Sorry, I didn't realise you held a PhD in Japanese crime. Of course you don't need to provide evidence, my mistake.
and your constant use of the comparative form doesn't deny my claims, but rather highlights it
There is no proof that DMC 5 was a Sony mandated thing: their policy affects every region. So DMC5 not being affected in JPN doesn't add up to being Sony's policy.
Interesting, suppose Sony is announcing the “policy” to clear up confusion for devs/publishers? Otherwise, why would Capcom self-censor on ps4 only?
@LivingMetal (sorry, forgot to multi quote): I am not a big free speech guy, but I see your point, and sure thre could be a slippery slope there. One thing I will say is Sony picked the right topic, because it is difficult to even start a rational discussion about this in mixed company. I remember a local political debate where someone asked the candidates to support a zero tolerance policy for child porn;one candidate fell for the bait and tried to imply the topic was not black and white and was almost booed off the stage. I was about 20 at the time and the internet was growing, we were maybe two years away from the first teens getting jailed for sharing nude images with their boyfriends/girlfriends, but of course in the minds of the audience it is not about the edge cases formed by random cut off dates for “adulthood”, it is about abuse and exploitation of actual kids.Last edited by couchmonkey - on 26 April 2019
