A "mistake" that only on Western ver (AU/EU) of PS4 is somehow ridiculous

The mistake would be the implementation of the lense flare effect. Not the removal of it.
The reason it has not yet been removed from EU/AU is possibly due to the process of getting the patch approved in multiple different countries with different laws and regulations. That can take time.

You think that not only did Sony ask Capcom to censor an extra butt when Capcom were coincidentally already planning on censoring one. But Sony then backtracked on this for the first time due to backlash, but then didn't do it in Europe?

And how does the fact that the patch hasn't been implemented in Europe yet mean that this is all Sony's doing?
What is your reasoning behind that?

Sony should just change their name to soyny since they now worship at the altar of social justice. Using gamergate as an example It is infuriating how the lamestream media must lie and always present women as the victim even when they are culpable. Women must never be made responsible for their actions and be shielded from all consequences and criticisms just like a child would but they're still equal apparently.



Does anyone genuinely believe these kinds of actions will make rapists and CP viewers think twice before committing crimes? Or is the motive just PR? I think the correct response is to add more guys like skivvy Link or sneaking suit Snake and sprinkle in some shotas too. Problem solved, everyone is sexualized equally!



I fail to see whats bad about this.

Just misogynists complaining that they can’t be misogynist in peace.

Well, if it's underage girls they're going after, not so bad. Still, for some reason, a butt had to be censored in Devil May Cry 5.



Im all for freedom of speech and creative freedom, im mostly amongst the defenders of those two but there is still a limit. For freedom of speech that limit is when it crosses into plain hate speech that has a purpose to invoke harm onto others and for creative freedom i would say the limit is crossed when it moves into sexualising underage women(in this case).

Then why that scene was censored on ps4 only? And then a lot people complained and only US PS4 ver was removed, wow, facepalm. 

Europe is Sony land, majority of PS fans there will eat anything from Sony and ps4 while in US, Sony have to compete with Xbox and partly Nintendo

Does Sony deserve all the negative focus because they just had 1 more thing censored compared to the others?

I've answered that many times.
You even cited it in your previous post.

Why do patches for games on different systems some times differ?
The answer is not that it's always deliberate on the orders of the console manufacturer.

First of all, do not make generalizations like "the majority of the fans of *insert group* will eat anything from *insert company*". Especially when you have no means to back them up.

Secondly, if Sony are worried about losing PS4 owners over this, then they stand to lose the most in EU.

Try using your generalization with Xbox.
They dominated US last generation, so US Xbox fans "will just eat anything from MS", right?
No, there was a massive shift of Xbox players in the US going to PS4 this generation, after MS's DRM policies, etc.

If Sony assessed that they stand to lose customers over this, it would seem very unlikely that they'd willingly lose customers in Europe, especially over a silly bodypart that is not important to them.
