    I'm sure if this was Sony US or EU trying this, it'd get those sorts of responses. But, for whatever reason, Japan seems okay with men gawping at schoolgirls in a way that the West almost certainly respond kindly too. If a free demo for Morpheus users available worldwide, I expect the Daily Mail to generate a lot of negative publicity.

    but that content are much safer than porn, why its become something "risque"?

    Porn is very heavily regulated with multiple forms of id required to prove legal age, tight restrictions on content based on the laws of the country, unlimited number of watchdogs just dying to sue anyone for stepping out of line, you name it. These Japanese video games on the other hand to me look like they get away with rendering 14 year old girls under the guise of "art". There is tons of Japanese porn where the girls wear just about identical outfits as in the above demo, the primary difference is that in the real Japanese porn the girls actually look 18+ unlike the games where they look like the just lost their baby teeth. I'm as liberal as they coming having grown up in Montreal and now living in LA, but still these Japanese games with really young girls put in suggestive situations just weird me out. Your mileage may vary. I have no doubt it will sell like crazy in Japan though, so good for business I guess.

    I sure would have learned a lot with a chick wearing mini skirts in my face. Yep. No distractions at all

    If they make this F2P and charge extra for all the 'actions' in the game it will print $$$. They could keep updating it throughout the gen and eventually have something pretty extensive..

    The age of the models. Men fantasising over young teenagers is pretty much criminal in many places, where in other places in the world it's the norm, and even sexual relations/forced marriages with teenagers is culturally acceptable.

    We're getting very RSPCA here. I didn't say against the law, but 'criminal', using it as the adjective describing something as wrong. It's not illegal to think anything. However, the current climate would mean that if people could read your mind and found fantasies about minors there, plenty of people would take action against you. Aspects of thought police do exist - the mere presence of certain materials in your possession can get you into serious trouble, making things like research rather difficult for some folk. I expect a game about fantasising about minors to be as popular in places like the UK as a game about fantasising a terrorist plot. There are taboos, and some Japanese games are on the other side of those taboos for some cultures. That probably goes the other way, too, with Western ideas considered acceptable being consider nigh criminal to others.

    Care to explain what.s rspca??

    I tried to look for it. I got royal society for the animal protection?? Lol
    Is it a substitute of going off topic? Or has to do with overprotection?

    It should be RPSC (which is on the site forum - general discussion)... At least the one I know is RPSC. RSPCA, I don't really know. Shifty, what's the A?

    I merely pointed that there's nothing criminal, in the non extended sense of the word, about fantasising; I sincerely didn't want to go OT.
    Wether it is "right or wrong" for "men", as you say, to have fantasies about having sex with a teenager it's truly something I have no intention to discuss.

    Games about murder, assassination, mutilation, violence are are very, very popular even in cultures that condemn them so a "sex game" could be just as popular.

    Anyway I see little explicit sex in that video.
    In Resident Evil 4, to name one, you could try to peek under Ashley's skirt and her reaction was not dissimilar to the one the girl has here.
    I believe that MGS 2 had a similar scenario with Emma.

    Child voyeurism games don't go over very well in North America. I'm sure it would have a cult audience here from anime fans, which could be a pretty large market. You just won't see it displayed or advertised prominently like you would in Japan and maybe a few other countries.

    Did I really see a discussion on pedophilia on the B3D console forum?
