D3 â€œBig Pineappleâ€
I found an interesting article on PC World about China doing their censorship thing again on Blizzards latest Diablo 3 game.
Apparently when translated in Chinese, the phrase â€œBig Pineappleâ€ sounds like â€œDa-Bo-Luoâ€.
I guess Iâ€™m not overly surprised that China is trying to keep their masses from a game about demons and such.. I mean, surely it will turn their citizens into devil worshipers just like us Americans right?
It apparently took six months just for Starcraft 2 to get to Chinese shelves, so how long will Diablo 3 take, if ever?
Savvy internet users have already been able to get their paws on some copies, and Iâ€™m sure they will continue to as well.
Maybe one day Chinaâ€™s government will realize that sheltering their people just makes them weak in the long run, but at this point I doubt it.
