Forums - Gaming Discussion - Switch version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Scarlet is not censored, PS4 version will be missing several 'features'

OP, it seems like your chart got cut off.  In the 'feature' comparison, it looks like the Switch version is missing 30fps.  Not sure if Nintendo is censoring those 30fps but it clearly shows that the Xbox One version will be the best version.

Pfew. Get the one that is 30fps or the one missing what makes the series popular and liked. I guess this non existent version will solve both issues.

Nintendos philosophy has always been gameplay over graphics. That notion shouldn't exclude mature content.

Since when is 0 fps better than 30 fps?

Since I was making a joke relative to what I'd already said earlier in the thread.

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.

Imagine telling a kid during the PS1/N64 days that Nintendo is completely cool with tits & ass and sexualization in games, but Sony has a problem with it.

I can't tell you but it does involve softening gel.

This. If it can happen to a game I don't play, it can happen to a game I do play. 

Precisely why no one should be in favor of this.

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?

 

edit: spelling

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.

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.

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.

They should probably ditch it then, it's not like they're selling anything over there anyway. Just leave the market to Nintendo and Microsoft.

Uh... You realize MS's influence is non-existent in japanese gaming space aside from Minecraft, right? Meaning with Sony ditching the Japanese market they can either go Nintendo , mobile, or die. (Since the PC market isn't nearly as big over there)
