Just finished reading this:

GLEN COVE, N.Y.--Nov. 4, 2002--The official countdown for the launch of this year's most talked about video games has begun, as AKA Acclaim, a division of Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ.SC: AKLM), today announced that its eagerly anticipated release, BMX XXX, will launch on November 15 for the PlayStationŽ2 computer entertainment system. Only this version of the game has been edited to eliminate the topless nudity.

I think it's funny to think about all the 12 year old PS2 owners who had BMXXXX on thier Christmas list trying to be all sneaky...that's hilarious!

That gimmick was just a desperate cry from a game that wouldn't sell one copy without nudity.


If that's the best they can deliver maybe they should look into writing accounting software instead of games.

PS2 might use the censored version as a marketing scheme against Xbox... They may try and state that they are still looking to control what america's youth are watching and playing and that they still care about family values and all that...

You watch... PS2 is going to speak out against the Xbox version...

I believe the request came from Sony to have
the topless mode removed. But if you read the
statement, it sounds as though the unlockable
stripper movies are still there. Weird..

well, because with xbox you can control the ESRB content, so the parent
knows their kids wont be able to play this game on xbox!!

but you knew that, right?

Yes, then all those kids are going to play games where you steal cars, shoot cops, pick up prostitutes, sell drugs, rob stores, and advertise for the film studio by showing a huge picture of tėts on the side of a building...what a crock of shyt, Sony.

The standards for what's acceptable in society is so hypocritical and a$$-backwards...violence, drug sales, and profanity is ok...but you can't show a nipple...what a joke...

I think it's really weird that the GC version is not cencored as well...looks like PS2 has taken the place for the kiddie console! LOFL!

I was told by an EB employee that they are allowed to sell mature rated games to anyone, as long as they tell them than it contains blood, violence, etc, whatever. So a 6 year old could go into a store by himself and buy a game where people are getting shot and killed and profanity is being yelled all over, and thats acceptable.

I was wondering...since when is it ok to say shėt as many times as you want to in a PG-13 rated movie, but too much blood is wrong...?

Perhaps they realized that shėt is not a bad word, it's the same thing as crap, turd, poop, poopy, dung, etc...its just a word, what idiot took up the responsibility to decide than a word that has about 15 synonyms is a bad word? That ticks me off so much. Shėt is not a bad word, if it is...then crap is too...because its the same thing.

In a lot of ways, the whole thing is kinda silly. For example:

pretty much everyone agrees that the word "F*CK" is a profanity, yet everone on the radio now is saying, "F you!" (in place of "F*CK you!")
so I pose this question to everyone. When does using a certain word or phrase to REPLACE a certain profane word or phrase become meaningless?

what I mean by that is...in that situation, when does saying "F you!" start becoming profane just as actually saing "F*CK you!"

afterall, isn't that what makes a word or phrase profane? The meaning or what it represents?

So if you think about it, basically ANYTHING could be "profane"

I'll just start thinking the word "Profane" is profane. ;)

But you see, 'ƒuck you' is an insult, shėt is the same exact thing as crap. If you say "I have to take a poo poo", you could simply replace 'poo poo' with 'shėt' and it would mean exactly the same thing.

Only an ignorant moron would think that shėt is a bad word.

A euphanism ( I believe I have it spelled correctly) is replacing a "curse" word with a "slang" term...
