BF3 Banned in Iran

With Battlefield 3 being the word in everyone's mouth ever since it's release, Dice couldn't help but build a little infamy along the way. A lot of you might have played the game, and know that the plot is set in Iran, and understandably the Iranian government wasn't too happy with the way the game depicted the country. At launch the government didn't allow the distribution of the title, but due to the high piracy rates they have now released an official prohibition ban on the title, with severe punishment given to people selling, buying, or found in possession of the game or BF3 merchandise (original or not).
