    When theres a ban on them,it means that companies cannot directly market the game and ship it to that nation,but if someone bought it off ebay from a 3rd party reseller,will customs confiscate it?


    I was reading about COD MW2 and the no russian level and its taken out of the Russian version,and in the German version if you kill a civilian the level restarts.


    And don't bring up torrents or using steam with American info,I know that would work.:rolleyes:

    You can always buy the game in a foreign country.
    Noone will care about that.
    But "banned" games the company is not allowed to advertise then.
    If i am right you can still buy them :)
    Censored games are... censored but free to advertise

    I really don't understand the reasoning of censoring or "banning" them,when people can still get it.

    It 's simple. Gov'ments ban something so that various people stop bitching at them. For the rest of the matter, they wouldn't really give a shit. :)
