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.
