Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bastard is too much for Sony

Saw this today, as explained above, their game was appropriately named Bombing Bastards on the WiiU.
It was no problem for Nintendo but a big nono for Sony

There is a game called A bastards tale. Guess either Sony is being inconsistent or this guy is spinning yarn.

It's the Bombing and Bastard combo.

The WiiU didn't care, because it was a bombing bastard already.

Yeah, I see the problem. A bastards tale is the correct use of the word. Bombing bastards could imply a whole slew of things but I don't know much about the game.

What an odd thing, Sony people can be real bastards, perhaps they are worried about the wrong usage of the term =p

this was years ago... why is this being posted now?



"We here at PlayStation always have in mind what's best for our customers. We can tell from the high sales of PSN cards that the vast majority of our fanbase isn't old enough to have a credit card, so we decided that 'Bombing Bastards' is too inappropriate of a title to appear on our platform.

More than 80m PS4 and PS4 Pro systems have been sold through to customers since November 2013. Our latest blockbuster Spiderman is enjoyed by more than 6.2m gamers only ten days after release. We here at PlayStation are humbled by the continued support of our loyal customers."



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

This happened wktb another game that was posted before this. Stealth Inc I think. 

I'm indifferent on the matter



This isn't news. Stealth Bastard had to change its title when it made the jump to console years ago.

It's a title similar to Bomberman.

The Switch port was just announced, and they had to revert the title to Busters thanks to Sony.
