    Because one or two obscure games are able to completely ruin 360's 'family friendly' image, yet shitload of violent shooters won't.

    Logic.

    Of course, I'm sure we can assume that when Saints Row 2 is released, we'll all be perfectly free to run over crowds of people in blinged up combine harvesters, do the pimp side missions and play the flasher mini game just fine.

    But this kind of sick Japanese stuff has got to be stopped at all costs. Panties. The heart of all that's wrong in the world apparently. -_-

    But seriously, they wouldn't dare pull this kind shit with Gears of War or GTA. Yet they readily bully the developers over this? I don't know whether it's due to family friendly bullshit or not, but this is fecking retarded.

    I don't remember the manufacturers of DVD players banning horror movies to make DVD's look "family friendly". You just put it in different sections. The gaming industry has come a long way in becoming socially accepted of late, but I sincerely hope nonsense like this is just another phase to grow out of and not a precedent for the future.

    yea, a short woman with an inferoprity complex, and a girl warring goggles, she is a sercret sadist, but wants people to like her so she plays the role of the dominates.

    than in comes a megalomaniac who just happens to relay like apples, had a hoard of zombies that buttsex each other, she screams at the short woman, who sees an opertunity, kicks her in the cunt, and takes the little angle figurein that falls out of her pocket, she leaves, but comes back a week later and is realy pissed that the little girl stoled it from her...

    shit they should personify companies as moe girls in an borderline hentai and make it a monthly manga.

    That's suicide. If they really do that Xbox dies in Japan.

    The forged statistics from Famitsu will be true soon. Xbox sales will collapse and PS3 will zoom by.

    Trying to pull off the family friendly tactics in Japan, in addition to the space requirements of the Kinect, will really hurt sales.

    Plus, apparently, Microsoft is charging more than double what the kinect actually costs to make. Buying it at $150 dollars is an extreme rip off.

    Lately, a lot of game and console developers are being too obsessed with their ego and "brand new" ideas which has blatantly repelled their own fanbase and backfired themselves..

    Square Enix: For FF14, we'll have this new system where players are limited to only play it for a short amount of hours..

    Staff: But aren't MMORPG players prefer playing it for..

    Square Enix: Shut up! We're doing this as a motivation for our young generations!

    ---

    Namco: For the next Idolmaster, we won't have Ritsuko and Iori but worry not, we'll introduce three boyband gays!!

    Staff: Sir, Iori is one of IM fan favourites, I'm afraid the fans will rage...

    Namco: SHUT UP!!

    ---

    Microsoft: Kinect will be the top best seller console for this era..

    Staff: Sir, we get a lot of negative feedbacks regarding.....

    Microsoft: Shut up! Kinect will be the top best seller console for this era! And good news; we just come up with a new direction to ban all pantyshots in any games. For the sake of bringing moralistic families together!

    Staff: Sir.. Apparently in Japan..

    Microsoft: Shut Up!

    Staff: *Facepalm*

    Microsoft: Shut Up!!

    Well, Miscrosoft didn't do suicide though, they have a quite fair amount of funds to support this policy, even if Xbox dies...

    I just hope it comes out in PFP and PS2

    Consoles = one company in absolute control over what gets released = its get banned

    Trying to keep a more family-friendly image and also avoid controversy? Some people will go crazy if they hear or see something naughty in game and blame the company who made the game and the company who made the system which that game can be played on. Remember the whole issue where a man was arrested for possession of loli-manga?

    Agreed.

    I'm thinking i should take my friends advice and go into plotics i'd compeltely rewrite thing like the digitam millenium copyright act. Would take to long to rite all the changed but suffice to say fansubbing legal downloading of most macross series legal downloading stuff in general legal with exceptions.

    I have two nice ideas for you. All forms of censoring should be banned. All copyrights should expire after some years.

    Actually the second one is involved in it. Basically if a group owns the rights to something and does not distrubiute that item for lets say 10 years nah make that 5 it's cool to download. as for the banning censorship that ones tricky. Since some people migh consider subbing or dubbing an odd form. It's stretching the definition by a large margin but i can see people doing that.

    But i do agree with you. I'd also try and make loli 100% legal as well as loweing age of consent to matcha persons own physiological age in short have it vary from case by case. None of this 18+ BS.

    I'd also institute a thing where people either have a subdermal implant or a Zip drive witha fingerprint lock system that contains a persons entire medical record. Good for emergencies also cuts down on paperwork at the haospital in fact destroys it and last but not least lets us easily customise and individuals healthcare and of course use that in conjunction with the age of consent change.

    Oh and my favorite the Fuck You Law. basically the law says as long as you're not hospitalized from someone actions just deal with it and fuck off.

    All copyrights do expire after some years, the problem is it's a ridiculously long time, as in the life of the author plus at least 50 years, depending on country. Also, the USA is now extending indefinitely copyright for things like Mickey Mouse.
    Copyright law was originally designed to encourage innovation, but now it serves the exact opposite purpose...

    Does anyone know when this region encoding bullshit started? I know the ps3's and psp's don't have them. I had to do a hell of a lot of shit on my ps1 with all the disc swapping to play import/burned games I was to lazy and just had money to burn so I bought a japanese ps2. So did it happen anytime before that?

    Most consoles have it. Xbox, 360, PS2 and PS3 have region code. PS3 only uses it for video playback right now, but that could change.
