to make decisions like this in real life
