Boobs are bad, violence and mass shootings arr okr

The world is weird: you can gun down plenty of people in a video game but digital sexy girls is too much. Brutal deaths in Mortal Kombat are alright but large amounts of cleavage is a taboo!

On the other end, Japan is cool with this stuff but their pornography is censored. Material meant for adults is censored!

 

I just can't wrap my head around some of this stuff!

 

Whatever, at least this game is still available on PC. Best place to play it anyways for the nude mods.

I am not surprised. It was getting banned everywhere. I saw some of "content" from this game and ... wow, they took it to the extreme. Go look at that crystal rod thing.

Everywhere? The US and deep religious muslim countries are basically the ones that have problems with that. That seems pretty OK (while cheap) for european standards, I suspect a age 16-rating or so (18 is the highest).

Cross play block,censorship...what is up with Sony in 2018 doing stuff Nintendo would do in 2012?

I thought the same thing. Strange.

This is EXTREMELY worrying. What's next? Is that just just for this game or is it some new Sony policy? How do they even draw the line between what is "OK sexy" and "too sexy"? Lots of small JP publishers and devs now rely on the west to sell ecchi games so I do hope there is no chapter 2 of this.

I talk about, that this is pretty specific to the US, in europe usually violence is more frowned upon than sexuality (in media for both cases).

Using School shootings instead of just saying violence is what the "the fuck you talking about?" is about

Otherwise yes, America is stupid in regards to violence vs nudity. You can show the most gruesome deaths/violence/mutilation/ect on some crime tv drama show, yet if a bare butt gets shown all hell breaks loose.



Silly to me. Just slap an 18+ rating. Adults get to decide wether they want it or not.

I don't care for such games, but it's sugestion, not the real thing. It's not porn. But whatever, i don't really care.

That's the thing that's annoying here, the ESRB had already approved the game with a M rating, which is 17+, and PEGI had already approved with with an 18+ rating I believe. Sony is going against the ESRB and PEGI here basically and saying that they know better than the rating boards do about what is and isn't suitable for release.

 Jim Ryan, head of global sales and marketing for PlayStation says “We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe,” says Ryan. “Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it’s something we have to think about very carefully.”

Clearly you are not thinking of the children.

Funny, that the quote above is in regards to crossplay, when it works so much better for this current game.



I'm pretty sure this game is on the Switch though. I saw screens of it on balloons in Super Mario Odyssey



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
