"Marginal für den deutschen Markt angepasst"

Aus einem Telefonat mit einem PR-Manager:

"Hi! Sag mal, ihr hattet doch USK-Probleme mit Spiel soundso."
"Was? USK-Probleme? Nein, wir haben keine Jugendfreigabe bekommen."
"Ja, aber ursprünglich hat die Demo doch keine Kennzeichnung bekommen."
"Ach so. Ja, weil die aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen war und es nur um Töten wie am Fließband ging. Aber die Demo ist ja jetzt veröffentlicht worden."
"Okay ... habt ihr die deutsche Vollversion für die Freigabe jetzt irgendwie geschnitten?"
"Was heißt geschnitten? Nein ... naja ... also wir haben marginale Sachen angepasst. Die fiesen Geräusche beim Nahkampf sind raus. Da war noch irgendwas, ist mir aber entfallen."

Und da wundert sich noch jemand, wenn in Spielemagazinen ab und zu nicht auf Kürzungen eingegangen wird? In den meisten Fällen merkt man ja auf Anhieb "Ah, da fehlt Blut!" oder "Ach wie nett, Robotergegner!". Im Normalfall hat man aber keine ungekürzte Fassung vorliegen, sodass verringerte Blutmenge, fehlendes Ragdoll-Modell bei toten Gegnern oder eben Knackgeräusche nicht auffallen. Ausweichende PR-Manager der Marke "Ja, wir mussten geringfügig für den deutschen Markt anpassen. Müsste ich nachschauen." helfen da nicht besonders.
Klar, dass die ihre deutschen Versionen verkaufen wollen ... aber mir ist es immer extrem unangenehm, wenn bei einem Test die entsprechenden Hinweise fehlen. So, nun hab ich mir aber den "aufgebournten" "Haze" von der Seele geredet. ;)

Kommentare:

  1. Ist ja interessant zu wissen...
    Ich ärgere mich sehr wenn in einem Test nichts über die Kürzungen steht (So habe ich mir z.B damals PSI-Ops geholt, da im Test kein einziges Wort darüber verloren wurde)
    Dass die PR Leute noch versuchen alles zu verharmlosen oder gar abstreiten (Orange box z.B), grenzt an Betrug!
    Allein von der Logik her ist es doch bescheuert (geschnitten ab 18, ungeschnitten Freigabe verweigert, wodurch es aber trotzdem ab 18 ist, sinnlos)
    Ich denke ihr solltet bei sowas im Heft kritischer sein und eventuell mal richtig über diesen Verhalten berichten.
    Es ist wirklich unverschämt, was dem deutschen Käufer alles zugemutet wird. Nur sehr wenige wissen darüber bescheid...

    -es fehlen sämtliche knochenbruch geräusche
    -blut wurde stark reduziert
    -die takedowns sind weit weniger heftig
