^ This. Having to reply to an answer with obvious BS like this because of SCEE just so they can say they covered this issue and aren't silent about it is just sad. And they shouldn't have given a deathline for the last patch either. "End of July, early august" time period is long over now. Well, not that I'm surprised anymore.

 

Edit: Did SCEE became SNEE around the time "Twisted Metal" came out? That could be a possible explanation why SC...SNEE (Sony Network Entertainment Europe) changed their ways for the worse. Smiley Surprised

Did some research:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Entertainment_Network

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twisted_Metal_%282012_video_game%29

 

Twisted Metal came out around 1 month after "SCEE" changed to "SNEE". A coincidence? Or possibly the reason why they suddenly started to censor games in the whole EU... Seems like they didn't just unify all their services but also all the disks, that's just my guess though. (Making 1 disk for the whole EU instead of a separate censored version for Germany if needed)

I know this was discussed before but there's people who thinks Oceania continent (AUS/NZ) is a seperate category from PAL regions. I would like to clear that up that AUS/NZ have received the same game as where EU received, DLC from the UK store should work from AUS/NZ or the otherway round unless there were major changes (such as Saints Row IV).

 

Another question:

 

Did any one manage to get a special execution with a machete?  I'm curious if the uncensored version is a "beheaded execution" whereas in the censored version (AUS here) just sticks it at the enemy's back.

Directed at ND as a whole, not MacGruber as an individual:

 

Silent from before launch, decieving people into thinking they were getting the full version of the game they paid for bu labelling the game "100% uncut", only admitting it was heavily censored outside the US once the customer base discovered what had happened and kicked up a fuss, and not even apologising for giving millions of people TLOU Lite.

And once again, Europe is NOT a country. The reply of "It came from standards in Europe" is utter carp. Why not censor the american version based on the fact it comes from "standards on planet Earth"? Same difference. Just because one country out of around 50 needs a censored version, it should never apply to the whole rest of the continent.

 

If one single state in America had germany's censorship laws, would you have censored the game for the whole of the USA? Of course not. Double standards.

 

Without Europe, Naughty Dog would go bust within a year. Show some respect to the people who keep you in business.

This.

Very well articulated monkeybutler100.

I hope MacGruber and the rest of ND read this post particularly - gets to the heart of the issue.

And unfortunately I don't think ND will ever give us a transparent dialogue about why this happened, as their mouths are zipped by Sony.

It's time to put pressure on SCEE (or SNEE? I wasn't even aware of that, will check it out), with regards to this I have something in the works I'm going to post this weekend, pointless trying to get anything done this week as all the press are focused on Gamescom.

The UK has a separate SKU/disc. ND hasn't explained this one...

Apparently the UK has some non-existent censorship law that 0% of the population know about apart from ND.
