Idea Factory International has announced another delay for the western versions of Super Neptunia RPG on consoles. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will have two “slightly modified” CGs, while the Switch and PC versions remain uncensored.
This keeps seemingly happening on a weekly basis and it's GETTING OUTTA CONTROL! Sony has already stated through implication this policy of censorship will continue into the PS5. I feel sorry for the developers, a delay is not only lost money but a cost itself.

They pick on the big guys and the little guys, and it's up to us gamers to force Sony's hand and make them stop this anti-consumer behaviors!!!!!! Or face the consequences!!!!!!!!!!!

I like how you knew no one would give a shit about Neptunia being censored, so you didn't mention it in the thread title and pulled a picture from Final Fantasy XIII out your azz hoping no one would notice and make people think FFXIII was the censored game.

I know that's what you did because that Img isn't in the article, and it's clearly a picture of cocoon.

Such an unbiased and well made poll, well done!

While censorship does suck i simply get these games on other platforms and use PS5 for exclusives.

Is there a way we can go back in time and have Sony censor FFXIII out of existence?

Reported Voost for these constant console war, Sony-bashing threads.

I hate censorship as much as the next guy, but this is extremely unlikely to be the cause of the delay.

The changes are minimal and likely have been ready for months. Idea Factory just does some light editing/cropping. That's hardly a month or delay worth.

Sony the only company mentioned in this thread, what console war?

Censorship is currently a hot topic in the industry, just because you don't like it doesn't mean it shouldn't be reported. If this thread was made as is by any other user you'd like the Op and agree with it. Not whine about another game being censored and DELAYED because of it.

Threads in last two weeks:

"New Policy: Sony (or a user reporting you) can now change your PSN name without notice if they think your tag is offensive"

"Sony is self sabotaging themselves with deep censorship and anti-consumer polices for no logical reason, and the top approves. (Do you agree?)"

"Sony seems to be heading all in on anti-consumer practices"

"NIntendo and Sony stock drops 3% in light of Stadia announcement"

im just saying you may want to tone down on the bashing.

Only site staff can give users tags. That tag is more of something making fun of him.

I think all the members of this forum should tell Voost that we're here for him in his time of need. I'm praying you get your personal life back on track. I can't imagine how painful it is for you right now. Hang in there

Can you please make a thread about MS changing offensive gamertags too to be fair, thanks.

I don’t know that mods care about this sort of behavior. It’s pretty blatant and voost has been doing this sort of shit for a long time now. As Afro mentioned above, the fact that voost used a Final Fantasy image to mislead everyone just goes to show how far they will go to create FUD around the Sony brand while propping up Microsoft and Google.

Threads like these gives the site a bad rep but since GAF is so thin on content I guess they have a reason to exist.

Why does it have to be delayed to add two light bars? Seems like it would be a quick change.

Man, these Voost topics are terrible. I fully agree that censorship is damaging gaming but these fan boy/console war topics are taking away from the issue. This reads like someone who doesn't care about these issues and is just using it to fan a flame war against Sony.

On topic: I do expect Sony will keep the censorship going into next gen. I will hold off on buying a PS5 until I'm confident Sony will cease meddling over the rating boards.

Localizations of quite a few Japanese games on the Wii U and 3DS were censored to the point of hurting the games for me so I waited until it was clear the issue was resolved before buying a Switch. Hopefully Sony will do the same but I suspect Sony will keep censoring until they start slipping from the strong lead they have. I bet Sony will have much stronger competition next gen as the Wii U and Xbox One did not put up much of a fight. Whatever Microsoft does will surely be better and the Switch is going strong!

FFXIII sucks every bit as Neptunia. That's like covering a turd in vomit.

I think you need a good balance...voost does make some valid points from time to time even if the Sony centric people fail to admit it.

The counter balance would be a the last word thread which is pretty much the internet version of moving the goal posts to win an argument.

Honestly, I don't give two shits about the game in question whatsoever but in general, Sony should stop with the censoring bullshit. It's simply ridiculous.

Reporting and ignoring this guy. I'm fed up of this crap.

Just one piece of advice to VK: astroturfing is about being subtle.

You know if you stop replying in the threads they move down the pages, but when you reply you bump it back up to the top and give it more exposure. Right?

I love the astroturfing stuff. Bish accused MS of it one time as an excuse to ban everyone that said anything good about Xbox, or anything anti-Sony, and here we are years later still accusing everyone of astroturfing.

I guess some habits die real hard.

There are no astroturfers here and @EviLore would sniff them out and hunt them down, if they did exist.

It’s getting stupid to see in every thread now.

So no arguement against his point,? Just an attack on the user?

Im not sure what you hope to accomplish with that, but I’m sure in your mind you proved it.

Good job,

I'm not going to lie, I think the first XIII is alright for a one time playthrough. Not much replay value though. Just pretend the other two don't exist.
I might be Satans spawn, but I kinda liked XIII-2. I had fun with it. The whole trilogy feels shallow for an FF game, but I still enjoyed it.

It was better then many other non FF named RPGs from that gen.

Folklore for instance.

Would you rather play Folkore or FF13?

I think we all know where that poll is heading.

Even if you want to say FF13 was bad, there weren’t much better at the time.

The RPG really died last gen and got reincarnated into this gen.

You’re seriously unbelievable. You have been digging just to talk shit about Sony which is very weird. You don’t have anything better to do? Are you still living in 2006 mate? This bollocks is way done and please, we don’t need this kind of toxicity here.
