    Although I can already name No More Heroes 1 and 2, MadWorld, and Zangeki no Reginleiv that all came to Japan and all featured dismemberment and violence. Most of Zangeki is built on strategic dismemberment for Christ's sake. And I'm already pretty pissed they didn't put blood and shit in Peace Walker. Metal Gear Solid isn't a game for kids.

    Based on the footage shown it's likely the game would be refused classification here in Australia completely.
    We need an R18+ rating right now.

    I really hope they won't censor the game in Europe... If it's the case, I'll just import the US version. PS3 games are region free, no?

    PS3 games can be played on any PS3, so in that regard they are region free. However, DLC will not work with any region of the game. You will need a US account to buy DLC. Also, some games won't include all languages in every region. You may only be able to play in English.

    Isn't it just a robot that gets sliced in parts in that trailer? Then again, it looked just like blood and innards only with blue and black colors.

    Japan has all these twisted movies with things much worse going on... I don't really understand the logic.

    Sure would be a shame to desensitize the Japanese. They should stick to wholesome, family values like tentacle rape and sexualizing underage schoolgirls.
