Tough one this and quite surprising too in some ways but first person shooter fans will shed a tear today as Konami announces that they will not distribute the Iraq war epic Six Days in Fallujah.

Funnily enough there was a whopping great out cry about the game giving a firm answer to the question of how soon is too soon? The answer is apparently four years when you’re still fighting the same war.

I say it’s surprising because the cynical side of me though the media circus of a few weeks back was just some kind of PR stunt to make people buy the game but if it was it’s backfired in a rather large way. Scores of ex-servicemen complained despite the title going out of its way to use authentic materials for a full account of what it was like to be there and now it appears that all the work was for nought.
