here's what you see when you try to play a certain scene in the European version of South Park: The Stick of Truth on consoles.
Just means a US import! Longer, but worth it.
I'll be getting the PC version. It's funny that they censored it by putting that screen in there. It's a big middle finger to the rating officials.
They always find a way. Love this show.
So lame. I'm in the UK so I used my U.S. Amazon account to purchase $60 ($50 + $10) PSN credit, redeemed the codes on my U.S. PSN account, and pre-ordered The Stick of Truth. Now I get it uncensored and a few days earlier than the U.K. release.
I'm also in the uk.. But if I was to do that I wouldn't get the trophies on my main account. Looks like imma be importing it from Merica.
Download the game with your US account and then play it with your main UK account. That works on PS3 and PS4, just not Vita.
Yep, I have a UK and US account on the same system and I can play the game with both. I'm past caring about trophies and achievements anyway.
As soon as I see that screen I am going to find a video of the cut scene online... I don't get why they censored it because everyone could find it if they wanted to!
They censored it because some old guy in suit got his panties in a bunch and said "NO! I will not allow you to show this to the people of my country. It must be censored!" That guy is still unaware the internet exists.
Once again the paying customer is screwed over while pirates get to play the full version :(
That's actually kind of funny. Still not buying it though. If I buy it, it will be the cheaper, uncensored US version.
I like how the creators are so elegantly pointing out the utter stupidity of this censorship.
Well Ubisoft just lost another sale Hopefully when they put it onto next gen (if they ever do) they do the uncut version
You do know it's not their fault this game is being censored right?
Actually it was Ubisofts decision to censor it after the Australian version had to be censored. So its Ubisofts, and the Australian censorship boards fault. I urge every gamer in the world, whether affected by this or not, to either write them a nasty letter, or leave a flaming bag of poop on their doorstep, ring the bell, and run away.
I have a question. Why do they have to censor this game, when content in the episodes I watch are much worse? They don't censor episodes but they censor the game.
@Unreal01 Because Southpark is clearly a show aimed at adults, but for some reason law makers still treat gamers like theyre all kids.
It is their fault. They said it was a "marketing decision" aka they wanted more sales so they censored it so kids will buy it.
Well there could one day be a developer that breaks the mold of Kids only ratings and censorship for mature adult titles. Noone is that bold as of yet even Rockstar holds back for the ratings boards. Because it is a big unknown variant of if a game would sell.
They're taking it out on Ubisoft, because they know that their own government won't listen to them.
Are you ever happy? With anything? Ever? At all?
So your happy with this.... I'm happy when devs don't f*** us over
They cut 60 seconds of a 15+ hour game, let's be honest here, you were never going to buy the game in the first place.
So, because they censored it, the game automatically sucks, and doesn't deserve the money you where going to use to buy it? Little harsh, don't you think? Did you not buy The Last of Us because they censored the gore for the Multiplayer in European Version?
Multiplayer is very different then the single player. If it was the single player then fair enough, you have to make a stand somewhere or they'll do it again. " the game automatically sucks " Where the hell did I say it was going to suck...stop twisting my comment. I'd buy it when they bring on a version uncensored or when it's in the bargain bin.
Okay, try and take my "the game automatically sucks" out of context, much? It's 60 seconds of a 20+ Hour game, cry more about it. If you want the uncensored version, then get the PC one, it's unaffected. You don't have to "take a stand" on every little damn thing. If the entire game was censored, I'd be with you on this. But it isn't.
Funny thing is - even if I order the US version and have it delivered with Fedex overnight the game is still cheaper than buying it here in the EU.
Just Cancelled my order from Game UK and ordered from Videogamesplus and its titled Uncensored Version same price it works out at.Sorted
Cheers mate :)
is this the same if i buy it on steam? and if it is, is there a way to purchase the US version on my steam account?
Think it only effects the console versions. PC, from what I understand, is fine.
First I've heard of that, iceman. Any sources?
In this article is states that the PC version is actually censored in certain territories. Namely, Germany, Austria, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong & Taiwan. http://www.pcgamer.com/2014...
thanks for that iceman! hope youre info turns out correct.
So glad I have pre-ordered this on steam. Uncensored makes it feel like a south park game,censored makes it look poop.
Same here😉Pc rulles!!
Sorry if it's been asked before but, is the steam version uncensored in Europe?
Pc version is not censored anywhere in Europe or the USA etc...
I hate unnecessary censorship, but this is quite amusing. I'm glad the developers have made at least some kind of statement of how stupid this is.
Glad I live in the US, but I really hate this for you gamers in the UK. This game looks like it's going to be a great RPG. I cannot wait til Tuesday....Out of all the classes in the game I think I'm going to be a Jew to piss Cartman off ;)
fortunately PC gamers in Europe are ok though
southpark is a despicable series imo, this game is utter shyte
Scott Tenorman agrees.
You're opinion is utter shyte.
The South Park series if you hadn't noticed by now, is viewed by dozens of soccer moms out there as extremely offensive and not for kids. To be honest, I'd disappointed if 'The Sick of Truth' were universally praised for being politely correct. With Trey & Matt behind the direction & voices in the game, it's bound to raise a some heated ire and instant dislike. (It's what they do) lol Gateway MT6706 2008
PC Version it is then
