Syphon Filter 3 cover art was a little bit too realistic about its terror threats
Sony’s third-person stealth shooter Syphon Filter 3 was originally scheduled for release on September 25th 2001, but the 9/11 terrorist attack and the subsequent anthrax scare made Sony hold the game back until November 6th.
The original box art featured the stars and stripes surrounded by green gaseous fumes and the blurb featured language like “WANTED: Deadly Force Authorized”, “deadly arsenal” and “terrorists”. All this was changed, but some copies had already shipped and became a bit of a collector’s item, known as the 9/11 American Flag Cover.
