Uncharted gets totally censored in Japan

Uncharted has guns. And guns shoot people. Shooting people causes people to bleed. Not in Japan, apparently! When played on a Japanese PS3, Uncharted is bloodless. Sure, Japan has done this before with games like Dead Rising and Resistance. It doesn't matter where you bought Uncharted as the game's still bloodless. The origin of the disc does not matter, but rather, the hardware does.

Nice way to support developers outside of Japan. Don't say its to protect your own people, you don't censor "your own" (japanese made) games from the japanese public. (Heck just look at the violent child pornographic CARTOONS you release to "the public" constantly) What's the matter Japan, afraid of some competition?

Is that why you won't buy Rachet and Clank and have to censor violent games from OUTSIDE of Japan, but NOT your own games? Why don't they censor games like Dead Rising or Resident Evil or Devil May Cry in Japan? Those games have blood, violence, and guns in them. Why? Because they are domestically created games.

Foreign Developers, Sony Does Not Support You.

@3.1: This isn't about the UK or USA.
What I have said is true.

@17: Because Ninja Gaiden is a domestic game.

@18: Games are art, and someone mutilated someone else's art.

The game was meant to be played WITH blood.
Either change the rating of the game for your region, or ask the developers to make changes. Since the same game will play differently in different regions on the same hardware, this smells of censorship.
Just remember Sony what happened to Nintendo with MK sales because of censorship. What goes around, comes around.

Japan isn't as hypocritical in its rating system as the US is. Both violence AND sex receive adult ratings here. If a game has excessive blood and violence, it receives an adult rating.

KidMakeshift3447d ago

Japan is 100% anti-gun. Even the cops aren't allowed to carry guns. Also, blood and gore is somewhat taboo in Japan. The UK is the same way to a certain degree (gun trafficking).

Japan is less censored than most countries. They come up with the freakiest stuff in the world...Takashi Miike movies, hentai...Uncharted should be rated eC (early childhood) in Japan with as much uncensored stuff they have there

nurayi3446d ago

I'll give you takashi mikke movies I mean audition left me in a state of shock for days. but the japanese are much more lenient on some things than others. Sex is perfectly fine in every aspect, Guns on the other hand.

In Japan, all games are bloodless or at least red-bloodless. It's a part of rating. I personally think it's stupid, but it doesn't matter.

The game maker decide to follow Japanese rating and took blood out. It's up to the maker. For example, Ninja Gaiden Sigma decided to left blood and rated for not child (rated for 17 or older). Uncharted could do the same thing if the maker wanted blood.

Japan is not nearly as censored as you all think. The Japanese police are allowed to carry guns. I live in Japan so I think I should know. It is true that they do not have the same gun laws though. You can not just go to a store here and buy a gun. You have to get a special permit to even own a gun here in Japan. The police here do carry guns on them. The security guards do not have guns. They are not police officers though.

Well this is good for people in Japan if it means selling more units of the system and games. I think Ratchet is the same way with the music. If you put the american version into a Jap PS3 you will hear more electronic music vs a US PS3 will play disco. I guess developers are putting multiple versions on one disc. I personally think this is a good thing.
