Do not share anything that is vulgar or use community features to harm or alarm anyone;
Do not share anything that is defamatory or offensive (including anything racially, ethnically, religiously or sexually offensive);
I was going to comment this, most people "shocked" by this are probably from the US. Everyone else whos commented like its whatever, is probably not. Hell even Germans are more laid back with these things and they have stricter censorship especially with videogames compared to most of the rest of Europe.
As an American, now living in Europe I can confirm that the things that are "controversial" in the US are not controversial whatsoever here.
My guess is even amongst Americans, it's more shock at someone actually having the balls to display genitalia in a game rather than shock at seeing a polygonal vagina. I know when someone first linked me to that tweet with the pic, my reaction was "Woah, I wonder how/if Ubisoft got that past the ESRB" and not "OMG a vagina in a video game, how will I ever explain this to my nonexistent children!"
It's an utterly bizarre situation that someone can get banned by sharing a piece of content that is legitimately in a game.
That said, both PSN and XBL have very specific TOS's for sharing questionable content, I would imagine that because screenshot sharing isn't age gated, where buying a game is, is the reason why this can happen.
I think the problem more lies in the fact that she's dead. It's just seems weird to be able to gawk at a dead prostitute's vagina, especially in a game where it seems completely uncalled for. That said, I still don't have a problem with it. I just can't believe Ubi had the balls...or clit to do it, unless it was a lone wolf.
But yea the real issue is that Sony suspends accounts like it's going out of style and I'm fucking sick of it.
Sony is weird when it comes to anything they consider R rated. My son has an account on his xbox called mrfigglefart. He came up with it when he was a lot younger, and giggled nonstop about it. When the ps4 came out he registered for the first time with sony, and they would not allow fart in his user name because it said something about being vulgar. That means if you have some form of fart in your username in a way to avoid the censor they could ban your account for violating terms. So lets hope no neogaf users have something like "iEatFAARRTs" as their user name....
Hoping Ubisoft stick to their guns. Don't really see a need to remove it IMO. It's been fair game to show dick since Dante's Inferno had us battling the Devil's massive schlong. Seems like it should be a thing that works both ways.
I think all you can accurately see are labia majora, actually.
Seriously though, this is ridiculous. I'm all for artistic integrity in games, and apparently they have penises in the game too, but exactly what purpose does it serve? Kids have plenty of wank bank material without needing vag in their games, which makes it seem like some dev slipped it in for the lulz.
Edit: ok slipping it in pun aside, if all these vids of nudists roaming around are watchdogs too, then the upskirt shot is meaningless. They are in your face with the nudity... Sony just doesnt want it on PS feeds apparently.
Oversight by ESRB maybe, unless this still falls within the M rating.
Thinking about it, I remembered the South Park episode "Good times with weapons". I didn't think much of it at the time, but looking back it was completely accurate. Society doesn't care about violence, but it screams in anger whenever a bit of nudity or sex is shown. It's weird.
