Reminds me of that Apocalypse Now quote...

How much software had I already pirated? There was those six that I know about for sure. Close enough to find their CD keys on Pirate Bay. But this time it was an American and a corporation. That wasn't supposed to make any difference to me, but it did. Shit charging a man with copyright violations in this place was like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.

You'd get more than bitchy people. You'd have the Fox News generation in arms, Glenn Beck screaming on the television, an A/O rating from the ESA, and, even if it managed to eek out an M rating, you'd have a de facto ban from retailers afraid of enraging a bunch of teabaggers.

In reality, it'd be the same effect. I highly doubt that the game would see the light of day. Sure, you could pirate it or order it from specialty online stores, but that's probably the same thing happening in Russia. It's better than an "official" government ban, but censorship by the masses is very alive and very well here in these United States.
