After the release of a seemingly sexy strip tease from Heavy Rain was leaked, a lot of gamers were under the impression that Heavy Rain would have to be censored in certain regions. This strip tease only magnified and pretty much confirmed what an Italian PlayStation blog had earlier reported that Quantic Dreams was looking to have a full QTE sex scene in its upcoming title. With these two tidbits of information, it’s hard to imagine North America or Japan allowing a fully uncensored version of the game. However, it’ll come as no surprise that Europeans receive a raw copy as they did with Fahrenheit, Quantic Dreams’ last title.
“We wanted to have pretty much the same game everywhere, be it Europe, in the United States, or in Japan, of course, with slight adaptions, for instance, the Japanese version” Fondaumiere said, “but I don’t think the changes we made will make a big difference, so that those are real modular things. We felt the need to adapt the content to the culture.”
If the game does differ in different regions, will you be prompted to import the rawest format?
