    The Ubisoft party game which was due for release on the Nintendo Wii and the PS3 later this year, will not be available for purchase in the US. Parents and other activists protested over the “startlingly sexual” trailer and said that this game encouraged underage sex. Matthew Reynolds over at digitalspy.co.uk reported, "Ubisoft has just announced that the We Dare game will not be available for purchase in the US."[/p]

    People make too much of a fuss over these things. It's not like anyone is being forced to play it. If you don't wanna play mature games, don't buy them. That said, I couldn't care less about this game, so this doesn't come as a blow to me. It is a bit sad we have parents reacting like this to a stupid trailer.

    The problem is that it's got a PEGI 12+ rating. That's the reason why parents are fussing over it.

    EDIT: 500th post!

    Europe just beat Japan for once and seriously this is banned, there's stuff you can import from Japan freely that's worse than this.

    And really if it's the equivalent Teen rating that's the problem, alter it, Japan gives COD a Z rating all the time and have it on sale, why can't this get an M rating out of cultural differences.

    [​IMG] I actually thought the ad was a mock ad along the lines of something like College Humor. Didn't realize this was an actual ad. Go, Ubisoft! Now, that takes moxie.

    Basically sums up the difference in attitudes each side of the atlantic that in the US games with slightly sexual overtones are seen as worse than games about KILLKILLDIE.

    just look at the boxart... if a person hasnt looked at the trailer, this will give u ALL the details
    i'm still very surprised at the rating. Something must have been changed to give it a gaming feeling or probably the content of the game is 12+ but the "activities" in relation to it are for much older players

    Man, ain't nothin' slight about those sexual overtones. Those folks are about to break out the toys and get jiggy.

    But yeah, I agree with you all the same. [​IMG] If I had a choice between teaching kids about sex or violence, I'd opt for sex any ole day of the week. Procreate > pro-destroy.

    Not our fault you Americans have draconian laws over sex. I mean, 18? Really? Its 16 here in the UK and we're fine.
    Anyway, its understandable, people would be up in arms about this in America.

    Edit: Also... Its Games That Yanks Can't Wank but they're generall not great. (Webshow by LarryBundyJr or GuruLarry, great laugh normally)

    Because teens totally can't play truth or dare without a console.
