Sony ramping up censoring of Japanese games, now forcing all Japanese games to go through Western content inspections

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony ramping up censoring of Japanese games, now forcing all Japanese games to go through Western content inspections

Ok. Now Sony needs to die. Seems like their Politically Correct movie division infected SCE. They're really getting ahead of themselves again.

I understand the screening western audience because it's a fucking loss cause but for fucks sakes leave the other regions alone. This conformist behavior is killing everything.

Wow what a stupid thing to start doing.

I can't believe I live in an era where Sony censors and Nintendo doesn't care. And I REALLY can't believe it reversed in the span of like a year and a half.

I remember someone once telling me that Sakura from Naruto was a better heroine than Nami from One Piece, and legitimately brought up Sakura showing less skin as a reason. It was totally baffling and inane to me, but sometimes I wonder if it's not rare for people to put a bigger focus on design and aesthetic more than the actual content behind those designs.

...So who's the better heroine?

To me, and just taking this news as is, this is a disappointing decision by Sony. Not only because its caving to crybabies who these games aren't appealing to in the first place, but because added regulation is likely going to make things harder for smaller devs who might not have the resources to fund another round of regulations, and only get by with a loyal fanbase who likes the type of aesthetics these games are aiming for.

Of course, I can understand why Sony would do it, given today's political climate, but that doesn't make it any less disappointing to me.

Better sales of the uncensored version should eventually make things right. I recall many years ago Mortal Kombat 1 being censored on SNES. The Genesis version ended up outselling it so Nintendo relented and MK2 released uncensored.

Wallets speak louder than words. Sony's just gonna have to learn.



Everybody buys the switch version now while the ps4 versions of those games will now barely sell . KLAMarine is right about the Mortal Kombat thing Though I'm unsure about Sony if they'll change to uncensor ? maybe PS4 and in 2019 needs to take a hit in console sales but it wont happen :( because its Sony so there'll be more and more censorships in future

PC will always be best platform: even if games get censored, modding means censorship can be undone.

Yes but by Sony forcing "PC" content, they're covering both bases. Smart.

Clever fiends! Sony is playing chess while we play checkers.

Man, we've been a long way since the localization controversy of #FE TMS ... Nintendo has pratically open themselves to everything and now Sony tries to do the exact contrary of what they promoted at the beginning of PS4's life.

Still doesn't change my stance that if it's inputed mindlessly into the game with no reason than just for the hornies out there, then I certainly won't cry over such things.

don't the "hornies out there" get the right to play what they want? sounds like you'd only bothered with censorship when it affects you directly and your tastes

censorship is bad 100% of the time. put a 18+ rating and give out any warning desired, but it's never ok to censor art of any type

Did you know that PlayStation headquarters moved to California recently? Hmm, I wonder what that has to do with this shitfest.

its simple - make an option to turn nudity on or off. thats all that needs to happen

I think what Sony is doing here comes more of a place of not objectifying women point of view
