Sony takes scalpel to SOCOM 3

A few days after Chinese news service Xinhua reported that the government of Bangladesh was irate over the portrayal of its country in the upcoming PlayStation 2 tactical shooter SOCOM 3, Sony has announced it will give in to Bangladeshi demands.

"In a recent prototype, it has come to our attention that one of the game's missions may have offended some communities due to its setting in Bangladesh," said the spokesperson. "The SOCOM franchise has never depicted any government or country as a terrorist operation, and any depiction of independent terrorist groups is purely from a fictional standpoint. Within the storyline of SOCOM 3, there has never been any reference to Bangladesh supporting, or harboring terrorists and/or other criminal activities."

SOCOM 3 should be ready for release this fall, sans Bangladesh settings.
