Mexicans want Call of Juarez sequel banned

ALeqM5gg9MG7u4vbknXlit2L-q8UVQE-zwAh, Mexico, the land of cheap booze, sleazy clubs and drug cartels! Officials of Ciudad Juarez, the location of upcoming shooter sequel Call of Juarez: The Cartel, are angry that they are the subject of a video game and want it banned.

The city is one of worst affected by drug cartels, having seen about 6000 people die in the last two years. Congressmen of Chihuahua state, where Ciudad Juarez is located, are fighting to get the federal Interior Department to ban the game. They believe that children could be affected by exposure to the game, noting that “they [the children] are going to grow up with this kind of image and lack of values.”

Call of Juarez: The Cartel is due out this summer for PS3 and Xbox 360.

The ceremony was held in Berlin’s 8500 seater adidas stadium where Peter Moore, the ubiquitous Microsoft VP, presented the Portugal team with the trophy. Portugal beat Mexico 2-1 in the final.

The Portugal team, pictured right, consists of Miguel Angelo Dinis, 28, and Antonio Luis Ferreira Gomes, 21, who were accompanied by Joao Miguel Gouveia da Cruz Dias, 24, their “ultimate fan”.
