United Arab Emirates retail chain Geekay Games updated its Facebook page today with sad, if unsurprising news:
Unfortunate news, L.A. Noire has been banned. Sorry guys
Bummer. The UAE’s National Media Council (NMC) did not reveal why it banned the game and so far, Rockstar has not commented on the situation.
Speculation has it that The Witcher 2 and Duke Nukem Forever will be the next titles to receive a wallop from the NMC banhammer.
