Meh... I wouldn't get my panties in a twist over this. This shit has been happening for 30+ years. Its just mass market appeal to western audiences where parents freak out and start a movement against girls with boobs bulging out of impractical armor.

At the end of the day, Sony is a Japanese based company, and in japan things are run totally different. Acts of fiction generally are never censored over there... its not until it comes stateside that they add in mist blurs in a shower scene and crap like that.

Watch enough anime and you will see the difference. The subtitled Japanese versions are usually never censored... its always the US dubbed versions that they censor anything and everything that could be considered "offensive".

1981 American Film "Clash of the Titans" rated PG... and its not the only scene with boobs...

The huge censorship trend really started back in the 80's, along with the "War on drugs". About the only thing that has come from either, are multi-billion dollar organizations that profit from enforcing said rules.

Just remember folks, for every blurry tit, censored swear word, or drug user/dealer going to jail, someone is making a shit load of money off it at your expense.

Strange, isn't this the opposite of their stance on porn in Japan, where their own stuff is all blurred and NA is uncensored?

Of course that wouldn't fly. Nobody wants to see garbage like a trans Max Payne. I'll even include those who are not really trannies but just lonely little losers with otherwise empty and meaningless lives who pretend to be trans for attention in that group. Even if all the real trannies and fake trannies wanted to buy a game like that, there just aren't anough of them for anyone to care. It would be like making a game catering to...uh....hmmm....errr...I can't think of something so uncommon as to only account for .3% of the US population to compare it to.
Also....you don't get to decide what words people use. Your feelings don't matter.
Furthermore..... homophobia? Seriously? That does not mean what you think it means. What you seem to think it means....is not correct. It's just more made up nonsense, likely by the same lazy assholes who brought you Islamophobia. By that, I mean the MSM.
I am transgender, mate.

Where should I start unpacking this little shitfest of yours?

Or, should I even bother?

Naw. Carry on, stay in the 1800s.

My company used to give out free Chick-fil-A every Friday. Then some SJW like Gottfried complained and now no one is allowed to have Chick-fil-A anymore.

Stop trying to force your beliefs on everyone else. If you don’t like a game because the main protragonist is a strong straight white male, don’t f’ing buy it.

My chick-fil-a is more important than your feelings.

And? It doesn't give your opinion more validity, nor less for that matter.

You're free to think and believe whatever the heck you want, but you're not allowed to tell others what they are allowed to think.

Making a product specifically aimed at a very small fraction of the population wasn't a good idea in the 1800s and it still isn't.

I have preferences too that are frowned upon by the mainstream, but instead of demanding games to cater to my fringe sensibilities I understand and respect that I'm in a very small minority so demanding it would be nothing short of entitled.

If you want transgender Max Payne you're going to have to use a mod that does that.

Oh noes, my poor ego. Whatever will I do?
You can have all the ego in the world and it still won't make reality go away.

Now are you going to continue pretending to take some imaginary high road, or are you willing to actually face facts?

Because saying "I'm trans" is not the get out of arguments card you think it is. Your friends engaged in identity politics might bend over backwards to the utterance of those words, but it is otherwise not relevant.

They have to be a troll account. Probably /trannypol/.
Almost every post is about the same sexually charged shit, like a teenager yet on a tech forum. They need to grow up and realise that forcing their narrowminded beliefs here isn't going to work. Great at derailing..

Saw this low-effort post.

Would be better with a play on words like the original. Something like "Nintendoes what Sonyields." You able image editors need to make it happen.
