I dont know if this has been said, or confirmed by Rockstar but I noticed a few censored parts in the Jp version of the game. If I had known before hand, I would have bought the NA version. The first time I realized this was the torture scene. I remember while waiting for GTAV to come out in Japan, ppl were saying how the torture scene was a bit much. So I braced myself once it came but all I got was Trevor looking at the tools, the screen fading in and out to black, and the guy talking. That mission was so ridiculous, there was almost no point to cut back to Trevor since I saw nothing happen, just the guy spilling the truth because of some imaginary torture. I also noticed when you take the prostitutes to a secluded area, it automatically goes to one option and the camera becomes unmovable and sits behind the car at a low angle. I then thought what the hell else has been censored? I noticed the censoring later in the game but I remembered the mission where the paparazzi and Franklin where taking pics of 2 stars, and I thought, why the hell was the female star so mad? She was just talking to a guy outside on the lawn. Only to find out on the net that that was a controversial sex scene. Now I understand why she was so mad lol. 

I dont even see why they put a Z rating if they were just going to censor stuff. Im really disappointed that I waited 3 more weeks for this to come out in Japan only to find out it was gimped. I looked for and saw no info about the JP version being censored. I enjoy living in Japan but I will think twice before buying a Z rated western release here.

 

The reason I waited was for 2 reasons, my gf can read the subtitles and DLC with imported games is a pain. When and if the PC version comes out.... Ill get the NA version. Now Im wonderiing if the Japanese save file will be usable on an NTSC version. Still fun, just kind of killed my motivation to keep playing knowing that more unknown censorship may be present.

Hmm this is actually odd how the other versions didn't get censored, but damn that sucks man.

I heard that there won't be any marijuana in the japanese version because of Japan's extreme stance on weed.

Even though there was something in the weed when T and M had hallucination, it was not cut. In Franklin`s safehouse I saw the option to do it but I didnt smoke it.

We dont know that yet. My comment was completely neutral.

 

Theres another part in GTA V which I thought was a glitch but it might be censorship again. When Trevor is at the safehouse in Vespucci Beach, he pulles down his pants and shows his dong to Wade`s(?) cousin. Except when he pulls down his pants, he still has his pants on.

Yes, that is censorship at play. In the original version you get to briefly see his penis.

 

EDIT: What was the scene like for you when you first get to play as Trevor? Was he banging a biker chick? I'm guessing they censored that too.

Really, they censored the torture scene, this coming from a country that produced Battle Royale, Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead, Imprint - master of HorrorÔdishon(audition)Grotesque (Japanese)Guinea Pig series (Japanese)  

 

And I haven't even got to the anime examples yet

 I had posted this in Gamefaqs and someone said the same about T`s penis. Dont think Ive ever seen a penis in a video game lol. They at least could have used mosiac like they do with porn.  

There was no banging of the biker chick! Theres already so many strange scenes that look like they are missing someting. This is really killing my motivation.

Im now at the car stealing missions for the FIB. The ingame videos I know I can watch on youtube or something though I would like to see the real thing the first time around. Japan, youve let me down!

Seriously, censor the western stuff but not our own. Jeez they made a rating system for a reason.

I wouldn't be surprised if the strippers are no longer topless during private dances in the Japanese version.

I wouldn't be surprised if they sported a large bush down there.. but anyways.. that sucks dude. The only reasonable censorship is when you can choose between the censored and the original version yourself.

Don't forget penis tongues in Apocalypse Zero, monster vaginas in Wicked City, and then the countless amounts of incess that goes on in A LOT of anime series.
