Just when we thought Gamers For Gaming didn't have enough to do, we hear word of yet more inanity regarding the censorship of videogames. According to the guys at Gaming Today, they've recently had to remove two trailers for Dark Sector because, many months after their official releases, the ESRB has suddenly decided it didn't like the "excessive or offensive content" found within.
At the request of the developers, Gaming Today has pulled the trailers, but is understandably confused as to why the ESRB has put the squeeze on this great looking game. As far as I'm aware, this is the first time a trailer has essentially been censored from the Internet in such a strange fashion, at least this long after they were cleared for release. The two trailers have been out since December 2006 and March 2007! Talk about an epic backpeddle and possible indication that something very screwed up is happening.
Hey, do you remember what we've been saying about slippery slopes? It's time to grab something to hold onto, folks, because it's sliding time. You can be sure that we here at Destructoid, like with the censorship trendsetter Manhunt 2, will keep our teeth sunk into this story and any stories regarding further censorship and outright hysteria over games. Right now I worry my fears are coming true that a disappointing new precedent may have been set.
