No, this isn’t one of George’s old “spot the differences” contests. SEGA Network chum TheGagaman spotted this funny difference between the US and UK sites for Jet Set Radio. See the change? Piranha’s boobies have been covered by a green tank top. Guess somebody at SEGA legal thought the US page was too scandalous for the kiddies. No word if this change will be applied to the in-game character (unlikely), but its a funny example of American squeamishness.Ad:

Well, I sure as hell don’t want my kids seeing cleavage! I want them to have some nice healthy entertainment instead, like impaling someone with a chainsaw.
I don’t get why America is so uptight about sex, yet is much more liberal on violence.
Rather fuck than die.
You sir. Are a winner. I cosign.
i don’t what the heck americans always change things
Only in the US….
I don’t really see why people think this has to do with America….they could have released the original photo and I doubt anyone in America would have either noticed or cared, to be honest.
I’m guessing somebody at SoA, legal perhaps, went through the assets and said that in order for the page to be approved for all audiences, the edit had to be made. Bayonetta has the age restriction page, JSR might have had that if they didn’t do the edit. Just a guess.
Now I know I’m getting old. I’m like “well, that green shirt goes nicely with the jacket and she looks a little less skanky.” XD
The UK (Scotland & England) is much more liberal on this stuff like Japan unlike the US which seems to be much more censored on many things I’ve noticed, not just games either, but all media in general.
This has got to be one of the smallest yet pointless examples yet though.
Speaking as a 23 year old girl…cover that shit up, you ho! But seriously, how can you skate effectively enough to outrun the police in that get-up? You’d fall out in 5 seconds.
I personally think it’s just SoA being over-cautious, if anything. I see people wear more revealing outfirs on TV all the time…PG-rated TV, too. And any magazine in a grocery store checkout lane with a model or actress on the cover has probably just as revealing an outfit on.
This is the amazing post.
