Welcome to our weekly Community Q!
Once a week we flip the tables and listen to what you guys have to say . . . rather than sitting back and make you listen to us!
Earlier this week, Kokatu reported that SEGA were offering a pre-order incentive for Japanese pre-orders of Cyber Troopers Virtual-On:Force. Reserve orders will ship with the ‘Fetish Unlock Code’ that “enables players to change the breast size of the Virtuaroid robots Fei Yen and her sister Angelan”.
Community Q: What do you think about this kind of incentive? Is this just a bit of harmless fun, or do you think it’s deliberately misogynistic, hinting – again – that some publishers and developers fail to appreciate (nor regard) the female gamer demographic? And how do you feel about Kokatu’s reporting of it? Is it meaningful gaming journalism or another example of a sexist industry?
Tell us your opinion – and your reasons behind it – right here!
