Sony has confirmed that the European release of Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls has been censored. Sony says that around 5-10 seconds of footage has been edited in the European release so that the game could get a PEGI 16 rating.

Do PEGI ratings actually influence purchase decisions in any way? I'd swear about 99% of Battlefield or CoD players are well under the PEGI recomended age.

I played the Demo for this game last night. It is a truly Beautiful game when it comes to characters but the environment is rather barren and not very detailed. (except for when it rains) I will not be buying the game when it comes out simply because it is an on rails game that is essentially a movie with QuickTime events that if you fail them the whole scene starts over again.

Ah so it's in the "pretty much all video games post-2008" genre. Disappointing.

no i actually mean on rails as in you just watch it. and it runs around for itself for most of the game. its not like a typical game where you are linear moving where it wants you. You do not even get to control the movement of the character for most of it.

EU still has nudity, it's US that's censored it. EU has a scene of violence censored.

Basically

EU: Boobs!
US: Violence!

It's a spiritual successor to Heavy Rain, a very story and choice driven game.

So basically they were trying to sneak things past the censors and got caught? :D
