Dragon Age: Inquisition BANNED in India.



According to an official statement from EA "in order to avoid a breach of local content laws” the game has been withdrawn from both Indian Origin service and retail stores.

The decision is related to DA:I's several gay sex scenes/romances and the Indian law that criminalises homosexual intercourse. The law was first instituted in 1861, struck down later for being unconstitutional then restored again in December 2013 by the Indian Supreme Court. You read that right, it's 2014 and people in India can't play Dragon Age: Inquisition because of an 1861 law

Customers who pre-ordered the game has received refunds and an apology. Gay people in India cannot be reached for comments because apparently they don't exist.

source + paraphrase by me
