Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony to crack down on sexually explicit games |Update: Specifically Japanese games containing underage characters

Using #meToo movement to justify a take down on erotic and pornographic content is ridiculous.
I mean they gonna take their yaoi VNs away from fujoshis because they get harassed at work ?
"B-but gamergaters likes sexual content" everyone f*in does.

Hmmmm....

How is sexual content misogynistic by nature ?

If it is, the solution is to write better sexual content. Not ban it.

fuck sony

men getting slaughtered by the thousands in war games? well that's ok because fuck men

but women showing a little sex appeal? now that's a problem

and nevermind the fact that men are depicted in their idealised forms too, i will never look like kratos no matter how much i train but fucking sjws will just deflect that and say that's a male power fantasy

the ideology driving this is so fucking stupid that it truly is sad to see the influence its garnering for itself

I liked my ps3 and ps4 back in the day but I'm fully converted to PC now, i was considering getting the ps5 but fuck that shit now

I dislike censorship as must as the next guy but using violence as an argument against underage girls being sexualised only shows that you are incapable of justifying said sexualisation of undergage girls.

Both issues are not the same thing. Acceptance of one does not mean acceptance of the other.

And the fact that you use the notion that men in an idealised form (men, not underage boys) to justify your disdain for a policy involving underage girls is truly bizarre.



PS5 news as so damn good, quick let's make bad articles about Sony.



this will just enrage all the lolicons

While this specifically isn’t a huge deal to me, I really hope the censorship doesn’t grow and expand, Sony having bad relations with most AAA western developers, as well as Sony censoring things like violence and harsh. I can understand not wanting to putt nubile young looking girls in games, but that should be the harsh limit. Sony has no reason to their first party and third party partners that they have to gimp their games in any way. It might help keep the names of some Sony staff clean, but it would inevitably ruin PlayStation.

Probably with trying too hard to avoid offending people is that the effect never fails to snowball and turn things like entertainment into utter trash. South Park demonstrated this perfectly many years ago.

This is considered a good article . . . Also if this is negative article in your eyes, these are literal words from sony themselves.

It will certainly an interesting subject to future scholars how the sexual liberation of the 20th century will be completely undone by the 21st century.

If they can talk and research about this topic. The undoing of the sexual revolution is one thing, but I see the return of ideological restrictions on science. Some researchers are reluctant to share their research on differences based on biological sex because they fear backlash. And that is worse in my opinion.

Whatever the reason brought forward, people take issue with restricting the freedom of artistic decisions made in their prefered art form.

These restrictions are nothing new by the way. Books, imagery, music has always been restricted based on "inappropriate" content, be it the depiction of religion, sexuality or violence in a context deemed inappropriate.

As an example, to this day the photographs from World War One collected under the title "Krieg dem Kriege" draws regular opposition if an exhibition is made, as the content is deemed inapropriate. Hell yeah it is, because showing the war for what it really does is apparently inappropriate.

Not something I approve of, developers shall be free to release what their vision is, we already have rating board for the overly sensitive over pixel porn or violence.
