Singapore decided to ban the new Xbox 360 game Mass Effect because of an "immoral" lesbian love scene between two alien chicks.
Local newspaper the Straits Times reported today that the science fiction role-playing game - which is due to be released in the UK later this month* - has been rejected by Singapore’s Media Development Authority (MDA).
The motivation for the MDA's decision? The game supposedly shows a human woman and female alien kissing and caressing each other - a union the organisation believes inappropriate for gamers to examine.
Singaporean law prohibits games which feature "exploitative or gratuitous sex and violence, or denigrate any race or religion".
The MDA’s decision has apparently caused a mass outcry among gamers in the region, who have branded the organisation’s move as too strict.
