Was Batman choking Wonder Woman too much for the US?

Why are there two different statues for the Injustice Collector's Edition? (Injustice: Gods Among Us, iPhone, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

I'm kind of glad Europe got the better's one of those "Once in a blue moon - We got a better Collectors Edition" times.

Can't wait for this :)

I see EU getting better cases and collector's editions all the time lol. I'm constantly finding myself jealous. ;]

I suppose it could be that you like our editions more but then again "better cases" which I'm guessing you mean artwork isn't all that.

Americans usualy get better collectors editions and better deals on them aswell

For example take the Metal Gear Rising edition

The UK got a figure and the game = £99

The US got a massive lamp, a steelbook, dlc, the soundtrack = In Pounds roughly £93

Meaning we were paying more for less...and it happens a lot of the time. Usualy our better editions are games which nobody gives a crap about or games where the US has gotten some equally as good.
vickers500  +   1033d ago

There's been a few collectors editions that America missed out on and got crappier versions of instead.

I don't keep up with CEs as much as I used to, but in recent memory, the Resistance 3 and Saints Row The Third collectors editions (the non-american versions) were far better in their respective countries.

Saint's Row The Third got(in australia I think) cuff links, an ice cube tray with the shape of bullets and some sunglasses. America got some crappy headphones that don't even work on consoles.

Resistance 3 in the UK got a cool duffel bag with a logo, a flask with the logo, some target practice posters, some army men and some playing cards. America got a crappy move/sharpshooter/game bundle. http://www.fromheroestoicon...

I actually ordered the European version even though I live in the US. Free shipping. It actually cost slightly less than the US collector's edition.

And its freaking Wonder Woman?! She's f***ing tough as nails! She'll probably break out of that choke hold within seconds.

Women did ask for equal treatment...and Wonder Women is probably the type that likes being choked anyhow.

Or maybe wonder woman choking batman was too much for the people in UK/EU??
Ever think about that?
MaideninBlack  +   1033d ago
Yes, it should have been Superman choking Wonder Woman. I mean, can Batman really beat Wonder Woman in a fair fight?
Root  +   1033d ago
I thinks it's because Wonder Women in the story is on Supermans side.

It really should of been a statue of whats on the games art where Batman is going for Superman with a kryptonite shard.

Always wondered why Supie doesn't just make a suit out of lead to block kryptonite. I mean it would be so silly easy to make compared with say Batman finding rare/exotic kyrponite shards or building a custom bat jet.

"batman beat hulk,thor"
In what?

And could say that about half of the characters in this game. I mean, how many of them would beat Superman in hand to hand combat in a regular issue of a DC comic?

"A man hits a man: Meh, they were fighting."

Um dude, that's called assault in the real world and you go to jail. This is why you don't reference South Park for your basis of reality.

But yes, it is a socially considered worse to hit a women or child as it should be. Either way, your still getting some jail time if proven.

They are making fun of a real world problem. It isn't just hitting someone. Look at everything.

Kratos has a perfect body of muscles, acts tough, runs around with a skirt and no shirt on. No problem at all.
A female character in another game has big boobs and a skimpy outfit and its "omg games are so horrible! Women are not like that!!! How sexist!" Yet who is cosplaying these same characters and taking it further? Women.

Similar thing here. If Batman was choking Superman, it would be perfectly fine. If anything it would be "cooler"

@Soldierone - If the whole society was built around women having the power I might've agreed with you.

It's not, women still don't get to vote in many countries even.

It's women who have to worry about getting raped for dressing in a certain way, or going home by their self at night. Not you or Kratos.

Here's a word for you - patriarchal society. Google it. Read up.
hellvaguy  +   1033d ago
"If Batman was choking Superman, it would be perfectly fine."

Um no it wouldn't? That's still assault if we're talking about in the real world. In video games, it's a different story because it's just for fun and playing make believe on a cooler level.

I think jeffgoldwin was right, some of you here need to stop using south park and video games as your information source on societal norms and what is actually illegal. Also, you probably will want to go outside sometime in the near future as well.

Soldierone  +   1033d ago
You guys are trying to twist the conversation into something entirely different. The game is about fighting, its about assault. So why is it a problem when its just a statue? No one here said it wasn't an assault.... and guess what, it's a statue about a fake story with fake characters, so technically no one is assaulting anyone and nothing is illegal.

If all you can do is insult someone, then obviously you are the one that needs a bit of education on the subject. Instead of pretending to go outside, how about do a little research on the matter? Completely avoided my other example, wonder why.....

Certain subjects in society give special treatment to certain groups. THATS the argument here, not "its assault." It happens in video games, movies, REAL LIFE, and "outside"

"Kratos has a perfect body of muscles, acts tough, runs around with a skirt and no shirt on. No problem at all. A female character in another game has big boobs and a skimpy outfit and its omg games are so horrible."

Because in America women's breasts are sexual and men's not so much. Just a society norm, who cares? Go to Europe or watch porn if you need to see them so badly.

"Completely avoided my other example, wonder why....."

There I addressed your topic, which was stupidly obvious to begin with, didn't think it really needed to be commented on because it wasn't even worth mentioning.

If hypocrisies, just for the sake of being a double standard really bother you that much, I'll bet this one really burns you up inside: People will be much more offended to see a fat hairy guy wearing a thong, than they would be seeing a hot babe wearing the same thing at a beach. It is what it is. Get over it.

Welcome to the pointless world of "political correct" arguments. The problem is these people don't seem to really understand the concepts of a valid argument. Like boxing / wrestling still exist in the world today, yet they instantly bring the argument to a new setting that doesn't even make sense. Like above all Batman is a vigilante, yet we're instead talking about assault, when it's probably more of a battery situation? How does that make anymore sense than anything anyone else brought up?

I don't think it's too much at all, in fact I think every special edition of a game with so much as a cameo by a female character should come with a statue of Batman choking that character. From Lara Croft to Ms. Pacman. I'd buy them all.

The picture makes zero sense at all in the comic world. Batman is a mere human, whereas Wonder Women has superhuman strength, speed, and flight.

As a collector I'd pist off to see to absurdity of it making no sense at all. What's in the sequel game cover, Batman spin kicking Superman into outer space. No, just no.

Yet another reason why I'm glad I won't be buying this garbage. MK vs DC was censored too. I'll stick to playing MK9. This DC fighting game will flop just like the last one.
aLucidMind  +   1033d ago
Because the EU and US having different statues available to them is indicative of the game's quality lol. Also, Injustice isn't censored; it is a fighting game between DC superheros and is marketed towards superhero fans, no Mortal Kombat fans. Meaning it needs to be marketable to superhero fans of all ages.

If you think this game is being censored, then you don't know what censorship is.

First of all Batman couldn't choke Wonder Woman if he tried.Secondly Wonder Woman has had things done to her that are far worse then simply choking her so I can't see why this should be a big deal.

aLucidMind  +   1033d ago
Actually, he can pick her up; her power doesn't make her heavier.
Psychonaut  +   1032d ago
no but if he tried to pick her up one handed she would break his hand/wrist/arm. common sense, use it. She has super strength. if batman even tried this one she would be heavy as she is a AMAZON, and two batman would be using a lot of his own strength just to do this for a few moments, and if he did attempt this outside of wonder woman breaking his arm, wrist, and hand she would just fly upward.

Maybe she would have common sense and see it as two "Super Heroes" fighting. Something you're obviously missing. If the statue was not a "Superhero" and just an ordinary guy choking a woman then it would be offensive and speak volumes about you as an individual.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1032d ago
Yeah you're right, it does speak volumes about me as an individual.

I'm an individual who is sensitive about the subject of violence against women. If that's a subject you favor then I would suggest that your feelings speak volumes about you as an individual.

And you should probably know that superheroes aren't real.

So the Super Heroes are not real, like you say. And you get offended by a statue of fake characters and fake violence.

I think you have deeper issues then being sensitive about violence to women. How would have you felt if batman was choking a male non super hero, would that have bothered you too?

1OddWorld  +   1033d ago
And while I agree with your comment, I am an American. Being PC is the business model that corporations have to adhere to or they will be publicly shamed and lobbied against. Being PC steps on the rights of free speech. Everything is reverse in America. The oppressed are now the oppressors.

This is simply a game with super heroes fighting. In no way shape or form should you have to be PC. But lobbyists would have crucified the company for it.

This is the logic of ignorance not the US.

Pozzle  +   1033d ago
I think there's definitely a problem on both sides.

Most domestic violence/murders do happen against women (usually at the hands of someone they are close to) and that's something that really needs to be rectified in our society.

But it's also unfair that men are shamed if they are ever beaten/raped by a woman, to the point where many men are too embarrassed to report it to police for fear of ridicule. I cringe whenever I see things like male rape used for comedy (Wedding Crashers and 40 Days/40 Nights, for example) because it just perpetuates the idea that men have nothing to complain about if they are raped/beaten (especially if the woman is "hot") and that's seriously not ok.

KillrateOmega  +   1033d ago
It's Batman (a non-powered human being) versus Wonder Woman (a metahuman gifted with powers from the gods and is essentially the female equivalent of Superman).

Are people really going to fuss over how Batman is choking this crazy powerful woman when she can literally pick him up and rip his arms out of their sockets? Jeez...

The statue doesn't make any fucking sense anyways, I'm glad it was banned and whoever approved that garbage should of been fired on the spot for making something so stupid.

Batman is a mouse next to wonder woman, she wouldn't even be moved a bit by him attacking at full strength and should just rip his head off with a bitch slap.

The only reason bats ever beats or compares to people like supes and wonder woman is because of workarounds writers must make due to his popularity. Like when superman always turns stupid when bruce wayne is around.
Ravenor  +   1033d ago
"According to Lead Designer John Edwards, the plot is meant to rationalize the game's fighting mechanics between characters that would not normally fight one another and explain how Batman can "stand toe-to-toe" with Superman"

From the Wiki,

pay attention, pay attention, pay attention!

Better on PS3 XD If you look the Batman choking Wonder Women is for PS3 and the other is 360.

Yep, don't see why they couldn't show the same system one.
