So.. there’s no crack on the PS4 🍑 this is OUTRAGE!! Jk

You mock, but it's beyond ridiculous that games on PS4 are now getting censored, and if I had bought the game for that system, and would now find out it was a butchered release, I'd return it to the store and demand my money back, and buy it on XBO instead...

Sony needs to stop with this new conservative censorship BS. America's selective outrage when it comes to T&A, compared to embracing ridiculous amounts of extreme violence, is just ridiculous.

The frightening this is, is that this is not instigated by the "Right Wing". What is scary is that the "Stupid Left" not the left but the feminist and sjw lunatic left are the ones pushing companies to follow this.

If you want to see this satirised, then watch a youtube vid titled Jonathan Pie Obsession Oppression it puts this cretinous argument to rest.

In short, tell Sony, knock this STUPID attitude off or lose money, YOUR choice SONY

I don't know whether to laugh or cry... What's the world coming to?!?

sampsonon1908d ago

I'm still trying to figure out why people care.

whothedog1908d ago

Cause its pointless censorship. Its like buying music that bleeps out the curse words.

Why even censors it? It's just a butt crack. In our mature movies and shows they show nudity all the time and this is a rated M game...

RememberThe3571908d ago

Right? Why would Sony have an issue? The game is Mature...

DaDrunkenJester1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )


I mean the "western" culture is obsessed with shows like Game of Thrones that shows sex and nudity every 5 minutes. It also has rape, murder, torture and the whole 9 yards.

Saying it's censorship for the "western" culture is a piss poor excuse.

annoyedgamer1908d ago

Titanic (1997) PG-13 has more nudity. Its not considered mature.

DaDrunkenJester1908d ago


Haha yep! I remember seeing that in the theater when I was 7... my parents told me to look away during the nudity and sex. I of course didn't.

kreate1907d ago

I really want to see this butt crack ....

This is false. American ps4 version of game is not censored.
Germany censor board guidelines ensure all European version including xbox 1 version are censored.
This is not sony doing it but capcom following European union rules as it needs to clear german censor boards to distribute.
This is for all game not only dmcv. All american and european versions of several top games differ.
Mods need to change title to reflect this.

Sorry, but this is untrue. Here's footage from the American PS4 version. Equally censored.

This scene isn't censored in the Xbox One version anywhere.

gam3r_4_lif31908d ago

@ littlezuzu Dude your full of shit and not helping. Stop defending this crap by posting misinformation

isarai1907d ago

You got proof? cause Abriael does to support the opposite, so why did you just make this up for no reason?

beulahland1907d ago

@littlezizu nice try, you've failed.

gamer78041907d ago

you need to research before you call something else false, it is indeed censored in the US version as well.

If games are to be considered art then this kind of censorship needs to stop. If Sony's new policy can be this strict it and be applied to a game as big as DMCV then it can be applied to Cyberpunk 2077.

This makes me worried about sex scenes in games like Dragon Age 4. Could Mass Effect and Dragon Age even be re-released on PS4 now? Not a fun topic to think about.
