EA Responds To ESRB's Rating Of Battlefield 3


EA has responded to the ESRB's rating of DICE's upcoming wartime-shooter Battlefield 3, where the rating service stated that you will be able to "shoot police" in the game.

Speaking to Eurogamer about the whole thing, the company stated;
“I don’t think you understand the gravity of the situation. For God’s sake, there is a nuke in Paris! Millions of lives are at stake!!”
While EA may be mocking the ESRB or everyone in general for even thinking about getting upset over the shooting of police officers in a video game, I'm not so sure I get the joke.

EA's Patrick Bach, said a couple of months ago in an interview,
“If you put the player in front of a choice where they can do good things or bad things, they will do bad things, go dark side – because people think it’s cool to be naughty, they won’t be caught."

“In a game where it’s more authentic, when you have a gun in your hand and a child in front of you what would happen? Well the player would probably shoot that child.”
We'll just wait here until Fox News gets ahold of this and goes completely ape shit.

Battlefield 3 is out later this month for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
