If you live in Germany and are massive fans of the Gears of War series on the Xbox 360, you will know all about the problems of playing the titles due to the fact that both games in the series so far were banned in Germany.
Well, there has been some good news today with regards to the next title in the series, Gears of War 3. The BPJM who decide if a game or movie is suitable for the German market gave the go-ahead that when released, Gears of War 3 will exactly the same as it North American and U.K counterparts.
What is suprising about this decision from the BPJM though is that Gears of War 3 looks just as gory ( maybe more) as the first two titles. However, the response to why the third entry in the series isn’t going to be banned like Gears of War 1 and 2 were was that there was no “relevance for a ban” with Gears of War 3.
Very strange. Maybe the game isnt as gory as it looks, or maybe they are being more lenient with their decisions? Either way, this is good news for German gamers, as Gears of War 3 will be available for them to play in all its glory when it’s released on September 20th 2011.
