So the Switch version will still have those scenes in the game? Well, I guess I will choose Nintendo over Sony for this game.

Yeah, at some point the two companies swapped stances and Sony started censoring and Nintendo's position became that third-parties can include what they want as long is it passes the relevant ratings board.

Done supporting Sony tbh. Their 5 exclusives are not worth it

I'm not wasting my money on anything PlayStation anytime soon. This game is already on Steam uncensored.

One of the reasons my last PS was PS3. Also the reason why I'm forgoing the FF7 remake despite how much I want to play it, instead I'll just wait for the pc version no matter how long it will take. Done supporting Sony.

Yet today's leak of The Last of Us 2's (spice to say the least) scene is more graphic and hardcore than anything a Japanese company would put out is okay says enough about the hypocrisy.

Pretty much. They need to knock it off.

Gotta love Sony's double standard anti-JP censorship. Anime boobies are bad but some sex scenes from TLOU2 are good. There's seriously something wrong with Sony and it's ironic that it originated from Japan. This shows how poisonous western sensibilities can be. Everything is okay as long as Japan doesn't do it

Their white knight brigade typically uses consent in their attempt to defend Sony. Those anime girls are groped against their will while the realistic-looking Gerald from The Witcher bangs hookers and lovers alike under consent.

Do the censored scenes from Aokana involve nonconsensual groping? Because if not, that one particular argument no longer stands.

aside from the obvious which are the h - scenes on the PC versions . off the top of my head i can only think of two scenes that they might of removed and spoiler[thats all 4 of them getting changed in the bus and the protag spotting rika changing across from his room]I saw worse in the remake in ff 7 with the don Razz dont know how they pick and choose whats ok and whats not.

i will never buy anything that has been censored - i don't mind it when it is designed with all ages mind, but when they censor it, it's impossible for me to support(I was so scarred by the butchered attempt by Konosora, I vowed never again)

But on the other hand, I don't think it's fair to blame Sony, they simply did not plan to have over 18's stuff on their platform, therefore they are not equipped to accommodate them. Imagine the lawsuits from parents

I have the original Aokana and I will not pay the new version, but to blame Sony and boycott seems a bit much.

Seems kinda par for the course these days with a lot of Japanese multiplats to just default to the Switch version just in case Laughing

Stop lying to yourself. PS4 came out in 2013. The censorship started in 2018. You had no intention of buying it to begin with.

I'm not quick to buy when stuff comes out. I may have been relatively fast with ps3 but that's solely because of all the Tales titles that came out(Graces, Zillia). Had an interesting enough game come on it, I may have gotten ps4 too, but two-three years ago those plans were shelved indefinitely after sony's antiques, besides Berseria released on pc too. I even had ps plus sub until year and a half ago but I let it lapse.

Trust me, FF7 remake alone would have been enough for me to warrant to get the console had I not been mad at Sony. I played the hell out of the original.
