I found a vagina in Watch Dogs 2 and Sony suspended me (Update: Ban lifted)

Barbie/ken-doll bodies are so last fen folks c'mon!!

Seriously though, I understand if people are offended by the implications of 'indecent exposure' in games but hey as long as it knows it's an adult-targeting game and handles it properly, then what its assets emulate are fine in my book, there is a difference between nude and lewd. Question is if Ubisoft actually authorized this or it was some stray dev. (Veeeery high chance this was not unanimously planned lol.) Also, ESRB didn't catch this??

Anyhow, sucks for you OP!! Thankfully the suspension's only a week but it's still a week...the fact that Sony tracked you down from an online post does sound a wee boorish but, well, it's touchy, this kinda thing..!!

It's been shown in this thread that it was noted by ESRB.

The real issue is OP being banned for a bullshit reason.

Why is extreme violence okay but nudity is not?
We can kill a shit load of people in the most graphic ways possible but not show any skin?
It's not like there are any sex acts occurring, they're just nude.
So the nude human body is inherently sexual?
What a dumb fucking policy, it's in the fucking game.

As for "first vagina in a game," don't you briefly see a hairy pussy in Red Dead Redemption when you walk in on a couple having sex?

Granted you're not seeing labia and the actual vagina and stuff. But still.

If you posted it to twitter via PS4, so that it shows in your PSN community feed, you fucked up.

The game is rated appropriately for this type of content. I don't see a problem with it. This isn't Hot Coffee Mod 2.0.

OP shouldn't have been banned for something that was normally present in the game.

Patch incoming? lol.

Doesn't have a vagina in the game make it a rated 'A' for the base game?

People can always buy the game and not patch it? Wonder if it will be like GTA SA hot coffee and explode the internet then make the game rated 'A' lol

I believe any game made before 1997 is "essentially cave man art."

I looked on the ESRB website and nudity is there soo

Content Descriptors: Blood, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Drugs

I guess it's ok? Don't know why sony would ban you

----

If the image was posted here and on twitter, why is Sony banning you?

Maybe when you link accounts there's an agreement?

Because you posted on... Twitter? Wut? How do they even know it's you? Or was it through the PS4 sharing/twitter connection thing?

Kind of stupid that they'd ban you for this regardless, but at least it's just a week-long ban and not permanent, I guess... :S

Edit: also, being nitpicky, that's a vulva not a vagina ;)

How could Sony ban you from sharing on Twitter? Those services should be completely seperated as far as i know (i know that you can share directly on Twitter from PS4, but still, you're not sharing on PSN).
The share function on ps4 is used to propagate your Whats New PSN feed. So when you press the share button to post on facebook, twitter, YouTube, etc... it automatically adds that post to your PSN feed so all your PSN friends and followers can see it on their Whats New feed at which point any of them can flag it for Sony to review by hitting the report button.

Well it sucks but the attitude of Sony is understandable.

They banned him for 1 week because he shared it online, through the PS4 share button, with the PS4share hashtag. I mean OP can play whatever he wants, screenshots that, even porn games (if they made some someday) but maybe Sony don't want their image linked to those nudity shots...

I mean I dunno, if you buy a Samsung BR player and share online pictures of your last porn BR pics with the hashtag Samsung, maybe Samsung would like to do something about it, like a ban, if they could.

And I'm 100% for nudity in games, in Europe this games is 18+ (dunno about usa) so nudity, yeah sure why not, as said many time, blowing people's heads but not showing nudity is hipocrit, it's time to stop that hypocrisy imo. As long as the rating fit the game content of course.
