Electronic Arts caused some controversy when it started showcasing real-world weapons in marketing for Medal of Honor: Warfighter and now it looks like the publisher is trying to distance itself from these arms makers. Originally, the Medal of Honor: Warfighter website displayed the logos of several arms manufacturers along with links their products.
The links allowed players to browse their selection of guns, knives, and other combat gear. While those logos are still present on the Warfighter website, the links have now been removed. It seems like Electronic Arts wasn’t aware that its Warfighter partners page contained these links at first, since a representative told The New York Times that they were removed after they were discovered. “We felt it was inappropriate and took the links down,” Jeff Brown said.
At any rate, they are removed now. They don’t want this stuff to overshadow the game itself.
