The recently released Medal of Honor public beta revealed that a playable side of the multiplayer conflict would pit players as members of the Al Qaeda terrorist organization. The move brought on a sizable controversy to both EA proper and their DICE studio, the latter of which responded to the issue in a recent interview with PSM3.
“I think it is a fair point,” said producer Patrick Liu, “We do stir up some feelings, although it’s not about the war, it’s about the soldiers. We can’t get away from what the setting is and who the factions are, but in the end, it’s a game, so we’re not pushing or provoking too hard.”

The popular video game series “Medal of Honor” has become a target of derision because of the latest installment. Previous entries in the video game series took place in World War II. This game takes place in the current
war if Afghanistan. It’s not the first game to do so, but it is a “MOH” first. However, the game in multiplayer mode pits players as either coalition (American or British) against opposing players as the Taliban in “Medal of Honor 2010.” The British Secretary of Defense thinks the game should be banned.
