It's all the cartoon tits. Wouldn't want anyone to go raping their screens (however big or small) and filing a lawsuit against Sony for enticing them.

Literally one second after I clicked that video I was glad I did.

Agreed. I feel way better now.

Not surprising after Sony nuked Omega Labyrinth. I feel bad for the vita but I hope niche developers just drop support for the sony platform in general with the way things are going. Bring it to PC!

Underboob is bad.... Sony is on my poop list for sure. I will think of that Game Paradise game especially with the Golf Story discount code.

What the Fuck is Sony doing? I mean... who has a stick shoved so far up their ass that upon seeing this benign image, they say "no, no no, this is just too far."

As someone who lives in California, I agree with this *depressing laugh*

 

I live in the state where everyone is offended by something (which is really annoying), and now I guess that includes uncensored anime characters....  :cry:

Right, because the flyover states don't ever have issues with sexual content and have never been involved in trying to censor television shows or radio broadcasters or films...give me a break.

Sony gets weird ideas in their heads sometimes.  Remember back in ye olden days when they decided that older ports and 2D games would make their consoles "look cheap" and cracked down on published that did specialized in that?  That's when Working Designs died, I remember.

You felt the need to be offended for literally no reason.  Bible belt has its' own problems, but Sony isn't HQ'd anywhere near there, so really, why?

Because where employees happen to live and work has very little do to with how high level decisions are made.  Whether you want to admit it or not, there is far more of a censorship culture in places like the midwest and south where various "religious" organizations have a stronger hold and have been trying to quash sexual content in media for literally decades.  Do a quick search of FCC complaints over the past decade and you'll see that an overwhelming majority of them aren't from California or New York.

LOL whether I want to admit it or not? You sure like to make arguments over things nobody was talking about to cement yourself into a conversation. Take your shit over to resetera.

Once again, f**k off and look elsewhere to stroke your ego. I'm done with you, kthxbye.

Can you try to apply this rationale to how anime video games are perceived? This isn't the Super Bowl Halftime Show where people are going to get triggered by Janet Jackson's tit. Good ol' boys ain't calling the FCC over the latest Senran Kagura game. This new wave of puritan censorship is Sony just trying to protect their brand since they're riding the wave of PC culture while simultaneously pushing totally non-threatening blood and gore.

Here's the thing, this is all anticipatory on Sony's part and is in large part driven by their perception that social forces in certain portions of the United States as well as government institutions like the FCC, the FTC and the judiciary have become far more conservative in the past two years.  Nobody in California is calling for Sony to do this and frankly, California and New York are liberal bastions that are home to organizations that actively fight censorship of manga, anime and video games like the National Coalition Against Censorship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Profit is the only God to Corporations.  If there's a nickle more to be made by catering to the "Cartoons are for children" crowd over the anime fanservice crowd, then that's just what they'll do.

I could've sworn I read some where talking about how there's another clause in Sony new policy that prohibiting publisher from disclosing Sony as the source of censorship.

That's true. There have been way more censorship attempts from the right wing over the course of video game history.

They cracked down on RPGs too. Part of this was because of Bernie Stolar imposing his will on the video game industry. He recked havoc during his time at Sony and Sega. 

 

I don't get why such heavy censorship if the rating matches the content. Might be time for the smaller companies band into something larger. I don't see Sega/Atlus's Catherine getting this treatment (knock on wood that it even comes out in the US...).

Sony is censoring all the tiddies to distract you from the fact they pulled out of E3..

 

WTF are they doing?  :-

Had it not been for the murmurs about backwards compatibility I would have figured this would be happening because the company was trying to figure out how to tell people there was going to be no optical drive on the PS5, and decide on whether to commit to it or not.  Like why come out with this announcement so far in advance?  Something is brewing, for better or for worse. I worry about this stuff all the time since you know that fully digital is the direction where all the software pushermen want to go. 

 

I suppose there is another good chance that Sony wasn't happy with the delays, the setup, the pausing, and the live feedback during their 2018 E3 performances though.  It could also be that they want more control over their messaging just like Nintendo direct.  One way or another, this has to be happening because they want complete control over their PS5 reveal.

I took it as all (or almost all) of the unannounced titles they're working on being for PS5. So without revealing that they've got no games to show. Don't forget they do still have a number of big 1st party releases that have been announced, and it seems like they're moving to an approach of announcing release dates shortly before a game hits. We could see quite a few big games next year as they keep the unannounced stuff under wraps.
