Because dead goats tell tales: GoW II pics to be removed from OPM

Another censor bar please... - Image 1Oooh, another censor bar! Future Publishing, the guys handling the Official PlayStation Magazine (OPM), have just announced that they would be removing from their publication the offensive images of a dead goat as seen in footage of a God of War II event in Greece last March. This is in light of the recent apology made by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE).

A spokesperson from Future had this to say about the deal struck between Sony and their company and what they are now planning to do:

It was a joint decision to remove the offending pages across the print run. But the copies for subscribers have already been sent out so we can’t recall them. The decision was made to remove the pages in 80,000 copies of the magazine being prepared for the newstands.

It’s yet to be confirmed if pictures of other mature content (e.g. body-painted promo girls) will also be retracted. We find it interesting though that here in QJ, most of the commenters seem to be focused on the girl and her ample chest rather than the goat itself… We also noticed that as we post more on the said issue, more and more black censor bars appear on the pic. At the rate things are going… Nah, we kid. *wink*
