Below is a blog by Mike Capps:

"Making a game is difficult. Making a game for a worldwide audience is really difficult. Making a violent, bloody horror-infused game for a worldwide audience is maddening. German folks don't allow dismemberment. No skinned bodies for Japanese folks - and all characters need five fingers. Apparently one group was fine with people being killed by a chainsaw, but the pool of blood afterwards was too much for them. Yargh! And of course it's all completely subjective. There are no actual rules, just suggestions -- so we could pass a rating check one day, and fail the next. It's the same as MPAA ratings, I suppose; one person's R movie is another person's PG-13.

We're fussing now with different ways to ship different versions of the game for different markets. Makes for some extra work, but we'll make sure everyone gets a chance to play."

As long as we get the game on time im fine! :)

Hmmm..... who knows? Also look at Cliffy B's blog on www.cliffyb.com. He says;

'Yet another quickie. Sorry, got a game to ship!'

Does that mean.....

Another quickie? Damn his girlfriend must be paying dearly for Cliff's busy schedule. At least we will get a kick ass game.

...we really didn't need that.


And the different versions are probably collectors edition and the regular one.

So... are they gonna cut out a bunch of stuff for the german, european or japanese games? like too much blood and gore or even a sex scene *raises eye brow* now thats what every game need! haha. But I dont mind. Aslong as the North American version isnt cut one bit

Epic better not censor that Australian PAL version, or I'm gonna be pissed. I mean, just cause Germans don't like dismemberment doesen't mean everyone else in the PAL region will miss out on it, does it?

Hopefully not, that games to the game are most likely stuff like languages and translations.

Funniest sex scene in a game was 'Mafia' on Pc, tht made me chuckle!

I'm German, and I like dismemberment. (Don't call me no Nazi though :p)

PDZ couldn't have been rushed since it was in like 5 years of development (though not all the years were used making it for the 360)

The sex scene in Mafia kinda scared me. It was like watching two puppets or something.
