Ubisoft Removes Vaginas From Watch Dogs 2 After Sony Bans Gamer
Watch Dogs 2

[Update 11/16/2016:] According to the Escapist Magazine, Swizzasaur had his account unbanned by Sony. No explanation or reason given.

 

[Original article:] A gamer was playing Watch Dogs 2. He blew up a gas line. The explosion killed a hooker in an alley. The hooker was wearing crotchless panties and landed in front of the gamer. He took out his camera and snapped a photo of her exposed cooch. He posted the photo to Twitter. Sony suspended his PSN account for a week due to posting a picture of an NPC’s vagina to Twitter. He complained about it on NeoGaf and to other gaming media, so Sony extended the ban to a month.

The tweet below from user Swizzasaur is what caused all the uproar. Warning, the content is Not Safe For Work.

The news spread like wildfire across social media, as is usual with tawdry stories like this. However, the more interesting thing about this whole affair wasn’t that Sony banned someone for a month from playing on the PlayStation Network, it’s that Ubisoft was reached out to by Game Informer, and the publisher’s response wasn’t to get the gamer unbanned but to remove vaginas from Watch Dogs 2, with a rep stating…

“We’re aware that one of the NPC models in Watch Dogs 2 is rendered in a way that is particularly explicit. While Watch Dogs 2 is a mature-rated game, we apologize and will update this NPC model to make it more consistent with other NPC models in the game in a patch to be released this week. “

So the answer to a mature game having mature content that someone posted up on social media and got banned for it, is to remove the mature content from the mature game.

Exposed vaginas were already mentioned on the ESRB’s page for Watch Dogs 2, with the description reading…

“The game contains some sexual material: a man selling child pornography over the phone (no sexual acts or nudity depicted); a strip club depicting pole dancers and topless women; brief instances of male and female full-frontal nudity

And the full-frontal nudity is featured in the game in parts like the nudist colony. There’s a video of the colony below from YouTuber Servan Demir. It’s obviously Not Safe For Work.

It’s a really odd move from Ubisoft because crotchless panties is still more clothing than no panties at all. They’re basically saying that hookers wearing some clothing with an exposed vagina is more offensive than just a bare vagina alone.

They don’t mention if the nudist vaginas will also be removed, but the hooker vaginas are definitely being taken out of the game.

This isn’t the first time that games have been hit with censorship even though they’ve already been rated. In the Japanese release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization they released a day-one patch to censor a bathing scene, and in the Western release of Tokyo Mirage Sessions they removed the pelvic bones from the female characters.

So far, Sony has not appeared to make any statements on why they banned a gamer over a vagina in Watch Dogs 2.

    We talk of regression lefts often here, what does it actually mean to understand why they hate our games.

      Aw. It’d be funny if people flooded Twitter with images of the rest of the nudity in the game, then Sony would have to ban everyone and Ubisoft would have to delete Watch Dogs 2 from reality.

      • Alistair

        That be swell idea i Wouldn’t mind setting up a dummy account i got a few 1 NA, 1 Japanese and 3 UK Account.

        But then i have to go back on a promise of boycotting the game to buy it.

        Dam what to do. The renting blockbusters are no more.

  • Alistair

    Do you Know what ubisoft and sony just did. Pick and choose thhe situation cherry picking.

    They made a 18+ full of nudity then 1 little nudity upsets them that have to go the rest just fine.

    Someone should make a dummy account share a screenshot of a nude male Pissing and see what response you get if you dont get banned then you okay.

    But then it shows Sony and ubisoft are a hypocrites because it a male bum standing pissing.

  • C G Saturation

    *makes game with tons of nudity*
    *someone posts a pic of one instance of nudity, gets BANNED*
    *apologizes and removes that single particular instance*

    I am beyond convinced that there is no end to human stupidity.

    • Alistair

      This not the first time we seen a woman pussy in games Ps2 was infamous showing full frontal nudity the “Larry” Games.

      But that image is much bolder you dont just see her pubic there a open there. It even not consider porn.

      It the context if she was topless but even then LA norie didnt actually show her pussy just her pubic. There were topless too.

      • C G Saturation

        You can bet if it was a guy NPC who got blown up and killed, with his cock visibly hanging out, nobody would care.

        Actually, I take that back. Feminists would probably get triggered and complain about the virtual pixel penis oppressing them. I remember when they tantrumed at a snow phallus years ago.

        • Alistair

          I think the feminists would Ask the guy to cut it down a bit because it could poke they eye out.

  • MONAD

    Watch Dogs 2 is basically #blacklivesmatter: The Game. I wasn’t impressed with the first Watch Dogs, I’m definitely not impressed with this.

    • C G Saturation

      So you start the game in a huge mansion paid for by Soros? And get paid to beat innocent people? Doesn’t sound like much of a game.

      And why would people buy Watch Dogs 2 when they can get paid by Soros to do the same stuff in real life?

  • jagmarky

    I doubt they would’ve given a fuck if he just showed her dead, mutilated body as long as it was fully covered. I swear this world we live in has become fucking twisted!

    • Alistair

      One game comes to mind, LA Norie it didnt have sex but it did have.

      full frontal nudity of dead women not just once a few times, did rockstar cover her bits did sony told them to. No

      I think if sex was added i dont think people would handle it well.

      • C G Saturation

        Well, they had a fit at the whole hot coffee nonsense.

  • Reaper of Salt

    Nuking San Fran is starting to sound really tempting right about now.

    • C G Saturation

      I would like to see California get annexed to Mexico. They seem to really want it too. Everybody will be happy.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Fuck Sony for calling for the censorship of an ESRB approved game. Fuck Ubisoft for giving in and censoring it.

  • durka durka

    FUCKING 2016 END ALREADY YOU FUCK

    FUCK…..

    DAFUQ IS WRONG WITH YOU 2016?

    • It’s like a retarded kid who keeps sticking his fingers in fire, screams loudly in pain, goes to its safe space, eats some cookies, goes back and sticks its fingers into fire, screams in pain, returns to the safe space, and repeats the process ad infinitum.

      • C G Saturation

        It’s like a company that makes a game with nudity then apologizes for it and removes only a tiny portion.

        Or not. I’m trying to emphasize how nonsensical it is!

        • I don’t think anyone can really emphasize how nonsensical this whole thing is. The fact it was already okay’d by the ESRB is what makes it even more nonsensical. Everybody involved (saved for the guy who just wanted to share a photo of a dead pussy) comes out looking like absolute idiots.

          • C G Saturation

            There are no words to accurately describe the plague that is SJW/Sorosism/Regressivism.

        • durka durka

          ” I’m trying to emphasize how nonsensical it is!”

          I think i did that already. Dafuq is wrong with 2016? fuck.

  • LurkerJK

    Sony polices Twitter now ? what excuse do they have for that ?

    at least when EA used to ban users from their games for using the forums with the same account they were actually using an EA service

    • Alistair

      Yes actually that why he got a case against that too. And the misleading ads by sony.

      Let not kid ourselves, if sony did say in the ps4 ads when they talk about the share feature even on their very official Blog and say this “You can use the share feature to record and screenshot share it with your friends. *Do not take screenshots or record any nudity”

      Would anybody buy a Ps4 on that Information I Wouldn’t and Sony knows it. “we better keep that part quite hehehe”

      Btw how many T&C we have to sign up over the years with Sony?

      How many goal post they move? Because this is one of them.

      They claim to the guy it in the T&C and the banned stands a month worth.

      Sony hasn’t got the power over twitter, twitter has sony went over the heads of twitter. I think Sony legal team is crap.

      If this goes to court it be sony get punish not the guy.

  • Sony should’ve banned that fucking cuck for life.

    • Alistair

      Why should he get banned for life you starting to sound like them.

      Is it because he dare to show a woman pussy that ESRB already stated. And in a knee jerk from both Sony and Ubisoft decided to go full SJW his arse and censored a game that was uncensored.

      • No, I mis-read the story, I’ll take it back.

        It seems the real cucks were Sony and Ubisoft, not Swizzasaur.

        • Alistair

          I know that Sony was a SJW when then said no to modding on PS4 and now this.

          I’m going to let Sony know my feeling too. And unbisoft.

          • C G Saturation

            Most people just cant be bothered dealing with SJW shit, so they self-censor or avoid everything entirely.

            They don’t get that SJWs will still find something to bitch about. There is no escape.

  • Alistair

    Oh my we can’t have a dead hooker pussy showing can’t we Sony.

    “NO Ali you can not”

    Well fuck you sony.

    “Whaaaaaaaaaa you are Bannnnnnndddddd”

  • Alistair

    Yes censored gaming cover it, this hard handed tactics won’t cut it anymore.

    The fact Sony upped the banned for a month shows Sony a SJW regression lefts cunts. And the PS4 will be my last console from them.

    It shows that you can’t protest in a freedom of speech and expression makes advice to him take it to THE ASA.

    The PS4 was advertised showing of the share feature right. Did it ever say no nudity allowed. NO. WHAT if you stream or share play a game that have nudity will you get banned too.

    The fact is Sony fucking lied & misled people and now a banned further up to a month because he protested out.

    So there a case for the dude to take action. And if Sony banned him for good then they in the wrong.
