Gears of War 2: Provisional ban in Germany
The Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) of Germany announced that the console shooter Gears of War 2 has been temporarily banned in Germany.
Thus Gears of War 2 must not be sold to persons who are younger than 18 years. The game may not be advertised, media like PC Games Hardware are not allowed to deliver judgmental or advertising reports. Because of this PCGH removed all pictures and articles that come under those restrictions. As you might know, servers of PCGH are located in Germany.
