Singapore bans Xbox game because of lesbian love scene



According to sources obtained by GameAxis, the upcoming Xbox 360 game Mass Effect has been banned here in Singapore because of a lesbian love scene. Dang! Watch the scene above.

Mass Effect is an action role-playing game developed by BioWare for the Xbox 360. The game takes place in the year 2183, with the player assuming the role of an elite human soldier named Commander Shepard, set out to explore a vast universe on the ship, SSV Normandy.

Mass Effect has a November 20 release. Unfortunately for gamers in Singapore, getting a hold of the game has to be done discreetly overseas.

It's a pity because I think the so called love scene is pretty lame. You can't see much anyway. I think banning this game has shown that Singapore is indeed a homophobic country. Maybe it doesn't want its young people to be corrupted by playing lesbian sex on their Xboxes.

Update: Singapore lifts ban on Mass Effect and now selling it with a M18 label.
