I remember thinking it would be a good thing for sony to just open psvr to porn games, as there isn't as much concern for a "family" image in the brand

Well, things changed lol

No one should have the amount of money that would generate. Its just too much for a single company to handle.

This feels like the Flash messed with the timeline again.

Sony should move to the US already, they already hate their Japanese roots and pandering to the west is all they do anyway these days.

I have to say I agree. Obviously the reverse is also dangerous—Nintendo can be parochial to a fault—but accommodating western audiences (and western mores) so forcefully has made Sony a lot less interesting as a publisher/taste-maker.

How can I buy this game once it's out? So far, I understand it's JP only.

For Switch, you need to create an account that is for the Japan region. that gives you access to the Japanese eshop and then you can buy this game. i believe you'll need to buy a Japanese Eshop card though, i don't believe they take any credit/debit cards that aren't from that region. I'm sure there is some good youtube videos out there that give you a step by step tutorial on all this stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R4IQ8yOt8w maybe this one, didn't watch it.

If you want physical (I think they are doing physical on this game), you can buy Japaneses games from places like play-asia.com or Amazon.jp. No mention yet if they plan to include english in these versions, so I'd double check that.

Gonna try for physical on this one. Thankfully Switch is region-free last I checked.

Wow, Sony really want to hand the next gen to MS with their BS, don't they? First MS committed PR suicide with their 24 hour DRM and anti-used games policies, and now Sony are driving people away with their censorship.

I would've thought Sony would be smarter than to piss off their fans by doing stupid shit after the Xbox One's disastrous reveal, yet here we are.

Yes, the average video game fan is going to jump to Xbox in mass because obscure Japanese games have had perversion features removed--even though Xbox doesn't have these games to begin with.

You guys are really weird.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Interactive_Entertainment

"In April 2016, SCE and Sony Network Entertainment International was restructured and reorganized into Sony Interactive Entertainment, carrying over the operations and primary objectives from both companies. The same year, SIE moved its headquarters from Tokyo to San Mateo, California."

Sony is a US-based console manufacturer since two years ago. Japan is a subsidiary nowadays.



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

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Is there a source to say this censorship was called for by Sony?

I'm not doubting the possibility but I find it strange considering how much mature content is on the system. The Witcher 3 wasn't censored. After the rumors of censorship for Nier: Automata, perhaps because of internet uproar, that game and the protagonists buttcheeks weren't censored either. The Last of Us 2 has shown girl on girl action in its previews.

Is this a move by the publisher, because they might have thought a mainstream audience in NA couldn't handle the extra booby physics, where as a secondary demographic like that on the Switch my find it as a good selling point since they get something the original release didn't?

I have no stake in this since I find the content silly, but I'd like to know if Sony is really at fault here?

There have been multiple reports about censorship on Sony systems and the number of titles that gets censored on PS4 while saw a release with all the lewd content on Switch have been increasing the last few months.

This is a rather recent occurring, and that would be why those games you mentioned haven't been affected - and also that thing happening affects mostly those mid-tier japanese devs. I don't know if Sony would be going after the western devs and the AAA, they have much to lose if they messed up their relationship with them. Also about The Last of Us 2, I am not really aware of what happens in the game besides the lesbian couple, but I don't think it have sexual content worth of censorship.

Well that's just unfortunate.

None of these games interest me so it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the system, but I am always for more options instead of less so it's a bummer to hear.



I'm a little bummed that it runs 900p30 at best. Seems like a lazy effort. I kinda miss the days when Nintendo's hardware could go toe-to-toe with it's competitors tech-wise:
