    over here the age limit 15+ for m-ma rated games

    if you really want the game then buy it on the intranet, they dont check ur age or anything (for most of them i think)

    but you also need a credit card for that and you need to be 18 to have one. but you could have you parents buy one online for you. but that would also mean you could have them buy you one offline

    i don't understand the big deal about ratings in america.( it seems parents take a much firmer line on it than here in britain) anyhoo
    I'm kinda glad its geting a higher rating, then the game can explore more darker issues and be a bit more "hardcore" . seeing tits in a game i real have no beef with, (although it is embarissing when people look at your screen and your like"its just part of the game!" )

    i agree with the people who said the wii needs more mature games.

    Just in reply to Nates "ZOMG this is degrading to teh womenz" have you ever thought that not ever stripper is forced into it by nasty drug lords and pimps? That's like saying "Porn is teh evil it degrades women" when there are many many porn stars who are quite happy with what they're doing.

    I for one think it would be a bad idea NOT to have a strip joint in the game I mean come on, you're going through the seedy underworld of the Japanese Yakuza, and it would be completely unrealistic sans naked strippers. I mean really guys, as has been said before what's worse. Guns, stabbings, murders or a stripper in a club...really...

    To everyone who is under 18, stop being a whiny bitch, not every game has to have an E rating, you don't have to be able to play every game and if you can't then just suck it up. Ubisoft don't have to pander to your whims.

    And guys...really...I can't believe this is all over some game nudity, it's on before the watershed now _ it's no big deal.

    I must say I'm strongly in agreeance with Napalmbrain and wiiener. I think personally a bit of a sexual element is good in a game. Besides, did any of you arguing fellas stop to think that maybe its there to give further colour to illustrate just what kind of world you are in when you enter the world of red steel? A world of sleaze, debauchery, loose ethics, questionable morals? I wonder did anyone ever think about this?

    I would almost be shocked if they didnt include stuff like this in the game. And as for all the pre-pubescent kids wanting mummy to buy them this game - grow up. This game should be rated for mature audiences (I would feel strange if this game didnt have an MA/Restricted rating). Nintendo needs more games like this, and as for the poster who said this is more of a Sony thing, did you even stop to think maybe thats why Sony is so much more successful than Nintendo in the current console gen? because it has more games that appeal to an older audience without having whiney kids complaining about there being a few drops of blood or some flesh shown? Nintendo needs something exclusive to appeal to older audience and not jus to appease the younger fanboys. Stop complaining, dont ruin the games for everyone else. If you can't handle the reality of downtown Neo-Tokyo and its questionable ethics, don't play the game. If you're complaining over a little bit of flesh you'll find ALOT more than that offensive in this game my friend.

    In response to Nate's Rant about degradation of women, I've known a couple of strippers who gladly take their clothes off for money and they love the work (I attended class with one back in 2004 and another I met at the absinthe bar I go to, with her boyfriend before anyone gets any suss ideas bout me ). Besides, in what way is stripping any different than being promiscuous, other than getting paid for it? I don't see anyone feeling sorry for all the girls who sleep with anything they get their hands on because they chose to.

    Sex is everywhere anyway. Why shouldnt it be part of games? Questioning the presence of sex in games is like questioning the presence of sex anywhere else, including but not limited to: TV, Movies, the Cinema, Literature, and Music. By having a sexual element in games it gives the older audience something in common with the games, as well as those who are sick of the chunky colourful worlds of so many childish titles whose only redeeming quality is "good gameplay". We can't survive on gameplay alone. We need something that we like.

    I'm sorry if that sounded too angry, it just burns me up to hear people complaining about things that are just so commonplace in the world today. 50 years ago this would probably have been taboo for the most part, but this is the 21st century. No one should care about issues like this anymore. Sex? Gore? Who cares, as long as the game is cool, fun, and atmospheric I'll play it

    Besides, the parents have no right to b*&^% about their kids playing these kinds of games if they're the ones buying the games. Maybe they should open their eyes/get new glasses before listening to little billy and actually check if the game is suitable to their kids age bracket.

    Exactly Mr_Stoukaph, which really doesn't make sense, sex and violence is everywhere else in the world. Lousy politicians, why is this considered a political matter anyway? because its un-politically correct?

    Perhaps you should shut up and stop being a "whiny bitch." No one is whining here; some just aren't old enough and they're frustrated. I don't know why I've had to point this out twice and just to say, I'm turning 18 in September, so it's not a problem for me. Also, I know that there are also a lot of strippers and prostitutes that go willingly into what they do, but you obviously don't realize that there are even more strippers and prostitutes that are forced into or born into their profession in many third world countries; I know, I did a paper on it.

We can't survive on gameplay alone. We need something that we like.
    Oh boy, where do I start? First, strippers will say their just fine and dandy stripping almost anytime you ask them. Why? Because they have confidence issues and need to feel wanted by losers who go to strip clubs. I call them losers because they obviously are too fat, ugly, unintelligent and or disgusting to get a REAL girlfriend! People who think peep shows are a good time really deserve to be shot because a)while they say it's not that bad, they themselves would NEVER get up on stage and do it b)they generally think the strippers actually like them when really, they just want money and c) if it were their mother or sister or daughter up on stage, they probably beat up every guy in the place.

    Next, you say sex is everywhere now. I agree and it's pretty sad because everyone's so superficial now and all they want is a one night stand which leads to unwanted pregnancies which leads to either abortions (I'm pro choice but not as a form of birth control like the pill; should be used as a last resort) unwanted children that grow up unappreciated or are put in the horrible foster care system where they are abused and neglected. Of course, if your like a lot of assholes out there, you don't give a damn because you think birth control is up to the woman which it is:50%. Men have the other 50% but they only use a condom like 20% of the time. Also, all this meaningless sex helps continue the spread of AIDS which kills millions every year, which causes taxes to rise on everything, making it harder for people to make a living so they steal, sell drugs, or do something degrading like...become a stripper; a comes around, full circle.

    Sort of as a side note, neither Scarface, nor the Godfather movies, which were extremly violent and gory had strippers; real gangsters don't waste their time and money on that, not that I'm a gangster or anything. So, why should it be in Red Steel? You say a "bit of flesh" but it's not just a glimpse of a leg or even the DOA girls. In that picture is full on nudity, yet it's not a real girl. This really appeals to you. Seriously, you need a counselor if you like that stuff.

    Now, I would like to agree with you on the point about tooooooooo many kids games. Yes, I'm sick of the bubble gum themed worlds aswell. That said, I'm tired of all the breast physics. Half-life 2, Halo, and even GTA; none of these have nudity (GTA has hookers but they don't really do anything). I want more mature material, intricate storylines, intelligent character (maybe a girl character that's not all about body) and of course gameplay. I just feel Ubisoft is putting this stuff in not to illustrate the seedy world your in, but instead to get press. I also agree here as I did before that these politicians need to get a grip on where this stuff is really off the wall, like on the internet. Gosh, this stuff is just child's play, no pun intended, compared to what can be found through a simple google search, but instead they go after videogames because they think were a bunch of 12 year olds (oh, and quit hating on little kids. I hate it when people say "I hate little kids!!" Give me a break, you were one too at one time. It's the parent's fault if the kid is whiny, but no one here is whining are they?)

    So, do you understand where I'm coming from now? I'm not saying it's any better or worse than nudity on TV or the internet. I'm trying to say that when people get a real girlfriend that really means something to them, this excess nudity is just annoying and it actually makes me feel like I'm playing something some prepubesant 12 year old thought up.

    I'm really glad this discussion is going on.
