Konami’s “Six Days In Fallujah” Title Garnering Support From Our Troops

Konami is working on a new game title that has been quite controversial, especially here in the US. The title as you can see is Six Days in Fallujah. Fallujah, a.k.a. “The City of Mosques” is a city in Iraq, not far from Baghdad, along the Euphrates river, it is also the site of some of the heaviest fighting our troops have seen, starting around 2004. So, making a game about something that most portray as a wretched period of time, well you can see how that’d be controversial.

Before this particular battle began, there were between 450-600 thousand people living in Fallujah, now its sitting somewhere around 30k inhabitants with more moving to Fallujah each day, now that its relatively safe. That should give you some idea of the, um, “Downsizing” this city saw, that would certainly make for some killer game play right? Right, at least that’s what a good number of our own troops think.

When asked, several troops said they thought it would be a great idea to get a game like this out there as long as it is accurate, realistic, and truly portrays the way things are going for our troops. One of the people asked even requested a Co-Op mode, I guess so he and his friends from the military can relive the good times? Personally, I can’t really argue with the men and women who actually had to live through it. Plus, could you imagine the hilarity that will inevitably ensue when you try and trash talk a veteran who was actually there over XBL? Good luck with that, I bet the military has invented SoIP (Stab over Internet Protocol).
