China alone will be responsible for the censoring or design of any content in this game, outside of Aloy or any other Sony IP that ends up appearing in the game. The reason Jean is wearing a "summer outfit" that looks like something a grandma might wear to the beach in the 1940s has nothing to do with with Sony, and everything to do with China.

My only complain is, what will be next crossovers that now the doors are open?

As much I like Sony IPs, I don't want they inserted inside this game. Geralt from Witcher 3 inside Monster Hunter already looked cringe.

I would believe you if the other major game that they support (Honkai) has none of the bullshit censorship of this game (characters disappearing when camera goes below shoulder height, hosiery on everything, etc), which is not on a PS platform.

If the Switch version ever happens which I am convinced it never will happen, I could see Zelda characters. Maybe even Xenoblade characters.

The nice thing is that it's all pretty avoidable if you don't like the idea of cross over content. Monster Hunter was a side quest, and Genshin seems like there won't even be story content related to the character's appearance. If these sort of guest appearances were happening in the main story, though, I'd be genuinely opposed to them.

I don't understand why this unnecessary Sony/Playstation hate here for a free 5* character. Don't like her then don't get her or use her. Feels like I suddenly walked into a console war thread where Sony is being blamed for censorship and all without any basis.

Eh I'd just be jealous I can't use thing other people can use.

No reason to hate on Aloy yet. Need stats, passives, and constellations...which they haven't disclosed.

As much I dislike BOTW game, I kinda OK with Link or Zelda inside Genshin Impact because they're inserted inside Japan culture, with art direction in mind.

I don't hate Sony or Playstation, just don't accept this partnership, thats all. I more annoyed by the fact this argument is pretty much used for everyone with dislike different opinion.
'Why everyone hate Skyward Sword', inside the game review thread.

Good point. If is avoidable would be pretty fair to me.

Poor Sony, it's not like they have a record of bizarre and inconsistent censorship across multiple regions or anything. Oh wait...

Aloy looks good, maybe this will get me to actively play this game again, though I'm not too fond of bow characters.

I wonder if she's going to have an english VA only (even though a jpn version exists); nicole-458 in DOA4 had no japanese voice.
In Honkai's recent collab with EVA, Asuka only had the JPN VA as well, no chinese one.

So basically you have no direct proof of Sony enforced censorship here in GI but will assume they did so even though China itself is being hard on these things. Do you want to google about that and check? Do you really think Sony's censorship influence would be more so than China's own censorship influence? We have seen censorship in GI way before Aloy got involved but you seem to clearly dislike Sony/Playstation and its characters based on your statements.

"It's almost certain that some of the censorship "precautions" in this game were done at the behest of Sony."
"I'd rather see more KFC shit than bringing this turd into Genshin."
"I seriously don't want Sony, western games, and their politics involved in IPs that I actually enjoy."


Whatever floats your boat I guess.

〓Phase I〓
After the Version 2.1 Update – Start of Version 2.2 Update Maintenance (October 13, 2021 05:59 UTC+8)

During the event, all Travelers who log into Genshin Impact on the PlayStation®4 or PlayStation®5 system will be able to obtain Aloy directly through in-game mail.


〓Phase II〓
After the Version 2.2 Update – Start of Version 2.3 Update Maintenance (November 24, 2021, 05:59 UTC+8)

During the event, Travelers who log into Genshin Impact ON ANY AVAILABLE PLATFORM, and who have yet to obtain the character during Phase I will be able to obtain Aloy directly through in-game mail.

Can we all agree that both companies are terrible in that regard?

When taking the surveys (and you don’t care about offering your opinion) just pick the first birthday year when confirming your age.

It will skip the whole survey and you still get the rewards.

So basically you have no direct proof of Sony enforced censorship here in GI but will assume they did so even though China itself is being hard on these things. Do you want to google about that and check? Do you really think Sony's censorship influence would be more so than China's own censorship influence? We have seen censorship in GI way before Aloy got involved but you seem to clearly dislike Sony/Playstation and its characters based on your statements.

"It's almost certain that some of the censorship "precautions" in this game were done at the behest of Sony."
"I'd rather see more KFC shit than bringing this turd into Genshin."
"I seriously don't want Sony, western games, and their politics involved in IPs that I actually enjoy."


Whatever floats your boat I guess.
Certainly there is China sanctioned censorship being done to this game, but I definitely don't need an extra layer of it which is what I'm a little suspicious of with all of the tight Sony integration. I readily admit I don't much care for Sony of the past 3-4 years, so it's not like you need to quote my posts to try to make me look like a Sony hateboy or something. I used to be a huge fan of their products and platforms though, but they've really left the crowd of JP game fans in the dust the past few years, and have made some real shit (imo) decisions with censorship and what they support/condone vs. what they prevent.

Anyways, it's just my opinion, I see plenty of
going on with Reddit and twitter, so you'll be surrounded by like-minded fans when she drops into the game. It's also fine if some people don't want it to happen though.

Imagine the internal data discussions at MiHo xD " so, how we can meet the demands of our 1yo fans?"

This is what I have problem with. I don't care if others like or dislike gaming companies or their way of working. Its a problem for me when a group of people start pushing back against free stuff that many gamers are getting. I am all for pushing back against practices which are anti gamers or consumers in general. But pushing back or trying to prevent something given for free just because either you are not getting it or you don't like the company/character is pure bullshit and entitled behavior.

Praying for someone bring back Kaede friend back to life.
I like his design more than Kaz tbh. Wish he was the one to survive.
Anyway, very happy to have rolled for Kaz. He's being immensely helpful in Inazuma, both on trasversal and in combat. Also, he fits.
Tried one of the new domains, the weapon one, just afew runs - I'm impressed how NOT annoying it is. I was expecting a shitshow, considering the latest, shitty, additions to domains.

Anyway, I had forgotten how fucking amazing this game can be. Damn the exploration and core gameplay is so good. Wish it wasn't a gacha and wasn't so dependant on RNG.

Who are you to decide that? This is ultimately just an advertisement for Horizon. Would you be buttmad if there was pushback about putting a KFC billboard in Mondstadt?

Comparing KFC with HZD crossover is silly at this point. KFC is just a fastfood.

I told you so about the exploration being a huge part of the game. Don't want any Dragonspine bs, just the sensation of what was playing this game for the first time.

Not even bringing back those chests from Mon/Lyie would match releasing a entire new country with lore, chests, sigil, finding waypoints, dungeons, etc...

Ha! Yeah that would be a fun meeting. I think they have a 12 year old age limit (maybe 15). Not sure their exact cut off but this quick skip saved me time when I was playing on three accounts.

Decide what? That I don't like people trying to prevent me from getting stuff in a game I like? Why are you trying to argue apples and oranges now comparing a static billboard which wouldn't affect the way I play GI versus I being able to play with a whole new character throughout the game. I don't like some GI characters as well like Diluc and Childe and I just don't use them. I understand that others like and use them and it doesn't impact me or my GI experience in any way.

Yeah it is just an ad for Horizon FW. So what? Why are you butthurt about this so much? Is Mihoyo or Sony forcing you at gunpoint to download and play Aloy. Or is that somehow going to stop you from playing GI the way you are right now? I fail to understand how your experience is going to change because of this. All gacha games do collab to attract more gamers to their game. I am sure GI is going to be no different. Once it releases on Nintendo Switch and Series S/X I am pretty sure we'll see characters from there as well.

Every post you make is changing what the conversation was originally about, so I'm at a loss to keep going here. I believe the term is "moving the goalposts". I was originally replyng to
Feels like I suddenly walked into a console war thread where Sony is being blamed for censorship and all without any basis.
And just provided you some basis. Everything after is just a big roundabout. I don't give a shit if you like this collab or not, I was simply voicing the fact that I don't care for it, and then backing up my freedom to give feedback to MHY that I don't like it. You're the one spouting essentially "just shut up and take it" when to me, personally (not affecting you at all), I feel that this weakens the lore, story and plot. Then again, maybe the way they introduce her will be clever and well done. Guess we'll see. I'm totally fine agreeing to disagree on this matter btw. I just hate it when people try to force their own set of values and ideas onto other people and then get angry when they get a little pushback about it.

I thought we are having a discussion here and not debating/sticking a specific topic to move goalposts. Not sure if you got that. You were showing displeasure about Sony and its character being included so I felt it was like a console warrior stance where you are disliking something just because it was associated with a specific console/company. Something you confirmed yourself as well. That was what my original reply was about.

My next reply was regarding you saying that it is fine that some people dislike it and want to block/prevent it. I am not sure why you assumed that I will continue to talk about Sony/console warring after you admitted to it rather than discuss based on your latest reply. If you read that reply properly, you will get that I was just stating that I feel that its entitled behavior for people to block/prevent something for everyone just because they dislike it even when it will not change their game experience. Not sure what you got from that to come back asking who am I to decide that as I did not decide anything for anyone but myself.

Along with that irrelevant question about decision you also came up with an entirely weird comparison about a playable character versus a billboard in a game and stating that its just an ad which was what my next reply was about. I am just trying to understand the mindset of people having problem with getting free collab characters. Looking at your dp, do you like/play Monster Hunter games and played MHW? If yes then did you have similar issues with it including Final Fantasy, DMC, Witcher, Horizon, Street Fighter and Assassins' Creed stuff in it?

MH has a lonnng history of wacky collabs, so I didn't mind that nearly as much, though I still am kinda "eh" about the Witcher stuff, if I'm being honest. Also, none of them were particularly threatening to the game/franchise as much as I feel putting modern western games into an anime game is. Again, just my 2c. The only reason I even care about this is because I actually really enjoy Genshin and would hate to see it devolve into all of the same problems I have with the current western game industry. I double dipped on H:ZD on both PS4 and PC, and after actually playing it, I was not a fan. Didn't like the game, didn't like the character of Aloy.

Despite what my best possible efforts could feasibly be, nothing I do or say will get this collab taken away from you by MHY or Sony, so I still don't get why you're so pissy about the feedback that I hate this collab and will be letting them know about it. Anyways, no reason to shit up this thread with continued back and forth about this, but please feel free to PM me if you want to keep going. Also, I hope you don't take any of this personally, I consider you a pretty ok dude and fellow poster, and I would hope we're still cool despite the disagreement.

Anyways, I did end up linking my PS5 to my Genshin account, and despite it being "you only get one chance, so don't fuck it up", it was actually pretty easy and straightforward. I was pleasantly surprised to see that instantly in my inbox I received the sword/wings of Descension after firing up the game. I thought for sure they wouldn't let us "PC/Mobile first" peasants in on them. I'll have to try loading it back up on PC later and see if I can still use/access them. I also had like 30 trophies that popped up. PS5 performance is about what I'm used to with PC version, but for whatever reason they have the confirm/exit buttons swapped to X/O where on PC with a PS controller, it's O/X. Weird choice, but whatever. The load times are notably faster, but I don't run my PC games off of my OS's SSD, so I expected that. Still, it was a good experience and smooth framerate. Definitely better than the launch videos I saw with the PS4 version.

Another weird thing is that I actually had 2 world quests disappear after loading the game on PS5. I don't know what that's about, but I'll have to check later when I have more time and see if they come back on PC.

On PC you can actually swap those if you want. I have a resource farm account on PC and I was confused about it as well and then found that you can change which button works as back/exit.

On the topic, we are cool. No hard feelings. Just wanted to have a good discussion and understand others mindsets. You are in my GI friends list but we never got to play co-op anytime I guess.
