Microsoft Pulls Game Because Toilet Sound Offends Chinese

Microsoft pulled a video game from the Chinese market because the sound of toilet is considered offensive there. The game is called Occupied Forever and it can't get certification for the Chinese release on Windows Phone Marketplace because of the "offensive" toilet noises, or so claims Austrian indie developer, Christian Zangl.

According to Game Politics, "Microsoft has a requirement for its Windows Phone Marketplace that 'Content that is offensive in any country/region to which your application is targeted is not allowed.' Occupied Forever failed certification because it 'contains content that depicts toilet flushing sounds.'"

The game, which is already available for iOS devices in China, and, judging by the comments and rating (4.5 out of 5), Chinese iPhone users seem to dig it.

The game is avaiable now on iTunes. It's free, you know, in case you really like toilet sounds.
