In a surprising move, Microsoft has pulled its Xbox fighting game Kakuto Chojin from Japanese shelves. According to company representatives, the recall is due to sensitive religious issues in the game. Reportedly, Microsoft plans to modify the game to remove the potentially offensive material in several Asian countries. Citing a company spokesperson, "Microsoft respects the religious beliefs of all people, and for that reason, we decided a recall was the best course of action." It's currently unknown when the modified version of the game will be available. For reference, while Kakuto Chojin has been available at retailers in America since late fall, it arrived on Japanese shelves on January 1.

*sigh* Microsoft can do no right in Japan... can anyone elaborate on what these religious issues are? I wouldn't mind knowing if they are legitimate, or if the japanese society is just figuring out another way to hinder the box in their country...

I guess the background music for one of the characters uses quotes from the Koran (or however you want to spell it).

It's sacreligious to read out of the text in anything other than a holy setting such as prayer.

Not sure if this is the real reason, got the info from other boards so I don't have a real link.

Seeing as the Koran is Jewish and the are only pulling the games off of shelves in Japan, I don't think that is the reason.

The Koran is Islamic.

Nice spam there PublicEnemy2k3, thats only been said 4 times. And there are a few spellings of the book, don't act like "Quran" is the only way. He may have learned it "Koran."


now that im done the Quran is ISLAM

Try 'Islamic," not ISLAM.


and the torah is jewish

Actually, the torah are the first five books of the old testament, and all three religions recognize these books to be true, not just Judaism.

My friends and I were theorizing that the readings from the Quran are just a cover-up - and the real-deal is that they know the game sucks balls, and they want to get it off the shelves.

EDIT: LOL Qbas - believe it or not we didn't get our theory from Penny Arcade.

when a jew says we read TORAH they are really saying we follow the teaching of the torah AND the talmud. when a jew says THE TORAH it is almost always a direct reference only to the torah. jews do this because the teachings of the talmud are blasphemous beyond description and incredibly insulting to Christians, they don't want the general public to know the things they actually do in terms of worship according to their "religion." because if the truth got out, they'd be getting lynched left and right, everywhere.

Sorry, just correcting mistakes so some other moron doesn't go home with wrong information. How can I post and still manage to shut up at the same time?? I need to get a life??? Your the one with over 900 posts in about 3.5 months. I've been here for about a year 4.5 months. And please, do not bother me any more with ignorant posts.

What I mean you fool, is people who post just for the sake of posting. Like BR used to do. He even went as far to state the only reason he posted so much was because he wanted to be the top poster. Now, to post for that reason, is absolutely ridiculous! If you are posting because you have something to add, terrific, if you are posting because you are bored, fine, if you posting just to be the top poster because you think it will bring you noteriety and respect...well, you've got issues and need to check some things in your life.
