Mass Effect banned in Singapore

The Media Development Authority of Singapore has decided to prevent Microsoft's forthcoming Xbox 360 title, Mass Effect, from being released in the country.

The Media Development Authority of Singapore has decided to prevent Microsoft's forthcoming Xbox 360 title, Mass Effect, from being released in the country.

According to a report in the nation's broadsheet, The Straits Times, the decision has been taken due to the inclusion in the game of a "sex scene between a human woman and a female alien."

The report claims that the decision has "caused an outcry among local and international gamers, who said it was too strict a decision."

Singapore has previously banned other titles, including God of War 2 for nudity and The Darkness for excessive religious expletives.

Microsoft hadn't responded to a request for comment at the time of writing.
