New 'South Park' game gets censored in Europe The new "South Park: The Stick of Truth" has been censored in Europe, with scenes cut.
For the release in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the cut scenes will be replaced with on-screen text that describes the action happening behind the censors.

Reads the documentation: "Seven scenes of about 20 seconds each are censored in the EMEA console versions of South Park: The Stick of Truth. The decision to cut this content from the game was made by Ubisoft EMEA."

A few of the censored scenes include a "A mini-game where a doctor is performing an abortion on the player," a "mini-game where the player is performing an abortion on the character Randy" and "five 'anal probing' scenes in which characters are 'actively' being probed."

The game is rated 18+ and Mature in all nations.

Anal probing....hmmm, games are getting just a LITTLE weird don`t you think?

Of course when South Park does it, it`s usually friggin hilarious!

Tv shows like southpark ,family guy, american day are popular because they are offensive,they are contraversial.Personally i wouldn't want a southpark game to be 100% kid friendly its not the southpark way.

What a pity. The world has become more prudish imo.

I don't suppose they cut out any of the pontificating? :)

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
