The Last of Us still Censored in Europe

The multiplayer-mode in The Last of Us lacks the same amount of blood and dismemberments as in the US-version in Europe.
The developers has yet not responded to this issue. (Culture, Industry, Naughty Dog, PS3, The Last Of Us)

This sucks a bit. Not soo much to whine about it, but it still sucks. The game already has an 18 (mature) rating, so what's the big deal?

In my opinion, I think it's unacceptable. The rest of Europe shouldn't suffer because of this German law.
The developers/publishers didn't even inform us about it, so I never had the chance to import a US-version before being acknowledged about it.

The least they can do is responding to it, but they haven't done that either. They should atleast give us a reason why they just can't patch it.

Entitled whining at its best!

The lack of dismemberments is a minor thing and I suspect it was because it is easier, cheaper and quicker to create a single EU version of the game than have a specific version just for Germany.

If you're really that upset about not having extra dismemberment, then I think you've got more to worry about than video games.

Jdoki: It's not about that I seek some sort of satisfaction in dismember players, it's more of the fact that I don't support censorship at all. I want to fully experience the game the way it was made and knowing that I have not recieved a lesser version than the rest of the world.

It just bothers me that we should recieve a more "kid-friendly"-versi on, it makes us look like wussies...
But what more bothers me is that everyone doesn't care about it.
If it would have been the other way around (censored in the US), there would have been a big controversy.

So I hope you understand why I actually complain about something that shouldn't be such of a big deal. If it would lack dismemberments worldwide I wouldn't mind.
And yes, I am aware that Germany handles most of the gaming shipment/business in Europe but there is still not a reason why they can't patch it up for the rest of Europe.
