Censorship needs to die. The game was clearly approved by every ratings organization with the butt crack in, why censor it out with a day one patch once it is already approved? I suspect Sony is ultimately behind this since we know they were behind other recent censoring. Why Capcom would cover for them by doing it to the other platforms too though is beyond me. Did Sony literally pay them to gimp the other versions so they wouldn't look as bad? 

they don't play through the whole game in those ratings organizations, the devs usually show them the most risky scenes - maybe they only showed it censored (if that was the intended state)

and an age rating is not set in stone, it can be altered once the ratings organizations feel that's waranted

In this particular case, the ESRB for sure knew about the nudity beforehand because they mentioned it in the rating, back in January they gave it an M rating for Blood, Partial Nudity, Strong Language, and Violence, specifically mentioning the partially exposed buttocks in their rating description. So if that was the case, then either PEGI or CERO was responsible. But I doubt it personally, seems more likely that Sony was responsible since we know they have forced censoring on other recent games. 



guess it's time to get an xbox

based on this pic, I think they were shown the censored version at the ESRB:

Yeppp. I'm pretty excited to see what mods the community comes up with!



                                                                                                             

Thanks Capcom. I'm totally able to slice and dice through thousands of creatures with sharp blades, but a single buttcrack? Thats where I draw the line.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
