Ok, so I've been working on this for much longer than I thought it would take but it's finally finished.

Seeing as this thread is dying down with no real hope of a solution from Naughty Dog themselves, it's time to get organised, so I've created a blog, with accompanying Twitter ID and Facebook Page for:

"SCE Uncut"

 

The aim of which is to raise awareness, get followers (much easier than convincing people to sign a petition) and then get attention from the gaming press and make them see that far from being isolated incidences of censorship, this is actually now part of SCE's business plan to give the entire EU Germany's gimped version of games.

 

please check it out, give me feedback, suggestions etc, follow the twitter, like the facebook and, most importantly, let your friends and other people know. The reason this hasn't blown up bigger yet is because most people just aren't aware it's happening.

I've written posts for an intro, for each game (twisted metal, god of war: ascension, the last of us), a 'how to help' page, and a 'future' page looking at games yet to be released.

All the info is on the tumblr blog, with the twitter and facebook purely as an easier way to get followers and clearly show how much support the campaign's getting.

Hope you guys like it, i've spent my entire weekend writing this up!

I'm going to post on a couple of other forums tonight, but if any of you are on Neogaf it would be great if you could post something there, it's a pain to register with and might get taken more seriously by someone with more than 1 post to their name!

Thanks


Supported and shared with everyone i know!

This is why ND nerfed the PAL version:

Awesome stuff, I'll link to the petition in my 'how to help' page (didn't want to make a petition of my own as I thought at this stage it's about getting numbers, and people sitting on the fence are more likely to just click follow or like as they're probably already signed in on other tabs! But I'll put it there so there's choice, and I'll sign it too of course Smiley Happy

"The changes were made at the discretion of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe out of respect for cultural variance across the PAL region."

But they've already produced a standalone version for the UK... surely a gore unlock DLC wouldn't cost them anything?

 

They don't even have to pay money to Sony for Title Updates. 3rd-party devs have to pay $40k per Title Update.

PR version of 'Because of standards in Europe'. I guess they got a bit worried once they realised that we know Europe isn't a single country Smiley Tongue.

They have an interesting take on respect. Apparently in this case, 'respect' means, hide the fact it was edited and put out a misleading PR statement (SCEE) to trick people into buying it.

I'm still really bummed out about the false advertising **** they pulled off with this game. I still enjoyed it, no doubt about that. One of the best games I ever played. And I still enjoy the Multiplayer a lot and don't mind it THAT much that some gore is missing... but i'd still like to have the more realistic feel to it and wanna have a uncensored game when they advertise it as such... I hope this petition has any effect, even tho I probably own't benefit from it since I'm in Germany D:
