RE5 Versus mode blocked from German release

Tuesday, 7th April 2009 11:33 GMT By Patrick Garratt

residentevil535’s reporting that Resident Evil 5′s Versus mode DLC won’t be released in Germany.

The content failed to get a USK rating, according to the site, despite the fact the game itself was released.

Versus hits both PS3 and 360 versions of Capcom’s horror today.

    That’s so stupid…

    I was able to buy the uncut Game here in Germany, so why can’t i download the DLC???

    I for myself don’t want the DLC(me thinks this is a rip) but it’s not fair.

    Maybe they can download the DLC from an other Marcetplace in Europe, since there’s only one European Version of Resident Evil 5.

    Even in the Uk they have the USK Sticker on their discs^^

    Because shooting zombies is OK, but shooting people is not.

    “Because shooting zombies is OK, but shooting people is not.”

    And here we have the stupid part… no offence

    I’ve bought Killzone 2 uncut here in Germany.
    It’s rated 18+

    If i recall it right and i’m pretty sure about that.

    You Kill people in Killzone 2!!!

    No Zombies, no Alines, no whatsoever…

    And GTA 4 wasn’t cut either. And what do you kill in GTa 4??? People…again…

    So there is no problem for the USk if you shoot people.

    That’s why i don’t understand the USks decision on this one.

    I’m starting to believe, that Capcom is the one to Blame here.

    They ‘ve done this shit at least once before.

    Capcom gave the USk a Resident Evil 4 without the Mercenaries mode, so it was not present on the German RE4 Disc.

    Capcom said later that this was a mistake made by themself.

    With Resident Evil 5 they’ve done it better. Mercenaries is on the Disc this Time and the USk didn’t cut shit.

    Something here smells fishy…

    In Germany, it’s usually problematic if you earn points for killing as many human-looking enemies as possible. Therefore, the Mercenaries mode is questionable, too. It doesn’t make any sense to refuse a rating for the Versus mode only.
