I can tell you exactly what they are actually editing...

 

http://gta.wikia.com/Americantravelguide.net

 

That site shines a really bad light on Europe, and SCEE has no sense of humor.

 

Also, there are radio, TV, and billboard ads for it as well, so this is the best explanation I can come up with.

The delay doesn't really bother me, I wasn't going to be able to get it until the 14th April (that's when I will have the money for it).

I'm sure that was in IV though?

and I live in the UK, so we get the same game as the rest of the EU? don't we? or does the UK get zoned differently?

If we're talking about European sensibilities I would say they are NOT censoring the penis scene. Europe is mostly not uptight about nudity, certainly not in a sauna context which is a normal social and family setting over there. It's more likely some of the text and speech content in the Internet, Radio, and TV is too politically incorrect and insensitive in some way. Nudity OK, bad attitude not OK.

How come you are so quick to attack people here ? I would say that STEVE124 is doing the sensible thing. It is obvious that the European version of EFLC will now be censored in some ways so if you are a European PS3 owner it would be a stupid mistake to buy the European version of EFLC.

 

Now you obviously don't think there is anything wrong with Rockstar delaying the US version for the PS3 or the PC version (which is not being altered in any way) just because some guy at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has "sexuality issues", but that is no excuse for you to come in here calling people "immature". I would personally recommend that ALL European PS3 users cancel their pre-order till they know what the final product will be and if possible look into purchasing the US version.

Maybe so, but you all don't have to get all overly dramatic for a two week delay. How long was IV's delay? And to think a couple months ago we thought it was a 360 exclusive hoping for it to come to us. Now im not quickly attacking you all, i just dont see a point for drama, 3 weeks eh ok maybe a fuss, and yes PC should be released first since there in the clear, but no drama tounge.gif

Before the delay it was coming out right at the start of my spring break. I was so excited to buy it really early in the morning and was gonna just play it all spring break like parachuting and all the fun stuff. Now I have to play GTA4 while I wait bored over my spring break.

You are looking at this issue in a very narrow way Emotion98.3 it isn't just about the delay although that is annoying enough. The EFLC is now ready to go Sony Computer Entertainment America do not seem to have a problem with the content, the rating boards of both America and Europe don't seem to have a problem with the content. The only organisation that is having a problem with this content is Sony Europe.

 

Now because Sony Europe seems to have a bee in their bonnet about "fun" it means European PS3 users are going to have to put up with a "reduced" EFLC experience unless they manage to import the game from the US all because some twat at Sony Europe had a sense of humour failure. In effect the European version is pretty much useless to all GTA fans now and they are going to have to go to the trouble, time and expense of some how getting the US version (all assuming it will run on their PS3 I don't know about region coding in these consoles).

 

Now it is fair to say that Sony has every right to decide what should and should not be played on their console after all it is their format. The PC users also have every right to be damn angry about what Rockstar are doing with their version, it is ridiculous to think that a decision by Sony should affect the PC version. There is no excuse for the PC version to be held back and it is right for people to be angry about that. Now fair enough it is only by 2 weeks but there is the principle of the thing, the PC version is just going to be sitting there doing nothing whilst Sony Europe f*cks about "testing" the changes.

 

All I am saying is try and understand that it isn't just about a "2 week" delay, I think people have a right to be pissed off at the way Rockstar and Sony are behaving with all this.

yeah...

 

I think a Hitler's downfall parody would be suitable.

 

 

And a few websites or radio ads taken out won't ruin the game. Same with a pointless scene of nudity.

I'm pretty damn pissed off now also. Whether it's R*'s or Sony Europe's fault, I'm very pissed off. I was going to pick this up on my birthday when I turn 17 (legal age to buy a rated M game in U.S.). On that same day, I also don't have school. My I'm assuming my break and birthday is f*cked up the ass. facedesk.gif

 

I think most people can handle a short delay, but not on the holidays or breaks. Red Dead Redemption is also delayed, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if we don't see Agent this year. This is not just R*, but throughout Take Two. Mafia II is a good example, and Duke Nukem: For(n)ever is the best example ever.

you guys seem to be pissed over just 2 weeks.

seriously.

remember, gta iv was delayed for 6 months, then you had to wait another 8 months for it to come out on PC, and you can't handle 2 weeks?

Well, it wouldn't be a game by Rockstar North if it wasn't delayed. They're just sticking to the tradition wink.gif

Just for the record, PS3 is Region Free when it comes to games, so if anything major is cut out, it's easy to go to Amazon or Ebay and grab the US Version.

 

Regarding US Delay, The Multiplayer Issue stands, if they change the EU version, then it could be incompatible with the US version, none of that leaderboard sh*t (although a very faint point it is), just changing some Radio code or cutscene code would make the game not be recognised by a different version, just like The Lost and Damned on the Xbox 360, where people with the DLC can't multiplayer with EFLC version. So thanks to whatever this is being changed, they have to hold back the US Version to make sure they will still be compatible with each other, simple.

 

As for PC delay, that is a bit of a dick move, but I'm just going to assume Rockstar doesn't want to make a big fuss launching a game then make a big fuss launching a game again two weeks later.

if i said it was unexpected i would be lying. You cant trust r* with anything anymore, everything gets delayed or is crap, great.

So you are really saying that R* can't be trusted any longer because they delay a game? Get over yourself. You're lucky you're getting it all. You're not entitled to it. Games always get delayed. At least it's not as long as GTA IV itself was. Cry on, maybe some liberal will feel your pain and their heart will bleed for you, but in the end, you'll get nothing by crying your way through life.

Wait Sony is part to blame for this. We should really be blaming Microsoft for have a exclusive rights contract for a couple of months if they didn't do that we would be playing it now

People (are) letting a GAME ruin their break? /facepalm

 

And I agree with Emotion. I mean, just be grateful that you're getting it, period. And it's not like anyone is forcing you to buy the game.

As someone that considers myself a pessimist I just realized that I can be way too optimistic at times. When I first saw the title to the thread I thought that there might be a technical issue and that rockstar might be taking the time to fix it instead of releasing another beta product.

 

I think that whoever it was that suggested the PC delay is related to rockstar not wanting to market both versions separately hit the nail on the head, however this seems like faulty logic since some of the ads have most likely already been reserved and are non-refundable. It also seems like most PC gamers that want this probably know that it is coming out already and don't need an ad to convince them to buy it.

 

@numdmind: Why do you neo-cons(see I can make assumptions too) have to drag down any conversation with hate filled political nonsense? Oh wait, I get it: corporations = good; anyone who disagrees with a corporation = bad. I agree that no one is entitled to a game however rockstar isn't entitled to any customers either, it goes both ways.

Am I going to let a video game ruin my break? Actually, yes I will. You see, some people are actually video gamers that have a strong liking for video games. If people can't appreciate that, then they should go back and eat strawberries and cream yogurt while doing yoga. I'm not trying to be offensive to those who tell us not to make a fuss, but there are seriously people who are disappointed with this. Sometimes this gets so bad that people, like CharmingCharlie, lose all interest in the game. With each delay of a video game you actually lose some respect for the company even if it's the fault of somebody else in the first place (Sony Europe).
