Default Re: Retail vs. Steam

i guess this explains it

Quote:
Malaysia
Malaysia will ban any high impact scary violence, cruelty, content that against Muslim and sexual content. In August 2008, Head of a Malaysian consumer rights organization, Mohamed Idris, called for a ban of Grand Theft Auto and other similarly violent games such as Manhunt Series.[29][30] However, the game still continues to sell.On February 2010, one week after Dante's Inferno released, the game was banned by Jabatan Agama Islam for cruelty, sexuality and content that against the Muslim law. However the game still continues to sell.
retail stores might have decided to not follow the rule, since they still want the sales. but steam has to follow the rules or could possibly be banned from the country all together.
