Diablo III Hits A Snag in South Korea
It appears the South Korean Ratings Board believes the next Blizzard release, Diablo III, is related to gambling. Apparently the board is “conflicted about what to do” over the auction house in the game due to being too close to gambling online. The game is currently stuck in the air over the issue.
The game has already been rejected twice and although it was submitted for a third time on December 22 with the cash-out option disabled, the rep said it still looks dicey. “As it is described in the (re)submission, committee members are still reluctant,” he added.
