    Just based on local newspaper reports,people dying because of earphones at loud volume while crossing roads/railway tracks are much more & yet nobody asks for ban on earphones.

    There are responsible people who play PUBG as well, so banning PUBG is like banning cigarettes because they cause cancer.

    Edit: I think if we are patient, all this hullaballoo will die down eventually. This ban cannot be enforced efficiently and it will either be overturned or the cops will simply become apathetic given enough time.

    It may or may not be true, but i've seen guys staying near railway tracks sitting in railway tracks and speaking to each other especially in night, since they knew when trains will come and cross their places. But these guys who died playing PUBG may have used their earphones for in-game commands, and lost focus on the surroundings when that train came.

    The Ban was not for responsible people. Government has banned many sites to stop piracy in India but it is still happening on a large scale.
    PUBG ban is just a formal step by Govt to show us that they are doing something.

    There are more than a few studies that answer this age old "myth" at this point. I guess this is to keep general public happy, so that they can't say "Govt has not done anything". PUBG is by far not even close to the level of violence that some other games tend to portray in their games viz a vis the gore levels in general are very low in PUBGm.

    The main reason they give for banning this game is "It induces aggressive behavior in people, and promotes violence". By this logic, majority of PC games will come under it, yet they did nothing for PC game sector.

    Maybe, they ban the game because of this real life incident?

    In this article they forcefully trying to tie this incident with PUBG just cause the guy was playing PUBG. Indian media contributes lot in spreading sh!t everywhere.

    The thing is that no one wants to do a thorough investigation but they need to calm the public. So they just say "it because of PUBG". That will get the public off their back and gives them a new scapegoat.

    Nincompoops taking selfies in dangerous positions end up killing themselves and people died while watching Ravan Dahan but nobody is asking to ban those. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I don't play PUBG but my brother plays it. And I think 6hrs per day is more than enough to stop players who are addicted to it.

    Banning is not a solution. Heard of parallel apps? There are many loopholes that can easily be accessed by the players.

    Parallel apps won't help with PUBG. Play time is linked with your ID.

    Do you think playing as guest or via an id matters to kids who are addicted to it?
