It's finally happening, people. Sony's having an event on February 20th at 6PM EST, and all signs point to this being the event where the company finally announces the PlayStation 4. If they really do announce the successor to the PlayStation 3, it'd give Sony a nice long while to build up buzz for their lineup at Electronic Entertainment Expo this year. There's a remote chance that this has nothing to do with the company's next console, but it's ridiculously slim.
A couple months ago EA
announced that it would allow gamers to play as the Taliban
in the multi-player modes of its upcoming Medal of Honor
game. The response to this decision was vocal and negative, and came to the same conclusion for a variety of reasons. This week, EA rescinded the whole thing... sort of
Players will still be able to play as insurgents in the new MoH, its just that the game will call them "Opposing Force" instead of "Taliban." No aspects of the gameplay will be changed other than the name.
But even this purely cosmetic change is too much for some industry analysts.
