Nekopara Censorship Ps4

Sony's been on the receiving end of a backlash recently as it's seemingly decided to alter its stance on mature content and themes in PlayStation games. Japanese developers in particular are having their titles censored to varying degrees, and apparently, the process isn't especially pleasant.

The whole thing's been rumbling on for weeks now, and it's not showing any real signs of slowing. Proceedings have become particularly heated again thanks to a game called Nekopara Vol. 1, a typically risque visual novel-style title that sees the player interact with a couple of frisky catgirls.

Nekopara Vol. 1's readily available over on Steam, but it's the game's console launch that has people talking. It's out on both the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4, but as you've probably guessed, the PS4 version has been altered to suit Sony's aforementioned stance.

The title features nudity along with some sexually-charged scenes and dialogue, as well as a 'breast jiggle' slider that lets you choose how bouncy you want your catgirls to be. Because of all this, the game's rated M, or Mature on Switch. However, on PS4, it's sat there with an E for Everyone. That's quite the change.

That's because on Sony's system, there's less nudity thanks various visual effects, and the breast jiggle slider has been removed entirely.

And so the censorship debate rages on. What do you make of this? Is Sony in the right to alter its platform's games, or is it making a mistake? Keep calm in the comments section below.
