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.
this is some bad hot take. These games being censored are so niche that it will have like next to no effect on next gen between Sony and MS.
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?
This entire post is so silly. 2 girls are kissing in TloU2 so why is that not censored? what?
This system is new so games already released are obviously not affected. And it is censoring content related to underage looking characters being put into sexual situations/ poses and content related to female character harassment. its not harassment (cause obviously its not real) but I cant think of another way to word it.
Those 3 games you listed wouldn't be affected. Nier maybe, but we will need to see the extent to how the system works with future games. Catherine PS4 will be interesting to see.
Nintendo not censoring makes sense. Besides the fact that as mentioned, they have not done this to a 3rd party game in years, they are obviously ok just getting 3rd parties to support a console as much as the Switch has been (arguably same for handheld considering the drop in support on 3DS).
It is still dumb that Sony does this now, or at least makes the process as difficult it it sounds, but ultimately these are games that I have zero inclination to buy. So, it is what it is
Just remember, when they come for the games we like, the perverts won't defend us. I'm sure violent content or "politically-charged" will be next.
and I am sure you arent just pushing a fear mongering agenda. Censorship sucks and obviously should not happen but lets not jump the gun here.
