I 100% agree with Sony some of the games look like they were designed for child molesters not players, underage looking females with oversized breasts impossible figures. All ties in mostly with the JRPG s from certain companies. This should not be a concern to 99% of Sony's base.

Considering most of these games sell on Japan that have very low criminal rates, then it hardly is for child molesters. Also there are plenty of 12 year old girls with big breast.

Some posters make it look, like you have to be a fan of nasty illegal stuff to criticize Sony for this. You are not. Let me be crystal clear here: nobody in this thread endorses disgusting, illegal, horrific content.
But let me state one other thing: if Sony only wanted to remove illegal dumpster fires from their platform, they wouldn't need a policy at all, they would just enforcing what the laws mandate. But they need a policy. This obviously means they want to remove legal stuff.
If you are the opinion some stuff is so nasty it should not be distributed, push for a law extension to outlaw this content. Laws are in most countries made through a democratic process and have a lot of considerations brought forward. Not that the process of making laws is without flaws, but I know it is certainly better than ... the managers of a big multinational corporation making arbitrary decisions for all their customers and business partners. Because this is the core of the issue here: some men in power decide over what others can or cannot do, while avoiding democratic process and discussion.

I'm even more against government censorship than private company.

Welp, this will certainly lure out all the neckbeards making inappropriate comments and completely reaffirming Sony's decision. Isn't it nice how society works?

It will certainly an interesting subject to future scholars how the sexual liberation of the 20th century will be completely undone by the 21st century.

you missed the most relevant part - that the sexual revolution will be undone by feminists... you know... the people who are supposed to be advocating for the freedom of women?

"this will certainly lure out all the neckbeards"

what is a neckbeard?

A neckbeard is a derogatory term for a gamer, it's a negative term used by people who do not participate in the media being discussed in an attempt to make the enjoyers of said media appear to be unkept and not clean shaven.

This whole thing is the same as 5 years ago when it initially blew up badly, you have people who have never and will never buy games trying to dictate what they should play like for those who do play them, I think of it like me and the Twilight series of movies, they depict violence and abuse against the female protagonist and I don't get why they exist or have the fandom, but there is a large audience of bean flickers who love the way Edward keeps his lady in check so the movies made a ton of cash. Good on the studio imo for creating a product that sells and people wanted, regardless of the content, there was a demand and the studio fulfilled it. That's how consumerism works.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Shrug. If i want porn i go to the internet.

That's not the issue though, my man. The problem is that creativity is being castrated. Tiptoeing around certain subjects isn't the way to go.



Wow, this sets a really bad precedent going forward, and us gamers need to stand up and protect the freedom that allows developers to make the games we love.

This is just gross. I'm 31 years old, and for my entire life, very few things tend to offend me, so it's especially difficult for me to even fathom what goes through a particular person's mind that wants to put an end to this for everyone. As an example, it's like if a vegan began fighting to ban meat from being available for anyone else to eat. Maybe just keep being a vegan and allow others to continue doing their own thing.

Sony needs to bull up and stop with this trend, or we may never seen cleavage in a videogame ever again, and that's just not cool.

What does that even mean? Sony doesn't make those kinda games anymore, so we have to look at what third parties cant show. I don't work at Tecmo either, but we know who are responsible for the DOA Xtreme censorship on the PS4. 

Maybe Sony should learn to tell people to use the appropriate age rating instead of telling them what to make.
